SOUTH KINGSTOWN - Ask any South Kingstown baseball player under the age of 13 to name their favorite baseball player, and you’ll likely get answers such as “David Ortiz,” “Dustin Pedroia,” and, should they venture outside the hallowed city limits of Boston and the friendly confines of Fenway, “Derek Jeter.” Each of those names, however, will not be the answer given by South Kingstown Little League’s only girl player in the Majors division. Her answer would seem out of time.
Ask Ella Denny Prescott what her first love is, and she’ll point to her family. Ask her again, only this time ask her to specify a sport, and she’ll say she has a tough time deciding between basketball and baseball. Little wonder. She excels at both. Having just wrapped up the traveling basketball season, her full attention has now turned to baseball. And with good results.
