THE BUZZSIMPLY ONE OF THE BEST HITTERS/INFIELDERS/PITCHERS IN NEW ENGLAND.  AT THE PLATE MacKENZIE CAN SOFT-SLAP, SNEAK BUNT, SLAP OR HIT LINE DRIVES IN EITHER GAP AND CAN FLAT OUT LAUNCH THE BALL OVER THE FENCE.  AT 2.9 FROM THE LEFT SIDE, ANY GROUND BALL SHE HITS IN THE INFIELD IS LIKELY TO BE A HIT.  SHE IS ALWAYS ABLE TO GET THE BALL IN PLAY, IN 2019, SHE AMAZINGLY, STUCK OUT ONLY TWICE IN 178 PLATE APPEARANCES.  SHE BATTED LEAD OFF IN ALL GAMES, SPORTING A BATTING AVERAGE OF .469, AN OBP OF .579 AND A SLUGGING AVERAGE OF .700.  IN THE INFIELD, SHE MAKES EVERY HARD CHANCE LOOK EASY.  SHE HAS TREMENDOUS RANGE GOING TO HER BACKHAND OR GLOVE SIDE.  EVERY THROW TO FIRST IS QUICK AND ACCURATE.  HER ABILITY TO CATCH AND TAG AT SECOND BASE IS SECOND TO NONE.

IN THE CIRCLE, SHE IS VERY ACCURATE WITH A DIVERSE ARRAY OF PITCHES, FEATURING A FAST BALL AT CLOSE TO 60 MPH, A NASTY CHANGE UP, SWEEPING CURVE BALL AND SCREW BALL, AS WELL AS A RISE AND DROP.

MacKENZIE IS STILL EVALUATING WHETHER HER EMPHASIS WILL BE AT SHORTSTOP OR IN THE CIRCLE.  SHE IS TOTALLY DEDICATED TO BOTH DISCIPLINES AND WILL CONTINUE IN BOTH CAPACITIES AT STING.  SHE IS AN AMAZING TEAMMATE AND LEADER WITH TOTAL FOCUS.  IN THE FUTURE, SHE WILL BE AN ASSET TO ANY TEAM AT ANY LEVEL
