BLITZ Softball Player of the Year Nominees

With the 2021 softball season officially in the books, we give you our 2021 BLITZ POY Nominees. We reached out to all head coaches requesting a submission of their players they’d like to have up for consideration. From this list, we will narrow down to a Finalist group. That group of finalists will then be up for a panel vote (not public) to determine the Player of the Year.
