Darton softball coach retains spot on USA fast-pitch squad

May 31, 2007

Albany - Darton College softball coach Blake Miller is still one of top men's fast pitch players in the nation.  

Miller proved that this week by making the United States national softball team for a fifth time.

The USA team will play a tournament in the Czech Republic in late June and return to the United States for a world cup tournament tournament in Oklahoma City in July.

The USA national team is chosen every year and Miller hopes to be on the squad for two more years so he can play in the World Championships in 2009.

Miller says there is nothing better than to win a championship playing for your country.

Blake Miller said "You finally look at the people that are getting that gold medal on the stand and you realize this is what you play for. Your teammates and everything that you are behind."

Before leaving for Europe, Blake Miller will hold a softball camp for players 12 and older on June 15-16 and a camp for players 11 and younger on June 22-23.
