Promise Barragan fell in love with softball during the 1996 Summer Olympics, when Team USA's Lisa Fernandez and Dot Richardson led the national softball team to the gold medal. Since then she has been hooked on the sport, participating in multiple youth club teams. She attended Bishop Amat High School on an academic scholarship, and played for the softball team. There she lettered 3 years and served as the starting pitcher for two years. In her senior campaign she was named First Team All League. Eventually she continued on to East Los Angeles College where she was both a utility player and pitcher. She was named 1st Team All-South Coast Conference. In her time at college she was heavily involved with the athletic department where she worked closely with other athletes on injury-prevention techniques and exercises. Today Promise hopes to inspire a new generation of softball players through coaching and mentoring. She dedicates her time and effort to helping young players develop the right attitude and passion for the game, as she had.
