    Thumbs up Maggie Balint

    Pretty special talent!

    Off to a great start at Oregon. Who said those North East girls can't pitch at the D1 level?

    I'm very curious to see how the young pitching staff at Oregon fares this year. Go, Ducks!

    Funny story....sitting in the outfield with my posse when I over hear a dad talking about how fast of a pitcher his DD was. My DD was a freshman in HS at the time. I hear over and over from the dad/dads that this pitcher, Balint throws over 60. Well after 5 to 10 minutes of this I call bull crap. All they said was wait to you see her on the mound. All I can say is that our team looked like a Conga line. 1,2,3, strike out one after another. I never saw a pitcher that fast. Fastest pitcher I've ever seen in person. Never played Avon Grove HS again in my DD's remaining years. Thank God.

    Yes!!! She is awesome and absolutely love that she had "East Coast" put on her glove! I've been following her the past few years as our HS faced her twice and actually won both games - but she was completely dominant.
