Former Bulldog Hannah Day signs with Troy

Hannah has embraced her father's coaching.

"Having him at the games helps a lot because he is always helping me no matter what I do," she said. "During the Christmas break we are going to be out there working and getting better all the time, because you can always get better.

"He picks me apart every time I'm up to bat and every play I make. He's always videoing me. He's always correcting me, which is good, because I always need it."

The catcher is always considered the field leader on a softball or baseball team and Hannah enjoys that mental aspect of the game.

I like being vocal on the field and trying to be a leader," she said. "If you are quiet, they (the teammates) are not going to look to you for help.

"I like being out there and taking charge on the field behind the plate."

Stepping out of his role as Hannah's dad and into the role of coach, Dexter assessed her game and what she brings to the diamond.
