Reese Michaels is a developing 2024 lefty pitcher from TN. She plays her select ball with the USSSA Pride-NY. She’s tossing 53-55 and will only get stronger and faster as she grows and develops. She shows good command and control and works her spots well. Offensively, she’s a 1-2 hole hitter with sub-3.0 speed and developing into a legit triple threat. Reese shows strong leadership qualities with tons of intangibles to boot. Hard-working, driven and dedicated to help make her an asset on any roster. She’s going to be special!

MESSAGE FROM REESE
I’m Reese Michaels, part of the 2024 class at Cosby High School in Newport, TN. I have played the game I love for about seven years now. As a seventh grader in 2018-19, I played on the freshman softball team for Colonie Central High School (Albany, NY) primarily as a pitcher, and also as a first baseman and outfielder.
This spring school season, I am starting on varsity as a pitcher, center fielder and first baseman. I also play travel ball for the Stars National Darnell at the same positions. I’m a lefty pitcher with a fastball averaging 54 mph, while I have a great change-up and drop ball. Offensively, I have batted lead-off for the last four years. Last year (2020) my batting average was .500. I love to hit line drives and hard-hit balls in the gaps. I play wherever I am needed for my team to succeed, learn and grow.
Academics are also very important to me. I work in the classroom just as hard as I work on the field. I have consistently been on the Honor Roll, including as a freshman (2020-21) where my GPA currently sits at 3.6. Last year I completed 8th grade receiving the Most Distinguished Award, Leadership Award and The Constant Award. I work very hard to stay on top of my studies, keep myself in shape and continue to develop. I am a firm believer that hard work and dedication pays off.
On the field, you will see my positive attitude, passion for the game, and my funny sense of humor too! I would love to see and talk with you at our games. I’d love to continue my growth and ability at the collegiate level. Thank you for taking the time to consider me as a viable prospect for your program. I appreciate your time in checking out my profile.
