Last week, 1D0D announced that they had signed a major star. Having just announced Hoagland's bat auction to benefit Alzheimer's, I, for one, was incredibly intrigued to see how they would continue the week of big announcements and who the player would be. It came down on Monday that they've signed their 2nd international star and Team USA gold medalist in RHEA TAYLOR.
With Hoagland and Taylor as the first two members of 1D0D's softball representation class, they're off to a solid start! From the press release announcing Taylor's contract:
"Reno, NV, September 9, 2013 – One Dream Zero Distraction LLC (1D:0D), welcomes its newest client and second client in the Softball Division. Rhea Taylor, OF, USA Softball, and member of the 2012 NPF's Chicago Bandits, signed over the weekend.
"One thing I really like about 1D:0D, is the dedication they show to their clients. They were present at every World Cup game and were tracking every game in Canada and Puerto Rico. I am also very impressed with how 1D:0D continues to strive to promote women’s athletics,” said Taylor.
Taylor completed the 2013 international season with gold in San Juan as the USA qualified for the 2014 ISF World Championships and the 2015 Pan American Games.
“Since Rhea’s career ended at Mizzou, I hadn’t had a chance to see her play. Once, the roster was released for USA Softball this season, it was great seeing her listed, knowing I’d be at the World Cup and have the chance to once again see her on the field,” said Jarrod Rogol, President, 1D:0D."
If 1D0D keeps up this pace, they'll quickly establish themselves as the sport's foremost agents. Following Hoagland's lead, don't be surprised to see Taylor become a household name in the softball community.
