A cyclone to be Riley Fisher, Scarlet softball superstar pitcher, has been a big part of East High School’s success as they placed second place at the state championship.
“No human is perfect,” said Fisher.
Starting when she was eight, Riley has grown out of being nervous about her pitching. One thing on her mind usually before a game is food.
“The catcher and I think about food to calm our nerves before a game,” said Fisher.
As well as pitching Riley is a designated hitter. At one time her grandpa told her she was too old to become a pitcher. But Riley said, “When I was younger, I just started.”
Since Fisher has a scholarship to Iowa State University, she plans to attend ISU to major in teaching so she can use her other talents as well. Fisher would like to go to the Olympics someday, but at this time softball and baseball are not events.
“I like to see the passion other players have for their sport,” said Fisher about her enjoyment of watching other sports.
