Our continuing coverage of the Chicago Bandits leads us to Emily Carosone. She is another good looking ballplayer in the very talented crop of Bandits' rookies.
Emily had a great career at Auburn, where she holds school records in single-season runs (88) and RBI (80) and second for single-season batting average (.438). She is one of two players in Auburn history to be named to multiple All-American teams. She capped off her Auburn career by being drafted by the Bandits in the fourth round of the 2016 NPF draft.
As a rookie, playing time is always hard to get, but Emily has seen a decent amount of action at second base this season (with Danielle Zymkowitz moving to right field). In limited time, she has put up some promising numbers.
In the interview, we talked about her excellent numbers at Auburn and her good start with the Bandits. Her response was ever so humble. Answers and attitudes like hers no longer surprise me from NPF players (especially the Bandits), but they are always refreshing. Clearly Emily is here to play ball and she works to continually improve her skills.
We also talked about her reaction leading up to the draft and the draft itself, as well as playing in Chicago. I think Emily will have plenty of time to get to know Chicago, as she should be here a long while.
