GETTING TO KNOW ZECHMAN
Parents: Rick and Vickie Zechman
Spouse: Leslie Zechman

Favorite sport besides softball: Football
What it means to represent the United States: It means everything to be able to represent your country and have USA across your chest. I get chills every time I take the field.
What do you enjoy most about softball? Traveling across the world and playing in different countries. I enjoy meeting different people and making new friends in different countries. Seeing how other people live and the different cultures is very interesting
How did you get started in softball? My dad played fastpitch softball and I watched him since I was a baby. I grew up on the field being a bat boy and eventually played on the same team with my dad.
