And Monday, Oct. 8,the city of Eastman will honor her with a reception at 6:30 at Eastman city hall, and the whole community is invited.
Pritchett said she was truly overwhelmed, and humbled by all the attention, and said, "I look at all of this kind of like, well, the American Red Heads are like a ferris wheel, and each one of us is the bucket, you know, we all have a part in what has been going on."
"I really don't know why I was picked by the coaches to play on the team ... I didn't start playing ball until high school, and I really didn't think I was that good ... I have asked many times, why me? And God just really changed that for me, and was like, why not you?
