Our recurring coverage of the Chicago Bandits brings us to Angel Bunner. The fourth year pitcher was a mid-season addition to the Bandits.
Angel starred at Auburn, where she had a record of 44-21. She ranks in the Auburn Top Ten in ERA (2.24), batting average against (.226), wins (44), saves (6) and strikeouts (326). She also has the third-best single-season ERA at 1.53 in 2011 and the single-season record for fewest walks with 22 in 2012.
She was drafted by the Carolina Diamonds with the 17th pick in the 2012 draft. She was the first player from Auburn to be drafted in the NPF. After the Diamonds folded, she joined the New York/New Jersey Comets. She also pitched fror the Pennsylvania Rebellion.
Joining any team in midseason is tough. In limited action, Angel has already contributed by bolstering the pitching staff.
We moved outside for this interview. Please excuse the occasional airplane (but that's part of the experience at the Ballpark in Rosemont). Angel talked to us about her draft experience, joining the Bandits, seeing Chicago and more. I also revisited an interview from Justin's World of Softball, in which Angel was asked about her three necessities if stranded on an island. I really liked Angel's answer to that question.
