Softball Star with Erb’s Palsy Hits it out of the Park

Softball Star with Erb’s Palsy Hits it out of the Park

St. Augustine College softball power hitter Jo’Landa White boasts 28 career home runs—the most by any other Falcon in over a decade—but even more impressive is that she holds this record while struggling with limited mobility in her arm. “I can’t extend past my elbow. I can’t lift up, lift back, just basic movements I can’t do,” says White, who was diagnosed with Erb’s palsy when her arm was partially paralyzed after experiencing a brachial plexus injury  at birth. White holds softball close to her heart, calling it her “happy place,” free from the insults and teasing she endured in high school. White doesn’t see herself as having a disability, and neither does her coach, Nikki Bynum Bumpass, who celebrates the player’s success: “It doesn’t stop her. She does an excellent job of making life work for her.”
