The Kansas City Tryout turned out to be quite a success this year. We want to thank Shelly Rampestreiter and her wonderful daughter, Lexi, for all their help. Lexi is an OnDeck girl, will begin her career with Mizzou this fall. We clearly remember little Lexi showing up for one of our earlier events. From the start, we were impressed with her enthusiasm and energy. She continued to work, and now her dreams are on the verge of coming true. We are truly excited for her and will look forward to following her career in the years ahead.
We had some impressive performances – highlighted by the play of 2019 pitcher Alana Vawter. Alana is going to be one of the Midwest’s premier pitching prospects in her class. She is tall and athletic, and she can just play the game. We also were impressed by two eighth graders – middle infielder Ava Bieneman and pitcher Kara Amos. Ava is going to be a player as she matures, she has a wonderful skill set and great instincts for the game. Kara has outstanding control and command of her pitches. Both will be major players in their class before it is all said and done.
As with all our Tryouts, we want to remind both parents and players that the recruiting process is a journey that unfolds differently for every player. Be patient and let the process work and a good decision will ultimately be made.

Please remember that the ODM numbers, while growing increasingly important, are only a snapshot of a player’s evaluation and potential. They are also just a portion of the Tryout selection process, for more information read Your Tryout & ODM Numbers. Use these numbers as a tool and work at developing your athleticism, but constantly work on improving and refining your softball skill set – both offensively and defensively.
