Maren Angus first picked up a softball at the age of four and she played "A" travel ball from eight to 16. Her playing career came full circle when she played for the United States Maccabi team in the 2017 Maccabiah in Tel Aviv, Israel, where she won a Gold Medal. Later that summer, she joined the staff of the Israeli Women's Junior National Team and then the Israeli Women's National Team in 2019.
When she hung up her cleats after high school, she knew she wanted to be involved with the game she grew up playing. After graduating from Middle Tennessee State University in 2013, she began writing for MLB.com, The Tennessean and NHL.com. In 2015, she began covering softball for GameChanger and Fastpitch News. Since then, she has launched Behind the Plate Softball and Softball America.
Angus is currently a Regional Event Director for College Sports Evaluation.
