Michelle Ann Cummins was the premier shortstop in Greater Cincinnati during the nineties, powering both ABP (1992) and Empress Chili (1993) to a 4th place finish in the USSSA Women’s “A” World Series.  Later in the Masters 35-Over program she helped lead Ty-1-On to four U-Trip World Championships in five years from 2001-‘06.  She also captured a Women’s “B” World title with Ty-1-On in 2007.  A lifetime .550-.600 hitter with good power in the gaps, Cummins also had excellent speed.  She won back-to-back Greater Cincinnati “Player of the Year” honors in 1992 and ’93, and was a four-time All-World selection, including 1992 with ABP at the Women’s “A” World Series, and then in 2001, 2003 and 2004 in the Masters program with Ty-1-On.  She was also named World Tournament MVP in 2003.  Cummins’ teams won numerous State Championships and National Invitational Tournaments during her 37-year career, and she was named to several all-tournament teams in those events.  Her biggest thrill was when Empress Chili upset Cannon Illusions in the winners’ bracket finals of the USSSA World Tournament in 1995 before losing in the championship game.
