BERKELEY - After we met the freshmen in a series of CalBears.com Q&As, it is now time to see how their freshman years faired. First up is infielder Cassandra Vega, who came to the Bears by way of Rialto, Calif. Vega played in eight games this season, hitting .667 with two RBI. Mostly serving as a pinch hitter, Vega also filled in at first base and pitched for three games. CalBears.com jumped at the opportunity to see what it was like for Vega to get one year of college and Division I softball under her belt.
