Brownstown Central senior excels in softball, volleyball

Arv Koontz, For The Tribune/ Brownstown Central senior Hallie Wessel swings for a hit during the April 15 softball game at Seymour.


Second base feels like home to Brownstown Central High School softball player Hallie Wessel.

“I’ve played second base since I started softball,” she said.

Wessel said you always have to watch the batter to decide what to do on defense when the ball is hit.

“If there is a left-handed batter, normally they slap, so you have to move up toward the pitcher’s mound and get the bunt because the first baseman stays back,” she said. “But if there is a right-handed batter, I just stay back; and if she bunts, I go to first and the first baseman gets the ball. We have verbal signals on defense, and everybody should know where to go.”
