More than two decades ago, the late Heather Lefford Edborg was touring the east coast with her Shamrocks softball team. The Buffalo-based squad, which would go on to place fifth in the national tournament, happened to face a team from Stratford, Connecticut called the Brakettes.

Playing third base against the likes of U.S. Olympians Dot Richardson and Lisa Fernandez, Lefford — she will be referred to by her maiden name for the rest of this story — made quite the impression. So much so, apparently, that the Olympians affectionately called the Falconer native "Hoover” because they could not hit the ball by her.
