Where Are They Now: Leanna Pittsenbarger

Who is she? Leanna Pittsenbarger, a former pitcher for the Eastern Kentucky Colonels.

What is she known for? Pittsenbarger garnered national attention in 2014 during a season that saw her set a trio of program records, including for strikeouts with 297, as well as lead the Ohio Valley Conference in another trio of statistical categories. For her efforts, Pittsenbarger was named an all-conference first-team selection and received a nod to the all-region team.

Here's something interesting... Leanna's dad Aaron was a collegiate athlete himself, playing golf for Urbana University in Ohio.

Quotable quote: "Enjoy everything, even if you don't want to do it in the moment. Enjoy the 6:00 am weights and enjoy the conditioning. Don't take for granted the four-hour practices and the late nights after a long bus ride, finishing homework in the hotel room. It goes so fast, and nothing else in your adult life can take the place of being a student-athlete."

What's she up to now? After receiving her degree in psychology, Leanna is now enrolled in Wright State's School of Professional Psychology, a five-year program. She also co-owns a business called The Field House in Dayton, Ohio, where she and a partner team up to offer both pitching, catching, and offensive lessons.
