Utilizing the impressive — yet highly illegal — gymnastics windup, she significantly reduced the amount of distance she needed to reach home plate. She’s already proven she has the arm to throw the full 60 feet.
The “Fierce 5” custom jersey was a nice touch. You don’t see enough middle-aged dudes walking around in that particular customization. There must be a good reason.
