Aubree Munro Heads to Houston for 2018 Summer
Conroe, TX – May 9th, 2018 – The signing spree continues on! Scrap Yard Fast Pitch, LLC (SYFP) has added another Florida Gator to the 2018 roster by signing catcher, Aubree Munro! In addition to her continued professional play, the California native has also been a member of USA Softball National Team since 2016, and will play again with the team this summer on the WSBC World Championship roster.
Aubree, a two-time Florida Gator National Champion, racked up major accolades from her time in Gainesville. In her four years, Munro was named to the All-SEC Team, SEC All-Defensive Team, WCWS All-Tournament Team, and SEC Academic Honor Roll. She is one of only nine Gators to record a perfect fielding percentage in a season, and she did not make an error in 354 changes behind the plate in 2015!
When asked about joining SYFP for the 2018 summer, Aubree said, “I’m so excited to be continuing my career with Scrap Yard Fast Pitch! I think it’s amazing that they have continued a partnership with USA and are making efforts to help us prepare for a big summer. I’m really looking forward to growing the game and meeting so many awesome new fans this summer alongside my Scrap Yard Fast Pitch teammates!”
SYFP Head Coach, Mike Steuerwald, is exited to get another diverse catcher on the roster to compliment the outstanding pitching staff. Steuerwald said, “Aubree is a tremendous addition to have on our roster. She is one of the best backstops in the country behind the plate. She does an excellent job with her pitch calling and will be a great asset to have, especially to our entire pitching staff.”
When Scrap Yard Fast Pitch Director, Connie May, was asked about adding another Florida fan-favorite to the 2018 roster, she said, “Another Gator in Red, White, and Blue! Aubree is a class act who happens to carry quite the “gun” around on her right side. It will be exciting to see how many runners she can throw out this summer.”
