On the Beat with Tammy Williams of the Chicago Bandits 2015

Today, the Johngy's Beat and Justin's World of Softball joint coverage of the 2015 Chicago Bandits features shortstop Tammy Williams.  The 6rh year veteran is a double threat as a defensive stalwart and an excellent hitter, too.
Tammy started every game at shortstop during her stellar career at Northwestern.  She holds several Northwestern records and received many awards and honors.  The  Bandits drafted Tammy in the second round in 2009.
In her six seasons with the Bandits, Tammy has been a joy to watch.  She is a star on the field and a fan favorite.  As of this writing, she is hitting .265 with 1 home run, 15 rbi's and 6 stolen bases, while making only one error.
In our interview, we talked to Tammy about her sports idol, her coaching career and her future with the Bandits.  Tammy was uncertain about playing next year, but she did state that if she returned, next season would be her last.
Whenever Tammy does decide to retire, it will be a sad day for the Bandits and the NPF.  It has been my pleasure to watch her up close over the last two seasons.  Tammy and Danielle Zymkowitz (2nd base) are so smooth as a combo.  It is beautiful watching them out there.  At least Bandit Nation has been able to call Tammy one of our own for her entire career.  Still, I vote for one more year!
After you watch the video, head to for more info and updates.  Then, be sure to check out the Bandits in person, on television or on YouTube.  There are still a few home games left!  Get to a game before the season ends!
