SYFP Signs Sam Show
Conroe, TX – June 3rd, 2019 - Scrap Yard Fast Pitch, an independent women’s professional softball team, announced today that they have signed “The Queen of Bat Flips” Samantha Show from Oklahoma State University! Most recently, sports fans world-wide recognize Sam from her thunderous—now legendary— bat flip at the Women’s College World Series that has been compared to Thor and his legendary Hammer.
Sam Show comes to SYFP after a stellar senior season as a Cowgirl, highlighted by OSU’s trip to the Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma, City just days ago. Though she had dominating performances in the circle all season, Sam Show became a house-hold name with her electric and passionate play in the batter’s box, and finished the season with a whopping 20 homeruns, two of which were against Florida at the WCWS. Sam maintained a .333 batting average in her senior season and racked up 62 base hits and 56 RBIs. In the circle, Show earned 22 wins against 10 losses, and fanned 110 batters during the season. Show was awarded NFCA 1stTeam All Region honors three years straight in 2017 and 2018 while playing at Texas A&M, and 2019 while with OSU.
Sam Show was eager to share her thoughts on joining SYFP, saying, “I’m super excited to join SYFP! I’ll be back together with some old teammates and girls I’ve played against for the majority of my life. I’m looking forward to playing against the best of the best and competing against players I’ve looked up to. I can’t wait to play with everyone!”
Connie May was excited to share her thoughts on signing Show, saying “While some say Sam is polarizing, I was impressed by how she ignored the critics and just played the game, especially in the WCWS where her performance silenced a lot of the critics. I guess it’s kind of hard to talk with your jaw dropped open. Sam has been this passionate since she was a young athlete growing up in the Houston area. She will bring a level of versatility to our team and keep fans on the edge of their seats waiting to see more of the greatest Show on earth!”
