SYFP Signs Kylan Becker
Conroe, TX – May 29th, 2019 - Scrap Yard Fast Pitch, an independent women’s professional softball team, announced today the signing of Ole Miss Rebel and former Team USA Softball outfielder, Kylan Becker!
Originally from Miami, Florida, Kylan spent her last four years at Ole Miss in Oxford, Mississippi, making spectacular plays in the grass and leading the team with a .428 batting average and 83 hits in her senior season. Kylan’s season came to an end this past Saturday, where the Rebels, after an historic season, fell to the Arizona Wildcats in Tucson. Kylan led the program to their second most wins in team history, with a final record of 41-20 in the 2019 season. In addition to her success at Ole Miss, Kylan was selected to the 2018 USA Softball Japan All-Star Series roster, which marked the first time in program history a Rebel played on the USA Softball National Team.
When asked about beginning her professional career with Scrap Yard Fast Pitch, Kylan said, “Thank you Scrap Yard Fast Pitch for the amazing opportunity to continue my career as a softball player at the professional level and for believing in me and making my dreams come true! I feel honored and privileged to continue to play the sport I absolutely love with an organization that is fully committed to elevating the sport of softball at the local and international level. I cannot wait to see what this next chapter of my career has in store!”
Connie May was eager to add her thoughts on the addition of Kylan, saying, “It is such an honor to be able to have Kylan sign with us. Coach Mike Smith said it best ‘She is a great player and an even better person.’ She exemplifies passion and hard work which will make a great addition to our Scrap Yard family!”
