Haylie McCleney joins the roster with five years of international experience with USA Softball under her belt, along with two professional seasons. McCleney is one of the most memorable players in Alabama Crimson Tide history, earning All-American, Academic All-American, NFCA All American, and All SEC honors, among others. She finished her career with the Crimson Tide as the program’s all-time leader in batting average (.447), on base percentage (.569), walks (199), and triples (16)!
