“Mikaela is a hard working student of the game.  Her passion for catching and helping the pitchers is a real strength of hers.  This year is an important development year as she is training and being mentored by senior, Bri Cassidy. Mikaela is a sponge to learning and will spend the necessary time to maximize her skills.  We are anxious to watch this young lady develop and grow her talent.”
