Here's something interesting... At KU, Maggie played all four years with her twin sister, Rosie. The identical twins were both outfielders and were named to the Academic all-Big 12 First Team each of the final three years of their careers... Maggie also is a writer and runs her own website, "Competing for His Glory". Her site contains first-hand takes on many aspects from Maggie's life, including as a student-athlete, pro athlete, coach, wife, and Christian.
Quotable quote: "In my post-playing life, I try to commit fully and whole-heartedly to any task at hand, not letting the fear of failure paralyze me, yet embracing the process and knowing that God uses the hard times and the failures to refine me, mature me, and transform me into the woman that He created me to be."
What's she up to now? After her playing career ended following her rookie season with the Bandits, Maggie is back in Lawrence, home of the Jayhawks. Now Maggie Hull-Tietz following her marriage, she and her husband Kevin are part of the Young Life College ministry at KU. Kevin is a full-time staff member while Maggie works in a variety of roles and right now is a volunteer.
In addition to her ministry opportunities, Maggie works part-time as a TV Analyst for ESPN3.com and other networks and recently accepted the position of Director of Softball Operations for the Jayhawks softball team, a job she’ll start on June 1st of this year!
