Berne Union senior adapts to life, softball with disability

It’s the best sleight-of-hand trick you’ll see on a softball field, and Alanna Sanborn has it down cold.

The Berne Union senior outfielder camps under fly balls, catches them with her left hand, and in one fluid motion tucks her glove under her right arm and comes up throwing with her left. It’s a technique that Sanborn has mastered not because she’s a show-off, but because she’s had to.
