NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 12, 2019) – USSSA Pride veteran utility player, Alexa Peterson, and The Hitting Vault (THV), have partnered through an On Player Ad Location (OPAL) for the 2019 National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) season.
Peterson returns to the USSSA Pride in 2019 for her sixth season as a pro in the NPF. Originally the 11th overall pick in the NPF College Draft by the Pride, Peterson had stints with the Pennsylvania Rebellion, Chicago Bandits, and Cleveland Comets before returning to USSSA this season.
A 2014 graduate of Oregon, Peterson was a member of two Women’s College World Series participating teams and was a decorated First Team All American, First Team All-PAC 12, PAC 12 Batting champion and a member of the All World Series Team.
“I’m so excited and honored to be able to represent The Hitting Vault this summer in the NPF through the OPAL program,” commented Peterson. “THV’s mission is to grow the game of softball and baseball while truly caring about each client’s success, and helping them reach their potential and I am happy to be a part of that.”
THV is an elite hitting program taught by professional hitting coach, Matt Lisle, with Aaron James as its President.
“Alexa Peterson represents everything The Hitting Vault stands for – hard work, dedication, teamwork and a willingness to learn and grow,” said James. “As the number one online hitting community, we are proud to support Alexa and 1000’s of others who play, coach and love the game of softball.”
