ROSEMONT, ILL. (August 14th, 2019)
Before the National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) Championship Series started former Florida State University Seminoles standout Jessie Warren became the fourth female in Golden Glove Award history to be honored by Rawlings Sports. She received the award at a pre-Series banquet in Rosemont, Illinois.
Warren spent four seasons at FSU in the infield, showing off her defensive skills since the time she stepped on campus. Her ability to cover ground and make big plays not only made her a fan favorite but also her play in the 2018 WCWS Championship game garnered her main stream media attention. She has been on everybody’s radar since that moment back in 2018, she even earned 2018 WCWS MOST OUTSTANDING PLAYER for her efforts on the diamond.
Warren has brought a lot to the Pride starting line up and it was honor to have her recognized by Rawlings for this outstanding accomplishment.
