Who are you playing with in 2012?
Not sure.  Free agent – [email protected]
Why do you like the game of softball?

It gives me an opportunity to stay competitive.  I have also met some great people and life long friends.
Who is the best softball player you have ever seen play?
Defensively hands down Matt Pesso, the guy can flat out pick it and he is always in the right spot.  Offensively my dad Mike Calise Sr. one of the best all around power hitters back in the day.  Heck he can still hit it a mile on one good leg.
What is your nickname in softball?
Where do you call home?
Queen Creek, Arizona
Did you play sports in High School / College / Pro?
Played baseball in high school and was given the opportunity to play ball in college, but stopped early to pursue a career in the fire service.
How did you get your start in softball and how did you get to the upper level?
Played with a local D team for a year then I just started moving up each year.  That was always my goal to get to the next level.  Played 2 years of conference ball at the B level and would love another opportunity to play again.
What position do you play?
I usually play the middle, but I can play anywhere on the infield.
What batting grip do you use?
Standard baseball grip
What do you do in the offseason to prepare for the next softball season?
With my job I have to stay in good shape year round, but for ball I try to hit and take groundballs as much as time(kids) allow me.
What is your favorite sports team?

What is your favorite sport other than softball?

Do you have any superstitions and if so, what are they?

I always do the same stretch before an at bat, and always look at what I have written under my hat before I get in the box.
What is your most memorable softball moment?

Winning the ASA 'B' National with Sonnys in 2010
Is slowpitch softball a sport or a game?

Its a sport
What is the best improvement upper level softball could make?
Stay consistent with the bat testing, the guys that can hit will always stay around the upper level and it will weed out the guys that depend on a altered bat.
What is your favorite non-World tournament?
The Mcquade, only went once but it was awsome
What is the funniest thing you have ever seen on a softball field?
Too many to list, something funny always happens on the ball field.
