Friend Encounters is a weekly series featuring friends who have met celebrities.
I met both of these folks at the Ballpark in Rosemont. Jonathan (aka Cimags) is a big fan and Jessica Warren is an excellent player,although not for the Chicago Bandits.
Jessica was a star at Florida State University.She was selected by the USSSA Pride with the seventh pick in the 2019 National Pro Fastpitch Draft.
Last year, Jessica played third base for Athletes Unlimited in their inaugural season. She hit a scorching .510 (26/51) with five homers and 15 RBIs. She is also a defensive wizard.
When I first met Cimags, he lived around here, but has since moved to Minnesota. A big autograph collector, Cimags even has a Cimags YouTube channel highlighting his efforts and some of his collection.
I keep trying to get Cimags down here for any of the AU games. Maybe this season he'll make it back down.
AU plays six games every weekend for five weeks. The season just started a couple days ago and runs through September 27. Go to AUProSports.com for more info.
