On the Beat With Alexa Peterson of the Chicago Bandits 2017

The Chicago Bandits have clinched a playoff spot and we continue our coverage as they end their regular season and charge into the playoffs.  Today, our coverage brings us to 4th year outfielder Alexa Peterson.
Alexa had an outstanding career at the University of Oregon, where she had a .360 career batting average with 30 home runs and 153 RBI's.  As a junior, she hit .471 to win the Pac 12 batting title.  She ended her career at Oregon ranking in the top ten in hits, doubles, homers, walks, rbi's and batting average.  The USSSA Pride selected her with the 11th pick in the 2014 NPF draft.
In her rookie season, she appeared in 18 games, hitting .389 with a home run, 3 rbi's and 5 runs scored.  After the season, she was traded to the (now defunct) Pennsylvania Rebellion. She saw considerable playing time with the Rebellion and hit .248 and .256 in her two seasons there.  She also hit 4 homers and had 27 rbi's and 27 runs scored over the 2 seasons.
After the Rebellion folded, Alexa signed with the Bandits.  This season, in 25 games, she is hitting .286, with 2 homers, 6 rbi's and 9 runs scored.  She also has a stolen base and has been hit by a pitch 4 times.
As always, I appreciate the Bandits for allowing me to do what I love.  Thanks, too, to Alexa for giving us her time and consideration.
Three games and the playoffs remain in the 2017 NPF season.  Keep returning here, because we still have a few interviews to run.  Also, check for more news and info.
