“Cancer is very close to my heart being that my mother is a 9 year breast cancer survivor and my aunt is currently battling breast cancer. Coach Torina’s mother battled ovarian cancer and the teal walk is very important not only to me but to the entire Baton Rouge community. Baton Rouge has given me so much and is truly my home away from home and everyone there that has supported me and softball has become family. I want to make sure that the young women in the community that means so much to me are aware of the signs of these cancers that can one day save their life or someone that they love.” – AJ Andrews
