“THE BUZZ”:  NEW TO STING IN 2023, WE EXPECT GREAT THINGS FROM BELLA.  SHE SHOWS CONSISTENT LATERAL MOVEMENT IN THE MIDDLE INFIELD AND EXHIBITS A VERY STRONG AND ACCURATE ARM.  AT THE PLATE, SHE IS A LINE DRIVE HITTER WITH GAP POWER.  SHE RUNS BETTER THAN 3.0 HOME-TO-FIRST AND IS ALWAYS A THREAT TO BEAT OUT INFIELD HITS AND “SNEAK” BUNT.  BELLA ALSO HAS GREAT BASE STEALING ABILITY.

“SOFTBALL HAS TAUGHT ME THAT TALENT IS ONLY A SMALL PIECE OF BEING A TOP ATHLETE.  HARD WORK, DEDICATION, CONTINUOUS TRAINING AND SACRIFICES ARE THE THINGS THAT SET ATHLETES APART.  I STARTED PLAYING SOFTBALL WHEN I WAS EIGHT.  I STARTED AS A CATCHER, BECAUSE I LOVED THE ACTION AND BEING INVOLVED IN EVERY PLAY.  CATCHING WAS MY FIRST LOVE, THEN I PLAYED SHORTSTOP ON MY HIGH SCHOOL TEAM AND LOVED THAT POSITION, AS WELL.  I LOVE THE FAST PACE AND HOW AM CONSTANTLY THINKING ABOUT PLAYS.  MY TOTAL FOCUS IS ON THE GAME.  THROUGH THE YEARS, SOFTBALL HAS BECOME PART OF WHO I AM, AND I CAN’T IMAGINE NOT PLAYING.  I HOPE THAT EVENTUALLY ALL MY TRAINING AND HARD WORK WILL HELP ME ACHIEVE MY GOALS OF PLAYING IN COLLEGE AND EVENTUALLY OPENING MY OWN TRAINING FACILITY.” – ISABELLA DELADDA
