On the Beat with Sammy Marshall of the Chicago Bandits 2015

Today, the Johngy's Beat and Justin's World of Softball joint coverage of the 2015 Chicago Bandits features rookie infielder Sammy Marshall.  Sammy was drafted in the fourth round out of Western Illinois University.
The third player ever drafted by the NPF out WIU, Sammy was the WIU Senior Female Athlete of the Year.  She racked up a lot of other honors and awards at WIU and left as the all-time leader at WIU for career hits, career runs scored and career batting average.
We talked about her path to the Bandits, playing a role on the team and much more.  Because she is a big fan of the Chicago Bears, I also asked for her opinion on the new Bears coach.  In addition to her speed, Sammy brings intensity and poise to the Bandits.  It is going to be fun watching her career develop.
After you watch the video, check out for more info and updates.  Most importantly, check out a game in person!
