Congratulations to Aleshia Ocasio

Athletes Unlimited concluded their second season on Monday. Pitcher-hitter Aleshia Ocasio is the 2021 AU Champion!

Ocasio led her Team Gold to a 2-1 record, the same as Sahvanna Jaquish and Team Purple. Amanda Chidester's Team Orange and Carrie Eberle's Team Blue went 1-2 over the weekend.

The end result left Ocasio with 2,096 points to take the title. Chidester finished with 1,714, Kelsey Stewart with 1,612 and Eberle 1,592. In fifth was last year's champ Cat Osterman with 1,586. Osterman had a big jump from 13th place the previous week (but more on that in tomorrow's feature on Osterman on Global Women's Sports Radio).

Shortstop Anissa Urtez was named the 2021 Geico Defensive Player of the Year. Pitcher Eberle was named the 2021 Rookie of the Year.

Congrats to Ocasio, the other award winners and all of the athletes. Thank you to AU for access and hospitality all season. We look forward to AU Softball 2022!
Aleshia Ocasio and me in Rosemont, IL-Summer 2018.
