Eleven-year-old pitcher Taylor Bowen is our newest WITN Pepsi Player of the Week.
Bowen is one of the few girls in the area playing baseball. She is often the only girl on her team.
She has excelled to the point of getting national attention. She will play on a national girls team that will compete at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York in late July.
Bowen will also be the first girl ever to play on the Grifton Middle School baseball team next season. She talks about this and getting to play at Cooperstown in the video link attached to the story.
