WESSON – Bailey Root, a freshman from Silsbee, Texas, earned MACJC Pitcher of the Week honors after her standout performances against Hinds and Coahoma last week. Root was 2-0 on the week with 12 innings in the circle. The freshman struck out 13 batters and gave up just one earned run on nine hits.
“I pitched really well this week, but with out my team and the work we have put in on our defense I would not have had the confidence to pitch as well as I did,” said Root. “In my eyes this is a team award because without them I wouldn’t be able to receive it.”
