As the 2016 season opener for the Chicago Bandits draws closer, I am featuring some of the Bandits here. This is just the beginning of my coverage of the 2016 Bandits.
An alum of the University of Kentucky, Brittany Cervantes is entering her fifth season with the Bandits. She first joined the Bandits after an open tryout. The star first baseman has improved every season. Last season, she batted .358 with 9 home runs and 23 rbi's. She was the NPF Offensive Player of the Year.
Brittany also was the first Bandit I ever interviewed. That interview occurred after a victory and can be found at On the Beat With Brittany Cervantes. I'll always have a special place for Brittany because of that. I was a bit nervous and excited to start a new coverage. I enjoyed the interview so much and really felt Brittany's excitement. I remember driving home looking forward to coming back. I was pretty much hooked from that game and it all started with #22 Brittany.
I hope to see everyone out at the ballpark this season. Check out ChicagoBandits.com for ticket info and updates. Also, stay tuned right here for regular coverage.
