My name is Kaitlyn McBride and I was a Blazer for the majority of my softball career. I played for the Blazers for 8 years. I came to play for Brampton during my first year of squirt, and I finished my career as a Midget Blazer. I was coached by Judy McBride and Dan Pappano my entire Blazer career. The Blazer’s brought me a lot of success. I medaled in 7 Provincials which included 2 Provincial Gold medals, won an Eastern Canadian Championship, a USA World Series title and 2 National Gold Medals. After leaving the Blazers I went on to play collage softball at Saginaw Valley State University in Saginaw, Michigan. SVSU is where I earned my degree in Elementary Special Education. I am currently a teacher, but also an active member within the BGSA. I am an umpire and a coach. I have always loved the game I will be forever grateful for the opportunities the BGSA and softball provided me.
