Tournament Summary

 This summary will be expanded to include more photos and stats, but suffice to say this was simply an awesome display of power, pitching and a host of defensive gems. Counting 3 Saturday pool games and 3 Sunday championship bracket games the Slammers outscored the opposition 63 -10 hitting 16 home runs. Jenny Behan (James Madison '19) put 5 over the fence including 3 in one game vs the Saints. Not finished yet Jenny then vaulted the Slammers into the championship game with a tie breaking HR in the 6th inning to defeat Hooters 3-2. In the 22 year Slammer history we can recall only one other player, Jhavon Hamilton ( IL State '13) who hit 3 HRs in one tournament game.

Slammers Vs Chicago Bandits

 

EXHIBITION GAME

SLAMMERS vs NPF CHAMPION CHICAGO BANDITS

* Sunday May 29 @ 5:00pm - Chicago Bandits - The Ball Park - Rosemont, Ill

5/29/16 Rosemont, IL - Behind a combined one-hit effort from Michelle Gascoigne and Lacey Waldrop, along with a solo home run from draftee Kristen Brown, the Bandits topped the Indiana Slammers by a score of 5-0 in Sunday night’s exhibition. In a game extended to 9 innings our 3 pitchers, all just entering their Soph years in college and backed by several spectacular defensive plays (diving catch in LF by Kelly Welsh (Wisc '19) and leaping grab of a line drive by second baseman Riley Strandgard (IL  ST '18), held the NPF champion Bandits to only 3 runs on 7 hits thru the first 8 innings. 

 

 Starting pitcher Morgan Florey (Evansville'19) surrendered only 1 hit (solo HR K. Brown) and walked no one in her 3 innings of work. Morgan was followed in the circle by Kiley Jones (Loyola '19) and  Angela Morrow (Wisc '19) who, working with catcher Jordan de los Reyes (Il St '17, MVC Def Player of the Year), did a great job of handling the high powered Bandit offense and keeping the Slammers in the game. The Slammers lone hit was a single over the SS by starting pitcher Morgan Florey.

The Bandits tacked on 2 unearned runs in the 9th inning making the final score 5-0. This was an exceptional defensive and pitching effort by 12 standout college players playing together for the first time. Beautiful weather and a wonderful evening of softball in the Bandit's world class stadium in Rosemont, IL. The Bandits begin their pro schedule May 31st and the Slammers play their first summer tournament in Bloomington, IL next weekend.

05/31/2016 Rosemont, IL - Bandits Sign Four From Tryouts Incl Former Slammer Kelsey Dotson (IN '15 )

06/13/2016 -  Former Slammer Kelsey Dotson signs 1 yr contract with the Bandits
