Sami Fagan Inks with Scrap Yard Fast Pitch
Conroe, TX – May 2nd, 2018 – Scrap Yard Fast Pitch, LLC (SYFP) has announced the addition of another game-changer on the 2018 roster, Sami Fagan! The firecracker shortstop will give SYFP another lockdown player in the infield, while providing experienced lefty power at the plate.
The Dunnellon, FL native graduated from the University of Missouri in 2016, where she solidified herself as one of the all-time Tiger Softball greats. The former Tiger had an impressive collegiate career in Columbia, being named Third Team All-American in 2016 and All-SEC in 2016 and 2015. She is second in the Tiger Softball history books with 264 hits, 186 RBIs, and 199 runs.
Mike Steuerwald, a 5-time professional softball champion and SYFP Head Coach for the 2018 season, is certainly looking forward to having Fagan on the roster. When asked about the addition of Sami to the squad, Coach Stu said, “Sami is one of the top offensive players in the game and a true competitor. She’s fun to watch from the opposing dugout even though she can beat you any night.”
When asked about starting the next chapter in her softball journey, Sami replied, “I am so thankful for this opportunity to continue my career and play for the Scrap Yard Fast Pitch team. I’m excited to be a part of a great organization and I can’t wait for the season to start!”
Scrap Yard Fast Pitch Director Connie May is enthusiastic about adding another veteran presence to the roster. May said, “Sami Fagan is an extremely versatile athlete that knows how to compete. She is great under pressure and we are grateful to have the 2016 NPF Rookie of the Year with us this summer!”
