        Susan: Why did you get into baseball and not softball?

          Sophia: I watched my older brother, Jared, play and it looked like a lot of fun. The softball looked too big; I never wanted to play with the girls.

            Susan: How do the boys treat you on the field?

              Sophia: My teammates treat me like one of the guys. I don't think about being a girl on a boys' team. I just love to play.

                Susan: What is your favorite part of the game?

                  Sophia: Striking out other players and getting hits.

                    Susan: Do you want to play in high school?

                      Sophia: It would be fun to play in high school; I would love to be the first girl to play in the big leagues.

                        Susan: How did you get the nickname "Syclone?

                          Sophia: My dad starting calling me that because he said I was full of energy like a cyclone, but with an "S" for Sophia.

                            "Sophia's unshakable approach to baseball not only makes her a fierce competitor, but is the foundation for the Brea Little League Indians. Whenever we are in a tough spot, Sophia pulls through for her team” said Chad Guss team manager.

                              We look forward to seeing Sophia as the first girl in Major league Baseball.
