Luisa's Mom signed her up for baseball at 12 because it was more convenient than softball. Baseball isn't very popular in Australia so her Mom didn't know the difference between the two.
The error proved to be a blessing. Luisa fell deeply in love with the game and has pushed well beyond the societal limits that have been placed on girls and woman in the game of baseball.
At 20 years old Luisa has made the roster at Green River College; not as a novelty but as a key member that will contribute to the overall success of the team. She lives baseball 24 hours a day. When she's away from the field, she's at Driveline where she works as the Baseball Technologies Coordinator. She gets to play with all the really cool data and technology offered at Driveline.
In our conversation she tells her incredible story, and shares tips to improve strength, bat speed and enhance arm care.
