There's about a foot of snow on the ground in west Michigan.
Coach Hutch and the Softball Team received a NLI on Friday from Alex Sobxzak. Alex played her HS ball at Mercy High School in Farmington Hills.
Sobsczak is a catcher and bats right-handed. While a Junior at Mercy, she batted .613 with 23 extra-base hits and 35 runs batted in over the 30-game season. She has an On-Base percentage of .733 and a slugging percentage of 1.163. As a Sophmore, she hit 17 HRs (the state record is 18).
Alex plays travel ball with High-Profile Finesse Fastpitch Organization and her 18U Gold squad finished in the top-16 at the 2014 Premier Girls Fastpitch Tournament in California. Throughout her high school career, she has earned a first team All-State citation, two all-region honors, and three all-district awards. Academically, she is a member of the National Honor Society.
I had the pleasure, or dis-pleasure as it were, of playing against Alex in a Tourney a few years ago. It did not end well for me or my team. This is another 5 Star recruit and especially since she played her High School and Travel Team ball in Michigan, says a lot about her talents. Not many top-Quality Players play in the state of Michigan.
Three other players signed NLI's as well. I will profile them these in the coming days as each deserves their own "Hello:" post.
Welcome to the family Alex. Good luck in your studies and on the field.
Since, it's the bye week I felt that this thread is okay. If not, delete.
But next week, for the Maryland game, I will be making my first trip to Ann Arbor. Lately, when I travel to a new area or state, I have been trying to grab a six (or 4)-pack of the best beer from the area and bring it back home with me.
With the large amounts of drinking threads that flood this website weekly, I know that you all know your beer. So I've come here to make it easier on myself and ask for some of your help.
If I could grab one six (or 4)-pack to bring back home with me to MD, what should I get?
I don't have any preferences, anything is fine with me.
Its Friday, a bye week and the weather sucks. Im keeping it simple tonight. Samuel Adams Octoberfest. I know its November, but WTF !
What are you drinking ?
The 2-5-0, unranked Wolverines take on the American International Hornets tonight at 7:35pm at Yost.

Michigan has never faced AIC. AIC is out of the AHA and is based in Springfield, MA.
