On the Beat With the Chicago Bandits 2018 (Interviews Part 2)

The Chicago Bandits hit a bit of a bump in the form of the USSSA Pride. The Bandits have lost 5 of the 6 games with the Pride this season. The Pride is now in 1st place at 18-1, while the Bandits at 19-5 are in 2nd place.
The losses to the Pride hurt a bit, but as expected, this NPF season is shaping up to be a 2 team race. In 3rd place are the Beijing Eagles at 11-16, followed by the Cleveland Comets at 7-18 and the Aussie Spirit at 9-24.
I wrote a more detailed piece on the Patch.com at On the Beat With the Chicago Bandits. (Yes, it is a very creative title.)
Thanks to the hospitality of the Bandits and the assistance from Media Relations Director Jason Lowenthal, I was able to interview 3 Bandits last weekend. Rookie shortstop Delaney Spaulding, rookie outfielder Jessie Scroggins and 1st baseman Megan Blank gave me their thoughts on a variety of topics. Ace fan Kenzie Parker also supplied a couple questions for Megan.
It's always fun for me to learn more about the great athletes of the Bandits. Whether I ask about game specific things, overall experiences, silly topics or anything else, the women always provide thoughtful answers. I enjoy getting some fun info from the women and I hope Bandit Nation enjoys it, too.
