Maya Bland 1

Argyle outfielder Maya Bland, center, is one of the top high school players in the country and has committed to Oklahoma. Her father, Martell Bland, died of cancer less than a year ago.

ARGYLE — Trips to In-N-Out Burger following softball games are among Maya Bland’s favorite memories of the time she spent with her father.

Martell Bland was his daughter’s biggest fan, a partner to play catch with in the backyard, a batting practice pitcher and someone to talk with about ups and downs on the field.
