Megan Schumacher is a senior pitcher from New York who signed with the Univ. of Missouri last fall and just finished her high school season as she led John Jay High School in East Fishkill to a 19-4 record and the Class AA Section 1 championship and ultimately to the state quarterfinals.
She also wrote about her signing with Mizzou in the article Pre-Signing Preview: New York Pitcher Megan Schumacher On Her SEC School Choice… “It Felt Like Home.”
A pitcher who throws in the mid-to-high 60’s and was on the PGF All-American Game watch list, she plays for the Birmingham Thunderbolts 18U Premier team and will be in top tournaments all summer long.
An excellent writer with helpful insights, in today’s Inside Pitch Megan talks about how important it is to make adjustments not just in softball, but in life…
I watched the Regionals, Super Regionals and Women’s College World Series like everyone else (I mean, really, who WASN’T watching and what were you doing if you weren’t?!?).
I got so excited because I can’t wait for college next year at Missouri—to be out there competing with and against the best of the best. It will be an adjustment for sure but I’m looking forward to the challenge.
Speaking of adjustments, the announcers during the playoffs talked about the adjustments the batters, pitchers, coaches and teams are making during the game.
It’s funny how softball is like a game of life.
We have to adjust to the ups and downs, highs and lows, good times and bad. I mean we will always face some adversity along the line as we grow and in life we have to adjust somehow someway.
That’s what we do in games and after games… we adjust.
