Who out there attended the Diamondbacks vs Brewers game this past weekend? If you did, you were fortunate to see "one of our own" up on the Jumbotron.
San Tan Valley resident, Emily Saults, won the National Semi-Finals at Chase Field on Sunday and is now the Arizona Diamondbacks representative for the 2012 All-Star Game. Not only was Emily announced prior to the game, her picture and the fact that she was from San Tan Valley, were on the Jumbotron for all to see. She is also soon to be mentioned on http://www.mlb.com as well.
It's been a long road, but 10 year old, San Tan Valley resident Emily Saults is hoping that her determination will take her all the way to Chase Field where she will have the honor of representing the Diamondbacks at the All-Star Game.Emily started playing baseball when she was 4 years old and enjoyed playing with her brother, Nick, who is now 14. At the age of 8, she transitioned over to softball and currently plays for the Queen Creek Heat. Although Emily's favorite position is catcher, she also plays pitcher, shortstop and third baseman.
