Little Things Make a BIG Difference: Monica Abbott Classic 

Here at BIGS, we believe in making a difference. Whether it’s Giving Back to America's Troops or teaming up with brand ambassadors at their events, our hope is that small gestures will bring joy in BIG ways. The way we see it, little things can make a BIG difference.

Last November, we had the opportunity to team up with our BIGS brand ambassador Monica Abbott for her 5th annual Monica Abbott Classic. For three days, Monica hosts a softball tournament, along with mini clinics, for female athletes from 10U to 16U. This camp allows these girls to improve their basic athletic abilities while focusing attention on developing their hitting and pitching skills. We were happy to donate BIGS Coaches Buckets (later deemed Victory Buckets) filled with BIGS for the tournament champions and award recipients for the individual clinics. All athletes that attended the camp received a bag of BIGS upon arrival.

Every year Monica host numerous events and clinics across the nation where she personally works with and empowers young female athletes. Along with these events, Monica established the Monica Abbott Scholarship Fund to help female athletes from her hometown area. Her commitment to giving back and inspiring female athletes is unmatched. We were happy to team up with Monica to inspire young softball players at the Monica Abbott Classic.  

Monica started playing softball in the Monterey Bay area of California where she grew up and attended North Salinas High School. Upon graduating, Monica attended the University of Tennessee where she pitched for the Lady Volunteers. She later became the first pitcher in NCAA Division I history to record 500 strikeouts in all four years of her collegiate career. Monica Abbott is a highly decorated softball player with many career accomplishments including a silver medal from the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.
