Bradi Wall is Iowa bound

The Southwest Booster - - SPORTS/SPECIAL OCCASIONS - > Alyssa Goyer

Swift Cur­rent’s AAA Midget In­di­ans base­ball player Bradi Wall is headed to Iowa this sum­mer on a schol­ar­ship to play soft­ball for IowaWestern Com­mu­nity Col­lege.

Wall is more than ex­cited to be head­ing down there in Au­gust. With the new school year only three months away it is not only ex­cit­ing but it is also slightly nerve rack­ing. In the end, Wall has noth­ing but good things to say.

“It’s def­i­nitely paid off fi­nally from all my years of ball. It’s ex­cit­ing and it feels like an ac­com­plish­ment.”

IowaWestern Com­mu­nity Col­lege is lo­cated in Coun­cil Bluffs, Iowa. The Col­lege was started in 1967 and is a con­tin­u­ing suc­cess. As of Au­gust of 2009, Wall will of­fi­cially be­come an IWCC Reiver (River Pi­rate).

With Wall headed off to Iowa for soft­ball she’s only slightly ner­vous about the change in sports.

“Play­ing base­ball all my life, then go­ing to Iowa hav­ing played hardly any soft­ball is nerve-rack­ing. Hope­fully I’ll be able to ad­just to the soft­ball from base­ball and see how it goes.”

How­ever play­ing base­ball for the ma­jor­ity of her life has helped her out com­pet­i­tively as well, since she is the only girl on the AAA midget team.

“It’s al­right, some­times it’s… dif­fer­ent, but it’s still fun and its great com­pe­ti­tion go­ing up against the guys… the hard pitch­ing helps me have good bat speed.”

But Wall couldn’t have got to where she is now without a lit­tle help.

“My coach Doug, my Dad, and also Harv Martinez have helped me through a lot.”
