Anai Winings recorded her 400th career strikeout on Friday, April 22!
She grew up watching her brother play baseball which sparked her interest in softball, and has played since she was five years old.
"I love pitching because of the control and adrenaline I feel every time the ball is in my hand," she said. "I feel ecstatic and very proud of myself for hitting my 400th strikeout."
Before every game, she ties her shoe laces as tight as possible and considers it her pre-game ritual.
The best advice she's received? To never show her emotions on the mound. "It has gained me respect from my peers and coaches," she said.
Anai also participates in Ursuline's One Love Club and Pink Ladies Club.
