Our sixth installment of the Renegade report features Tim Syphers talking with Melissa Hoyt, Our only active female player on our roster at the moment. Melissa joined the squad in the 2007 season and was the 2nd woman to ever play in a game in Renegade history. She has played with every woman Renegade in team history (we have had 5 who have played in games). Melissa has multiple health issues that limits her ability to log a lot of playing time but she finds great joy in being part of the team and watching the team grow. She works hard to educate herself about the game. In 2001, she made her first world Series after competing for years locally on the East Coast. In 2015, she set career highs in games played (6) and she ranks 22nd all-time in games played for the Renegades at 20.
