"Very competitive, probably one of the most competitive girls I've been around, likes to play hard, and I suppose that's what carries over to her schooling, being a 4.0 student. Just a great all-around kid," says Montana Avalanche Todd White of his outfielder Bailey Deyle.
An All-Around good kid, and a person her teammates say is the best communicator on the field.
"Talking is really important on our team, and I am always talking, the girls always say I don't usually shut up, and you can hear me all the
way from the outfield. I like to be in the game, even though I'm out in the outfield, and Morgan (Ray) is pitching great and I'm not seeing many
balls hit to me, I'm still yelling for her, and yelling at Dani (Walker), talking to the rest of the outfield, it's just how I am," says Deyle
A 4.0 GPA, and a cheerful disposition make her teammates thankful Bailey is on the team.
"It's nice. She's smart on and off the field, so she's someone you want to be around. She makes good choices on and off the field, and
she's intelligent, so hopefully some of it rubs off," chuckles Avalanche Catcher Dani Walker.
But it's not just playing softball and making the high school honor roll. She also spends plenty of time giving back to the community.
"I help coach my younger sister whose on the 12U Avalanche team, and my dad is also coaching that, so I help with them, we did the camp for
Avalanche I helped coach, and around the classroom I help out with younger kids and that sort of stuff," says Deyle.
A standout in softball, the classroom, and the community, she's also developed quite the nickname from her Avalanche teammates.
"We call her 'Mama Bailey'. She's always looking out for every one of us, and she's just one of the best girls out there, she's awesome," says Avalanche pitcher Morgan Ray.
"I think it fits. I'm always the one that has the sun screen and the granola bars, I'm offering to bring water, so I think 'Mama Bailey' actually works. I'm always taking care of the girls making sure they don't get burnt and are ready to play. I might be in the middle of the age group, as I'm not the oldest, but I'm about to be a senior, so I step up and take care of my girls, I like to be sort of in charge, but also make sure my teammates are ready to go," concedes Deyle.
