HockomockSports.com has posted their listing of the Ten Players to Watch for 2022 for Softball. We shared the info on Julia White of FHS and provide the link to the full listing.
JULIA WHITE, SENIOR – FRANKLIN
Franklin showed flashes last season of being able to make a postseason run, splitting games with both Attleboro and Mansfield, and fighting back in a remarkable 16-14 win over Oliver Ames, but the Panthers will be looking for a little more consistency this year. Having White fully healthy will be a big step forward. The senior second baseman battled a hand injury all last year but she is ready from the start this spring and gives Franklin a solid defensive player in the middle infield and also a run creator at the top of the order.
A solid hitter to all fields, White is also a threat on the base paths, taking extra bases and getting into scoring position for the middle of the lineup. White getting on base more this season and causing havoc will be a big boost for the Franklin offense. The league is, as usual, loaded and as deep as ever, so for the Panthers to get back into the state tournament mix they’ll need White’s leadership both in the field and at the plate.
