Destini has good power at the plate but is also a very good contact hitter, consistently posting high on-base percentages and striking out at a low rate.
She has excellent speed, has successfully stolen a base in 84 of 89 career attempts, and is a good baserunner. Her speed is a big asset in the outfield, where she is able to run down balls others often cannot. She has primarily been a centerfielder but has played all three outfield positions, as well as shortstop, so she brings versatility to a club’s roster.
Destini describes herself as a “team-first” player. “I put my team before my own needs and put my teammates’ accomplishments above my own. I lead not only by example but vocally when it is needed. I strive to challenge my teammates to be the absolute best they can be.”
She has youth coaching experience and would be interested in assisting a club’s coaching staff.
