There is a nice piece in the Detroit News about freshman shortstop Sierra Romero. Good feelings all around, with Romero coming off as likeable and Hutch having nothing but great praise, including this bit I hope can apply to Burke and Co in Atlanta tonight:
She's just flourishing here. She's really confident. She's had some bad games -- I think she had four or five errors in a game -- but it doesn't faze her because she knows she's good. She comes from a quality family. She's respectful, humble. She has the greatest combination of swag, confidence, but I wouldn't call it cocky. She's just a real confident kid.
In addition, the piece compiles some of her very impressive statistics from her freshman year. M Softball will be lucky to have her for her college career, which is already pretty remarkable half a season in. Also, in other feel-good type things, the first comment on the piece is from her mother, via Facebook.
