Bethany has a tremendous amount of ability and is projected to dominate in the pitching circle. Bethany throws extremely hard which is complimented by a killer change up. She has added a few more pitches to her arsenal this year that will keep the batters off balance. Last year, Bethany showed she has what it takes to be the best, and she will continue to do so in the 2009 season. In addition to her time in the circle, Bethany may see some time in the outfield.
