Tinley Park softball star Gabby Altobelli gave her team plenty to talk about.

Altobelli, who attends Marist, knocked in what turned out to be the winning run for the Bevery Bandits travel team in a 5-4 victory over the Texas Bombers-Jones team July 27 at Bill Barber Park in Irvine, CA. to capture the Premier Girls Fastpitch 16U National Championship.

She drove in the run to give the Bandits a 5-4 lead minutes after Texas scored three runs to close the gap.
