Ali Merrifield enters her junior year with a position switch as she will see a majority of her playing time behind the plate in 2008. She is a very versatile player that can play a number of spots in the field. At the plate, Merrifield hit .205 with nine runs scored and 10 RBI in 83 plate appearances last year. Those are numbers that the coaching staff expects to improve as she has worked very hard in the offseason to refine her stroke.
