Shelby Pendley signed a one-year contract extension with the USSSA Pride for the 2018 National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) season, and it was announced last week. Pendley was the second overall draft pick in the 2015 NPF Draft and went on to win the 2015 NPF Rookie of the Year.
Pendley will enter her fourth NPF season this summer and has tallied 135 hits, 87 RBI, 29 home runs and a .305 batting average in her NPF career. Her 13 home runs led the NPF in the 2017 season and helped her earn her third consecutive All NPF Team award.
“It’s a huge blessing to sign a contract for another year playing the sport I love. It’s an honor and a pleasure to be part of the USSSA organization. I’m very fortunate to get the opportunity to play in the NPF and make a living while playing softball. I’m excited about this upcoming season and can’t wait to be back on the field with my teammates,” said Pendley in USSSA Pride Press Release
The Pride also resigned another former Sooner in Lauren Chamberlain
about a week and a half ago for the 2018 season well.
