Lynnie France



      BSC STAFF: Hi Lynnie.

Lynnie: Hi.


BSC STAFF: You know you are the epitome of, “Speak softly, but carry a big stick.”

Lynnie: There's no need for alot of words -- just do what you do (Enough Said)


BSC STAFF:  But you know these player profiles are designed to let the rest of the BSC world look inside of you. So it is my job to get you to open up.

Lynnie: It's said that you will know them by their fruit.....What people see on the softball field is a very big part of who I am.  I love the game, and I love to compete.


 BSC STAFF: First of all let’s talk about that core group of players that you play with on Enough Said. Last week, Big Swole said that Enough Said is designed to win championships, exactly what does that mean?

Lynnie: The core is the heart & soul of Enough Said.  We are the pulse.  We do what we have to do by any means necessary...cursing each other out / loving each other through good times & bad times.  We play to win.  Nothing else is acceptable.


BSC STAFF:  To many that would indicate a group of players that are playing together, but not necessarily caring about each other. However, I have seen you play on many occasions and that is clearly not the case. How has your team achieved that balance?

Lynnie:  It's important for teammates to know you have their backs, no matter what, by nipping things in the bud before they escalate, by saying things that are difficult to say to each other's face, and loving each other through the tough times.


 BSC STAFF:  3 players from your 2004 squad played with Ga. Mixx this year and won the 2005 title, what was your reaction upon hearing the news?

Lynnie:  When you've gone to war with someone and you've battled with them, they will always be a part of you.  So, I am happy with any success that my "sisters" achieve, with or without me.


BSC STAFF: Rumor has it, some or all maybe retuning to Enough Said, care to elaborate.

Lynnie:  I would love to have my sisters come back; only if they want to, though.  Enough Said is not desperate for anyone.  We all realize that it's about the core, not any one player.


BSC STAFF: You won back-to-back-to-back BSC World titles from 2001-2003, not many can claim that distinction, However, your major sponsor, has had his own world tournament on the same dates the last 2 years(which you won both of them as well), but he’s making it so that doesn’t happen again. Is that music to your ears?

Lynnie:   Absolutely!  BSC tournaments give me pleasure like none other.  The love that the fans show us is awesome.  They make it known that they appreciate what we do.


 BSC STAFF: Is it true you have never lost a Black American tournament of any kind?

Lynnie:  That's true.  I never really thought about it.  Although we play every tounament to win, we go to the Black American tournaments to "show out".


BSC STAFF: Enough about the team, let’s focus on you a little more.


BSC STAFF: Your physique, straight out of a women’s bodybuilding magazine in my opinion, how hard do you work at it?

Lynnie: I work out 4-5 times a week.  It also helps that I play basketball, tennis and softball.


BSC STAFF: I have always wanted calves like yours, what do I need to do to get the same results?

 Lynnie:  Running up the stairs at my mom's house, along with lots of toe raises.


BSC STAFF: Some consider you the premier player in the game, when healthy, how difficult was it playing this year with your injuries?

Lynnie: WOW!  The past 3-4 years have been very difficult not being able to help my team out as much as I'd like, but my teammates have done a great job of picking up my slack.


BSC STAFF: Do you expect to be 100% by the start of the 2006 season?

Lynnie: Yes, I'm preparing now to bring it! 


BSC STAFF: We often hear of men hitting 400ft. homers, but I have seen you do the same, is it all strength or is it technique as well?

Lynnie: For a female, I'm pretty strong.  My technique isn't always the best, but when I get the right pitch and turn on it.....ooooo   wwweeee!!!!


BSC STAFF: Well you know BSC is headquartered in the "SHOW ME STATE", so we like to show folks what we are talking about. We have a clip of you launching a HR up hill and over 2 rows of cars.

Lynnie: Is that so, when and where did you get that?



BSC STAFF: Just sit back and watch with the rest of the BSC family.

BSC STAFF: Your former/future teammate, K.T. of Ga. Mixx, is known for her ability to hit the long ball as well, is there any rivalry between the two of you.

Lynnie: The only problem I have w/ K.T. is keeping her from eating my shrimp when we go out to dinner.  As far as her hitting the long ball, "Do what you do, K.T!"  That's what the fans come to see!


BSC STAFF: What do you enjoy most about playing on the BSC circuit?

Lynnie:   Playing in front of my people, the music, the BBQ grills, the nice cars, and again, the love and appreciation that's shown for what we do.


BSC STAFF: What is your favorite BSC tournament to play in?

Lynnie:  Tallahassee--because we're based out of Tallahassee, this tournament gives us an opportunity to showcase our talent in front of our people. 

Worlds in Ohio--because the complex is ideal.


BSC STAFF: What changes/improvements would you like to see within BSC?

Lynnie: Being mindful of the tournament schedule for Sundays so that those traveling can return home at a decent hour.


BSC STAFF: What are your goals for the 2006 season?

Lynnie: Raise the bar!  Not to cheat myself, my teammates, or the fans.  To perform at a higher level offensively/defensively all the time.

 BSC STAFF:  Tell us something about you that most people do not know.

Lynnie:  I'm somewhat shy, and I'm not as mean as I may appear to be.  Also, I have legal custody of my sister's 4 kids.


BSC STAFF: That is about it. We thank you for your time, any shout outs!

Lynnie: Enough Said--the is indeed an honor to be a part of you!
