Bio

Submitted by the organization:

Michigan Finesse began as a youth slow pitch program in 1986 but around 28 years ago transitioned to fastpitch.  Since then, hundreds of young ladies have been part of the Wixom, Michigan-based organization.

This year’s Finesse 18U-Rex team looks to continue their organization’s momentum into 2019 with a combination of strong pitching, power hitting and speed on the base-paths.  The roster contains girls from Southern Michigan, the Upper Peninsula and Northwest Ohio.  Many of the players were members of the 2017 JO Cup 16U National Champions or 2017 ASA 14U National Runners-Up.

Finesse 18U-Rex is looking forward to a successful Summer and excited to show that there is an abundance softball talent in the North, not just the South and West.
