Bill Iezzi: Triton's Softball Smasher

Triton softball coach Pam McCabe told me this morning that the team hasn't seen much live pitching, but one player has been smashing the ball.

In the Mustangs' first two scrimmages, Brielle Reighn, a sophomore, has gone six for eight at the plate. Reighn is a starting outfielder and reserve pitcher who batted .300 last season and should improve this season.

Good batters should boost their averages this season because mounds have been moved back three feet to give hitters better looks before they swing.

Look for my story on pitchers' reactions to the new mound distance on March 30 in the South Jersey edition of The Inquirer.
