Step aside Cat Osterman, Jennie Finch and Jessica Mendoza. Sincere apologies to North Canton Hoover legend Jenna Lilley. For one day at least, none of you were the most famous fast-pitch softball name in the country, or even in Stark County.

On Friday, that title belonged to Rylee Abbuhl.

She's a 10-year-old, brown-haired fifth-grader from Canton whose young career has been derailed by a condition that will take her life. Doctors say her central nervous system is failing, delayed effects from a near-drowning six years ago.
