The Kelsey Stewart Story
For Team USA superstar Kelsey Stewart, it’s been a lifetime of hard work and determination to get to this point.
In the summer of 2021, Stewart will play on the global stage in Tokyo, looking to bring home the ultimate prize. A fierce competitor who’s made a name for herself on and off the field through leading by example, she’s now ready to swing Louisville Slugger on the international stage, lead USA Softball to the top of the fastpitch world and inspire the next generation of players.
Go one-on-one with Kelsey to learn more about the infielder and her favorite moments on and off the field.
Q: What advice would you give young players?
A: I continue to think about how fun it is and know pressure is a privilege. Preparation eliminates fear. If you go hard in practice, when you get to the big moment, you’ve worked through this so there’s no fear or doubt in your mind.
Q: What is something all your teammates have in common?
A: Everyone on the team is a really good person. That’s something we pride ourselves on. Every single person on this team cares about other people more than they care about themselves.
Q: What’s your go-to walk-up song?
A: ‘Let Me Clear My Throat.’ Any time anyone hears that song I literally get Snapchats and videos. And it’s actually funny - at Florida their down in the seventh song is ‘Let Me Clear My Throat’ now.
Q: What are you doing when you’re not playing or training?
A: I love to binge watch TV shows. I’m a big movie person/moviegoer.
