NORTON, MA – Members of the Wheaton College softball team recently had the opportunity to meet 2004 United States softball gold medalist Jennie Finch prior to the Brockton Rox home game on Saturday, Sept. 3.
Head coach Rachael Powers '03, senior captain Valerie Tratner (Forest Hills, NY/Saint Francis Prep), and sophomores Allison Baker (Orange, CT/Amity Regional) and Ashley Brillon (Attleboro, MA/Bishop Feehan) were in attendance to meet Finch prior to the game.
"It was a great opportunity for us," said Lyons head softball coach Rachael Powers '03. "It was very humbling for Val and I to be there to meet and talk with Jennie Finch. Aside from being an athlete, Jenny is a very down to earth, friendly person who has done so much for the game."
The Brockton Rox are an independent minor league baseball team located in Brockton, Massachusetts and managed by longtime major leaguer Bill Buckner. The Rox are a member of the Canadian American Association of Professional Baseball (CAN-AM).
