When Friday rolls around and his coworkers head home for the weekend, JB Zorich, Facilities Manager with BITS, a Cognosante Company, is often grabbing his softball gear and hopping a flight to play semi-professional softball. For JB, softball is more than a hobby; it is a longtime passion that has landed him on the Baugh Ford team in Conference USSSA (United States Specialty Sports Association), competing with some of the best players and teams in the country.
JB’s team is based in Georgia, but he plays alongside teammates from across the Southeast. Every year, his team has made it to the ultimate tournament for softball players: the Major World Series.
With so many World Series appearances, JB has a number of softball fans. But, his No. 1 fan will always be his son, who often travels to watch JB play—and live-streams the games to watch from home when he can’t.
“It’s a really great atmosphere, and I’ve made friends from all over,” says JB. “I get to play against the best softball players in the country every weekend.”
