02/17/2018 - Mid Atlantic Regional Softball Accelerated Pitching & Catching Weekend (Ages 13-18) Janaya joined us in mid-February for the Mid Atlantic Regional Softball Accelerated Pitching & Catching Weekend. She is a coachable player that is willing to put the time and work in to advance her skill set. On the mound, Janaya has a confident presence and with a 4-pitch package she works to generate ground ball outs for her defense. She works in the low 50's and is able to throw her off-speed pitch in the low 40's. Janaya has strong legs and working to engage her lower half will allow her to see an increase in her velocity. We look forward to seeing what the future holds for Janaya.
