On the Beat With Brenna Moss of Chicago Bandits 2016

Our recurring coverage of the National Pro Fastpitch Chicago Bandits continues today with Brenna Moss.  Brenna is the speedy second year outfielder from Fresno State.
While at Fresno State, she was named the 2014 MWC Defensive Player of the Year.  Among her other achievements was being the all time stolen bases leader at Fresno State.  After a very successful career at Fresno State, Brenna was drafted in the third round of the 2015 draft by the Bandits.  She was the first player from Fresno State drafted to the NPF since 2005.
Last season, she had 113 at bats and 20 hits for a .177 average, with 10 runs,1 home run, 10 rbi's and 5 stolen bases.  This season, she is hitting .135, with 7 runs, 1 rbi and 2 stoeln bases.
Brenna had the fortunae of being a rookie on the 2015 NPF champion Bandits, but that comes with a downside of minimal playing time.  Brenna has a lot of speed and ability and a great attitude to match.  I think she will really blossom as the season progresses.
In the interview, we talked about Laura Berg, her role model.  It was interesting to hear Brenna talk so proudly about Berg, a softball legend.  Obviously, Brenna has respect for the game and her coaches.
That also came through clearly when she talked about adjusting to softball from college to the professional ranks.  In college, she was a standout.  The NPF is loaded with college standouts and playing time is well-earned and hard-fought.  Brenna understands the system and is weorking very hard to imrpove her game and make her name in the NPF.
We also talked about her workouts, seeing Chicago, her number and more fun stuff.  I really appreciate Brenna's time and I thank the Bandits for this opportunity, as always.
