Tori Vidales Starts Her Pro Career in Texas
Updated: Oct 2, 2018
Conroe, TX – May 30th, 2018 - Scrap Yard Fast Pitch, LLC (SYFP) continues to add to their already loaded roster by signing Texas A&M Aggie, Tori Vidales! The La Porte, Texas native comes to SYFP fresh from a NCAA Super Regional appearance that capped off a stellar senior season! Vidales is a versatile infielder and member of the Mexican National Team who will immediately contribute with her sharp defensive play and right-handed power at the dish.
Vidales started off her senior season by being named to the 2018 SEC All Preaseason Team and finished the season with a First Team All-SEC nod. In 2016 and 2017, Vidales was named to the NFCA All-Region Second Team, in addition to being awarded Third All-American in 2016. During her freshman year in 2015, Vidales showed her talents quickly, earning Second Team All-SEC and SEC All-Freshman Team honors.
When Vidales was asked about continuing her career in Texas with SYFP, she said, “I am so excited to get the opportunity to play for Scrap Yard Fast Pitch! Continuing to play the game I love while growing the game is everything I could ask for, and more. There are so many talented players on the roster and I know that I will be able to learn so much from the veterans. I’m looking forward to a great summer in Houston!”
SYFP Head Coach Mike Steuerwald is eager to add local talent that continues the Texas tradition and draws local fans to the Scrap Yard Sports Complex. Steuerwald said, “Tori is an exciting piece to add to SYFP. Having her as a local player adds to the excitement, and clearly from her Super Regional performance she knows how to handle the pressure of big moments.”
SYFP Director Connie May loves the addition of Aggies to the roster, having had her daughter Meagan May Whitley, a former Aggie All-American, play professionally for two years. When asked about signing Vidales to the 2018 squad, Connie said, “Tori exemplifies being an Aggie. Her records at Texas A&M speak for themselves and she is clearly one of the most clutch hitters in the game today. The fans will love to watch her play.”
