We are very happy to continue our coverage of the back-to-back reigning National Pro Fastpitch champion Chicago Bandits. Today, our coverage brings us to newcomer Taylah Tsitsikronis.
Taylah was one of four Aussie Spirit players to join the NPF last season. With the Pennsylvania Rebellion, Taylah played in 12 games, hitting .100 in 20 at bats, with one home run, one rbi and one run scored.
Taylah and 7 other Aussies joined the Bandits for the 2017 season. She has already gotten into 8 games, hitting .200 with 2 rbi and 3 runs scored.
In between her stops in the NPF, she played in the World Cup of Softball and the Women’s World Softball Championship. If that isn't enough, the 2020 Olympics are also on her radar.
Clearly Taylah is one talented and busy player. I am really looking forward to watching Taylah for the rest of the 2017 season as she settled into her role with the Bandits. I see big things ahead for Taylah.
In our interview below, we discussed all of this. I also asked her about catching versus playing other positions and some other fun stuff.
Being with 7 of her Aussie mates must help, but playing in a foreign land has to be a challenge, especially playing in the NPF, where the best of the best of the United States play. Taylah is certainly up for that challenge.
I really appreciate Taylah's time and consideration. Doing interviews in a foreign land might be as challenging as playing here, but Taylah was awesome. It was a real pleasure meeting her.
As always, I thank the Chicago Bandits for their continued hospitality. I encourage everyone to check out a game and support these great athletes. Go to ChicagoBandits.com for more info.
