Athlete of the Month – August
Athlete of the Month
Our August Athlete of the Month is Emma Trussell! She has been a consistent key player on her team, the San Diego Batbusters. She is currently batting a solid .360 with 6 doubles. In her most recent tournaments, she has thrown out more than 50% of runners on steal attempts. She is heading into her junior year at Bonita Vista High School.
Since Emma joined our Batbusters team she has solidified the catcher position. She has exceptional defensive skills and has become a force with her bat. She continually outperforms the opposing catchers which is speaks volumes onto itself because of high quality teams that we play. Emma has the ability to make a good pitcher great with her framing and blocking skills as well as calling a great game which is a craft not too many can master at this young age. She’s garnered a lot of college attention this past season through all her hard work and her game has really come together. She’s at the point where she’ll have great choices on where she wants to play at the next level and it’s all due to her playing big in the big games. Congratulations Emma, your selection as “Athlete of the Month” is well deserved!
