GSPN- Give us a little background on how you started playing in baseball and softball.

TF- I started playing baseball when I was 9. I went to watch my cousin’s baseball game and I saw a girl playing. I wanted to try it out. I never knew girls could play baseball, until I saw that girl playing. So I tried it out and I ended up playing baseball. I started playing softball when I was 15. My mom motivated me to play something new and also to try playing a sport with girls. So I played and now I love playing it!

GSPN- Is this your first year playing for Southern Baseball?

TF- Yes this is my first year playing for Southern Baseball. I’m starting 2nd base with the boys.

GSPN- Third time was a charm for the Dolphins versus JFK. Do you feel Southern has the team to win the baseball title this year.

TF- Yes we do have the team and talent, we just have to work together.

GSPN- Your other sport is softball. The Lady Dolphins have a dynasty with four straight titles. What has been the key to the team’s success?

TF- The key we have is working together and communication with the coaches.

GSPN- What are your goals for your senior year?

TF- My goals for my senior year is ending my senior year with the championship title!

GSPN- Do you aspire to play collegiate softball?

TF- Yes I want to play college softball and that’s my plan after high school.

GSPN-Where do you see yourself in five years?

TF- In five years, I see myself teaching softball to the girls that want to learn it.

GSPN- Anyone you want to thank for your success?

TF- I would like thank my family for always supporting me. But most especially to my dad because without him pushing me to work harder and harder each day, I wouldn’t be where I am today. So I thank him a lot. My dad Patrick Fejeran & my mom Bernie Fejeran for always taking me to my games.
