HANOVERTON OH- You never know when you’ll come across an athlete that will live on the lore of their program forever. The athletes that make such a big impact on the team, that they’ll be talked about for years to come. United softball has had the pleasure of being the home of Tori Firth. After having a stellar junior season, the Eagles ace ran through her senior year and took the next step into legendary status. After the season she had in 2023, Firth has permanently solidified herself inside the record books at United. Her career hasn’t come with out adversity. COVID took away Tori’s freshman season, and a shoulder surgery made getting back to 100% a long process. She was not going to be denied though. She used her drive to get back in the circle and become one of the best players to come through United softball.
Firth has collected both regular season, and career records this season. She has the season record for home runs with 10, and RBI with 47. When you add to that her career records of 24 home runs, 120 RBI, and a career batting average of .550. Tori has a career ERA of 2.10 and 504 strikeouts in her career in the circle. While the pitching stats may not be program records, when you combine them with her work at the dish, it’s easy to see why she’s so decorated.
Tori took the time to talk with YSN’s Anthony Hartwig to recap her career at United. She discusses the adversity she has faced, how special United has been to her, and much more. Check out the latest United softball player profile exclusively on YSN!
