MESSAGE FROM ABBY

My name is Abby Garceau, and I am a 2021 graduate at Mishicot High School in Wisconsin. I am a 5-7, 127-pound shortstop/second basemen (bat left/slap) with shortstop my primary position. I have a 3.6 GPA. As a sophomore (my junior season was canceled), I batted .449 with a .543 OBP to earn 2nd-Team All-Conference honors. My infield velocity is 59 mph. I pride myself in knowing the game and preparing for each game. While on the field, I watch players’ tendencies and communicate with my teammates, so we are ready for each play. On the offensive side, I do the same thing. I can bunt, drag bunt, soft slap, power slap and hit for power. I choose which skill to use as I read how the defense is playing me. For example, after our regional final the opposing coach came up to me and said: “You are a tough out.”  I work hard in practices and off-season opportunities, and I always look forward to when I can get on the field, which is my favorite place to be. Thank you so much for reading this and for your time. I sincerely hope our paths cross in the future.
