The cruelest month for a softball catcher is July. The weather is in the 90s and the catchers are all geared up with equipment to cover the aches, pains and bruises they’ve endured over the season. All this while the importance of the games are at their height. You would have never heard about all the negatives from Julia Mayernik and Alex Haley or seen them in their play. They’ve always come back for more, no matter how many games they’ve caught in a weekend … or a season. July can be cruel, but August brought fortune for Mayernik and Haley as they became teammates on Jersey Outlaws Premier. The coaching staff is thrilled because it can rely on both Class of 2020 prospects for exceptional leadership and skills behind the plate. How important is a quality catcher to a team? The answer comes in a team that doesn’t one. The Outlaws have a pair.
