Portia McBride was a big reason why Elizabeth Forward reached the WPIAL Class AAA final last season.
McBride was the starting pitcher for the Warriors and she handled a bulk of the innings for coach Harry Rutherford’s squad. But someone would bat for McBride last season.
That is something that McBride wanted to change this season. In the winter she went to Rutherford and asked what she needed to do to not only help her team with her arm but also with her bat.
