    Angel Rice is a senior softball player for the Spartans. The second baseman currently holds the team's second-best batting average and ranks second on defensive assists as well. In the classroom, the Brunswick, Ohio native is majoring in accounting.

    Greg Meyer: What are some of your hobbies beside playing softball and basketball for Case?

    Angel Rice: Playing sports, sports, and more sports.

    GM: I bet you watch a lot of Sports Center. What inspired you to play softball?

    AR: Always playing baseball with my brother in the neighborhood.

    GM: Who is your favorite athlete?

    AR: LeBron James.

    GM: If he doesn't win the MVP and the league championship this year, it won't happen. What is your best sports memory?

    AR: Hitting my first career homerun over the fence this year.

    GM: Dropping bombs, very nice. What is your worst sports memory?

    AR: Sitting out my freshman basketball season and part of softball season because of shattering my collarbone.

    GM: Not a great way to start a career. What is your favorite quote?

    AR: "Nothing worth having ever comes easy so see to it that you believe in you and you'll make it through."

    GM: Very inspiring. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

    AR: Working as a successful tax accountant and hopefully coaching somewhere.

    GM: If coaching doesn't pan out you could put that accounting degree to work as a stats keeper. What makes softball stand out from other sports?

    AR: It's one of the only sports where you can fail seven out of 10 times and still be considered a great player.

    GM: Standard baseball or softball answer. You guys need some new material. If you could invite any three people to dinner, living or dead, who would it be and why?

    AR: Pat Summit- I think she is an incredible coach and has accomplished unsurpassed things in her career. Missy Higgins- her song writing ability is amazing. Ellen DeGeneres- I think she is hysterical and I'm always laughing when I watch her TV show.

    GM: Pat Summit could possibly the best coach in any sport. Not to mention her Kenny Mayne commercial is pretty funny. Would you rather have the strength of 1000 women, be able to fly, or be invisible?

    AR: I would like to be invisible because I'd love to be "that fly on the wall" and be able to disappear whenever I wanted.

    GM: What's your least favorite thing about softball?
