Friend Encounters is a weekly series featuring friends meeting celebrities.
When Tony Feddeler and I attended Athletes Unlimited softball games last season, Megan Wiggins was one of our top targets to meet again. A former player for the now defunct National Pro Fastpitch Chicago Bandits, Wiggins remains a favorite here many years after she was traded to the USSSA Pride. While her playing for AU in Rosemont isn't exactly a homecoming, it is still awesome seeing her play here every game of the season.
I don't know if Wiggins will return for another season with AU, but we hope so. Tony and I are now season-ticket holders and we really want to "get Wiggy with it" again.
Go to AUProSports.com for more info on all of the AU sports leagues. In addition to softball, they have volleyball, lacrosse and basketball. AU SB 2023 returns to Rosemont, Illinois in August.
