SYFP Signs Riley Sartain
Conroe, TX – May 23rd, 2019 - Scrap Yard Fast Pitch, an independent women’s professional softball team, announced today that they have signed Texas A&M All-American, Riley Sartain!
Scrap Yard Fast Pitch will look to continue the Texas tradition by inking a contract with infielder Riley Sartain, a native of Aledo, Texas. Riley graduated from Aledo High School and played for Texas-based travel organizations Mizuno Impulse and Impact Gold. In her senior year at Texas A&M, Riley started all 55 games with 7 doubles, 1 triple, 7 homeruns, and 25 RBIs. As the lone senior at Texas A&M, Riley started in 232 games during her 4 years and finished her career with 37 home runs and 136 RBIs. Sartain posted a .959 fielding percentage and 436 assists, which ranks sixth all-time in program history! Sartain joins fellow former Aggie, Ashley Walters, who will enter her second season behind the plate with SYFP.
Ashley Walters was thrilled to give her thoughts on signing Sartain, saying, “I’m super excited to have Riley join SYFP! Having another Aggie close is going to be a lot of fun! She is determined to put in hard work and dedication to win, and that is going to be awesome for our team. And of course, she has the best hands in all of college softball!”
When SYFP Director, Connie May was asked about having another Aggie join the program, she said “I am such a huge fan of Riley. I have been a fan since she was in travel ball and I have great respect for Texas A&M Softball. Coach Evans recruits great athletes and even better people, so for us to have her in our program is WONDERFUL!”
Stay tuned in the coming days for an announcement of the official 2019 summer schedule!
