My DD also was recruited as an outfielder and she also received a great offer. She is a lead off hitter and speed is her bread and butter. I agree, pitchers and catchers are the first recruited but there is money for the exceptional out fielder. My DD loves the outfield and plays it with pride. Caitlin Lowe is my DD's role model. Now there is an athlete! You can't "hide" bad players in the outfield at the higher levels.
