|Natasha Jacob: Thanks for joining me today. I look forward to answering your questions!|
|Lena (Tallahassee): What do you look forward to the most during softball season?|
|Natasha Jacob: I look forward to our trip to California the most.|
|Tif (Belfair): How great does Tiffany McDonald’s hair look from left field?|
|Natasha Jacob: Well, it’s kind of hard to see because of the glare from the sun. I had to get darker sunglasses this year!|
|Neal (Oak Harbor): Can boys play fastpitch softball?|
|Natasha Jacob: There is a men’s fastpitch softball league.|
|Dustin (Spokane): I’m dating Tiffany, but would dump her if you would go on a date with me!|
|Natasha Jacob: If I say yes, we just can’t tell Tiff. It will have to be a secret!|
|Chris (New Orleans/Tallahassee): Natasha, congratulations on your 28 game hit streak! The new streak starts Friday! 🙂|
Is there any particular game on the schedule you are most looking forward to, or is there any particular team you are most looking forward to facing?
|Natasha Jacob: Thank you! I am really looking forward to playing Michigan on our home field. I always love going to the NFCA Classic and the KIA in California.|
|Bethany (Kansas): I was wondering if you liked wearing your facemask? My dad is pressuring me into wearing one and it really gets in my way|
|Natasha Jacob: I actually started wearing my facemask because my dad wanted me to as well. At first it felt a little awkward, but once you get used to it, you don’t even realize it is there.|
|Lisa (Jacksonville): Since you’re from Texas, do your parents get to see you play very often?|
|Natasha Jacob: My parents actually just moved to Georgia, so now they are even closer to me. They have always been very supportive and are able to make a lot of my games.|
|Dave (Live Oak): My daughter plays softball in junior high. Besides playing on the high school team, what can she do if she wants to play softball in college?|
|Natasha Jacob: I think it is very important to become a part of a summer travel team. Most college recruiting is done at big showcase tournaments.|
|Cindy (Dallas): How did you get started in softball?|
|Natasha Jacob: I started playing when I was eight. My dad was actually the coach of an 8-under team so he signed me up.|
|Tina (Jacksonville): What’s with all the cheers softball players do during the game? Do they distract you when you’re up to bat?|
|Natasha Jacob: I usually can’t hear anything when I am up to bat. I have noticed that when I am able to hear the cheers in the dugout, I am not as focused as I should be.|
|Bob (Clarion): What are you thinking about when you go up to the plate?|
|Natasha Jacob: I usually check the defense to determine what I am going to do, whether that is bunting, slapping, or hitting.|
|Katy, Tx.: How did it feel to have the Nation’s longest hitting streak?|
|Natasha Jacob: Well, last year I noticed that I wasn’t thinking about it much. It was almost as if I was in a groove. Coming into this season, I felt a little more pressure, knowing that I had a hitting streak riding on my shoulders.|
|Chris (New Orleans/Tallahassee): What were you saying to the umpire yesterday in the second game before you came up to bat in the third inning?|
|Natasha Jacob: He was asking me if I thought I went on the third strike of my previous at bat.|
|Nancy (Grove City): What do you like to do away from softball?|
|Natasha Jacob: I like to hang out with friends, go out to eat, collect stamps, watch movies, and I was watching the dog show last night so I’m thinking about starting a dog breeding business on the side.|
|Brandy (Tallahassee): You’re such a good student and softball player. How do you balance the time to do both so well?|
|Natasha Jacob: It takes a lot of discipline balancing academics and athletics, but we have an amazing acadmic support staffe here at FSU. I have definitely learned a lot about time management while I have been at school.|
|Natasha Jacob: Thanks for all your questions. Come out and see us play this year. We really appreciate your support! Go Noles!|
