We had a great time in Portland and would like to thank the NW Bullets especially Kim Anthony, Warren Hall and of course, Dennis Muir. The City of Hillsboro and the tremendous facility at Gordon Faber softball complex, what a beautiful spot to hold our tryouts. The weather was great and the smoke had cleared away from the day before.
There were several players who caught our eye and we are excited about the talent level rising in the Northwest. Below are the players who we will be inviting to an upcoming event. If you are invited to the NorCal Jamboree and can't make it we will invite you to another Jamboree in the year to come. Congrats to these players and we look forward to seeing you soon.
While we always try to caution players and parents about reading too much into these numbers, it would be wrong to minimize them as well. These measurements, which we first introduced to the softball world 4 years ago, are becoming increasingly important to the college coaching community. There is no question in our minds that two years from now, the Allister Index will be a standardized measurement that every serious softball player in the country possesses and works to improve upon 3-4 times a year. It is becoming a major part of our Report that goes out across the country.
