she's only a sophomore... but the softball player might just be the future star of her team. kimt news 3 sports zach gilleland joins us with the story./// that's right guys, the byron bears have made some noise in the last couple of games. one of the reasons why for that, has been because of their young backstop. byron sophomore danielle fode might be the future of the bears. the catcher has been a force a the plate this season, batting over 400 on the year. fodáee had a torrid start, in her first three games the she had 7 hits in just ten at bats. she's helped byron to an even 7á7 record in 2019, but the team has won three of their last four games. she's just a sophomore so the bear's backstop has plenty of room to grow. she said the key to her success this year is all about the "i just stuck to the basics and did what i knew how to do and it all works out in the end and i just didn't dwell on the mistakes and kept going the best i could."
