Clan calls for Ratel
Nicole Ratel is joining the SFU Clan softball team.
Ratel, who plays backcatcher for the Fraser Valley Fusion, is expected to add offence to the Clan.
Ratel has won numerous most valuable player awards and top hitter honours at various tournaments in her career.
“Nicole’s size and athletic ability will make her an imposing figure both behind the plate and at bat,” said Clan coach Mike Renney.
“I have seen Nicole connect a few times with the result being a jog around the bases which I will look forward to seeing her do in a Clan uniform in the years to come.”
Ratel played for Great Britain’s junior™ (U19) national team at the Scotiabank Canadian Open Fastpitch Championships at Softball City.
She is in her last year of high school at Walnut Grove Secondary and will join the Clan next season.
