We aren’t ever truly sure what to expect when Hau is up on the pitcher’s mound. Throughout the season, we’ve seen a lot of wild pitches, weird moments, and of course, great plays after great plays. Hau inspired her team when they needed it the most and calmed them down when things got hectic. Leadership from the mound and the third base coach’s box week after week showed why Hau became the heart of the team and one of its most important players. Needing her again, float kids looked to Hau for that extra motivation that led them to the title.
