All in the Family:
As if their similar-sounding names and comparable looks weren't enough, Jamia Reid and Elia Reid are identical twins.

Humble Beginnings:
Jamia and Elia Reid got started playing softball when their mother signed them up when they were eight-years-old, just so they would have something to do because cheerleading and dance class were not working out for the Reid twins.

Like a G6:
As a prepster Elia Reid also competed in track and was an all-county performer in the 200-meter race. She still ranks on the Orange County High School Girls All-Time Top-25 List in the 100 and 200-meter events.

Why I Have My Number:
"I was number 1 all through travel ball but wore 5 in high school, so 5 grew on me over the three years. But I think it's meant to be because the letter E is the fifth letter of the alphabet. So forget the number1- I love number 5."

My Walk-Up Songs Are:
""Best Love Song" by T-Pain because it's one of those catchy songs that get stuck in your head. "Playa Like Me" by Keak da Sneak because I have to have at least one Bay Area song."
