12 Reasons Why USA Elite Select 30 Will Be Epic

1. Receive national coverage on FloSoftball.

4. Get the National Pro Fastpitch experience. Select 30 offers the opportunity to witness firsthand what it's like to play for a championship at the professional level.

6. Deck out in the sweetest gear. Easton is hooking players up with awesome stuff! Easton is providing all athletes chosen to the Select 30 Games a free Easton bat, customized Easton helmets and batting gloves, and Easton catchers gear.

Select 30 also saw Skylar Wallace (Alabama) and Cheyenne Lindsay (Florida) playing infield together.
11. Be recognized as one of the top 30 players in your graduating class. Selections of first- and second-team All Americans will be announced on the selection show.
