On the Beat with Tammy Williams of the Chicago Bandits

The Johngy's Beat-Justin's World joint coverage of the Chicago Bandits resumed with Justin's piece on Tammy Williams.  I talked to Tammy a couple weeks ago and that interview can be found at Tammy Williams interview.
Tammy, the fifth year shortstop is certainly one of the leaders on the team and one of the best players in the league.  She hit .341 with an OBP of just under .400, 9 home runs, 30 rbi's and 27 runs scored.  Overall, it was her best season of her career.
I had the pleasure of witnessing Tammy start a rare triple play a couple weeks ago.  She snared a low liner to her left.  A flip to second and a relay to first put the triple play in the books.  It was the first triple play I ever saw on any level.
The Bandits start the playoffs today and I will be watching and cheering.  I really grew to love this team and the sport.  Stay tuned for continuing coverage soon.
