Personal

Jade is primarily a second baseman but can also play shortstop and third base. She played both second base and shortstop during her collegiate career. She is good defensively, with quick hands and feet.

At the plate, she can hit for average and get on base consistently. She has reasonably good speed, so she can take the extra base as the opportunity arises.

Having completed her college career, Jade is working out regularly to stay in top condition, and she’s training to keep her skills sharp.
