Justin's World of Softball announces the addition of former All-American pitcher Kristina Thorson to the site’s group of analysts. Thorson will serve as an analyst and contributor to the site’s coverage of the 2017 season, as well as provide commentary for the new JWOS podcast.
"We set out this fall to find an analyst who had a deep knowledge of the game; great experience to draw from; and who would make a valuable addition to our team. With Thor, we went three for three. I think we have hit it out of the park with this hire and I'm excited to see all that she brings to the table to put on display for our followers," shares JWOS founder Justin McLeod.
Thorson was a three-time all-American at Cal and is widely considered one of the best players in the storied program's history. She went on to a fine career in the National Pro Fastpitch league that included stints with the Philadelphia Force; Chicago Bandits; and Akron Racers. She retired from the NPF in 2012.
"When I played, I always enjoyed talking with JWOS because of their professionalism and they always asked very thoughtful questions," Thorson said. “I'm very excited to be a part of this team and to be able to talk college softball!"
