Honey Badger Softball Stats I

TrialPay’s softball team, the Honey Badgers, began our season last Wednesday.  In addition to playing, I’ve decided to make myself the team statistician.  Drawing some inspiration from the JHU physics graduate student intramural softball team, I thought it would be fun to keep a running tabulation of players’ lifetime statistics.  In order to keep it manageable and given that I’m also playing, I’ve limited myself to basic offensive and pitching statistics.
