Softball star Maddy Grimm nabs first-team all-league honors

moh-BEEL! USA infielder Maddy Grimm, a Stahlstown native, leads the American Softball Association with 11 home runs.

After leading her moh-BEEL!USA team to a championship this season, Maddy Grimm was recognized with a postseason accolade in the American Softball Association.

The burgeoning, four-team professional league announced its all-ASBA players and Grimm was a clear first-team selection.

A third baseman who hails from Ligonier Valley and Kent State, Grimm is in the running for league MVP honors, which will be announced on Aug. 13.

Grimm hit .424 and led the ASBA in home runs (19), total bases (100), hits (36) and runs (30). She drove in 45 in 25 games for moh-BEEL!USA (19-7).

Last year, Grimm was a first-team pick as a designated hitter. She was an assistant coach at Pitt last year.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
