Former Auburn Tigers star Kasey Cooper has signed a two-year contract with the Scrap Yard Dawgs of the National Pro Fastpitch league.
After going undrafted in the NPF draft in the spring, Cooper’s contract will extend through the remainder of the 2017 season and for the 2018 campaign.
In her first at-bat for the team on Sunday night, Cooper hit a walk-off single that clinched the victory over the Chicago Bandits.
A member of Team USA, Cooper was named an alternate for the fifteen-member National Team roster for the upcoming Pan Am Games.
While at Auburn, Cooper earned her way onto the all-SEC team all four years of her collegiate career and earned three all-American honors, including first-team honors in 2015 and 2016. She ended her college career with sixty-seven home runs and 270 RBI, the latter an SEC all-time record.
On the Dawgs roster, she joins a club that boasts incredible infield depth, with ten other infielders on the roster. Arizona great Katiyana Mauga is another primary third baseman and power hitter on the team’s roster.
She joins three fellow Tiger alumni on rosters across the NPF league, including Emily Carosone, Haley Fagan, and Angel Bunner. Former Auburn first baseman Jade Rhodes was recently released from the Dawgs.
