Reece Cammarn is an up-and-coming 2023 C/1B from South Texas. She projects well with good size and power and will surprise you in some cases. Reads runners well, commands her pitcher well and executes well overall behind the dish. She is fundamentally sound, although she works hard to hone her craft on a regular basis. Offensively, she is a 3-5 hole type hitter with occasional power and the ability to get on base and drive in runs consistently. She hit over .500 this fall with a very competitive Texas schedule. This kid had the potential to be very special as she continues to grow and get stronger.

Reece Cammarn is a versatile athlete that really understands the game. She brings several skills both offensively and defensively that allow her to stand out on the team. Offensively she is confident, reliable and disciplined. She has power to all sides of the field and comes through clutch with situational hitting. It all starts with the confidence she has when she steps in the box. She is comfortable, determined and confident to have a successful at-bat. She understands that successful at-bats come in all sorts of outcomes, as she is very well disciplined. Reece is a reliable base-hit hitter with the power to take the ball over the fence.
Defensively, Reece is the voice of the field. As a catcher she understands the importance to lead both vocally and by example. She has a quick pop time and a solid arm to throw out runners. In addition, blocking is one of her best assets when it comes to catching. Reece also has a good relationship with all her pitchers. She can tell when they are struggling, and she takes it upon herself to get them back on track. She either builds their confidence vocally or takes the time to talk and get them through it in the circle. When Reece is not catching, she is at first base. She is tall, athletic and makes for a great corner.
On and off the field, Reece is an exceptional person and teammate. She is always smiling and making sure her teammates are as well. She is outgoing and loud in the best ways. She is also successful in the classroom, as she ranks in the top 10 of her class. On the field, in the dugout and in everyday life, Reece is encouraging, hardworking and fun to be around.

MESSAGE FROM REECE
I started playing softball when I was 4 years old and began catching when I was 9. My primary position is catcher, but I’ve played 1B and 3B and am happy to play wherever my team needs me. During my freshman year, even though it was cut short, I began working at SS and started there in several games. I consider myself a pressure hitter and tend to do better under stress. My typical week consists of private hitting and catching lessons, 1-2 days of conditioning and 1-2 days of strength/weights, as well as team practices (during season). I always commit one day off for rest!
When I’m not playing softball, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and getting involved with my youth group at church. My family is very important to me, and their support is what allows me to be where I am today. I am very focused on my grades and try my best to maintain all A’s. I do a lot of homework and studying on the road! I was previously in the National Junior Honor Society and hope to be inducted in the National Honor Society in 2021. My biggest accomplishment the past year was ranking 9th in my class of 574.
