In my continuing effort to help fill my softball void, I am featuring another interesting player from National Pro Fastpitch. Megan Wiggins creates excitement on the field and beautiful work off the field.
Megan starred at the University of Georgia, becoming the first SEC player and just the 11th SEC player to reach 200 career runs and RBIs finishing her four years with 203 runs and 203 RBIs. She joined the Chicago Bandits in 2011.After four seasons with the Bandits, she was traded to the USSSA Pride. No matter the jersey, Megan was a star.
It's been such a pleasure watching Megan, even when the Pride was beating the Bandits. When you watch the truly great players, it goes beyond team loyalty. Of course, I always want to see the Bandits win, but I can appreciate Megan's abilities and accomplishments.
As talented as Megan is on the field, she has a unique skill set away from the softball diamond. Megan does beautiful antique work. Her restorations are amazing. She is a true artist.
I did two interviews with Megan over the years. The first was in 2014, my first year covering the Bandits. The second was last year and it was more about her Two Five Refined business.
My first interview with Megan can be found at On the Beat With Megan Wiggins of the Chicago Bandits. Last year's interview is at On the Beat With Megan Wiggins of the USSSA Pride.
Go to ChicagoBandits.com for more info on the team. Also, be sure to check out Megan Wiggins on Instagram for softball and Two Five Refined updates.
