Jessie Scroggins starred at Baylor University and was selected 15th overall by the Chicago Bandits in the 2018 National Pro Fastpitch draft. She made an immediate impact with the Bandits.
The rookie outfielder was all over the NPF Leader boards. She hit .412, with 3 home runs, 18 rbi's, 29 runs scored and 13 stolen bases. Those numbers earned her the NPF Rookie of the Year award.
Many times, rookies struggle for playing time before they eventually become regulars and even stars. Jessie jumped right into the action and looks to have a promising career. It will be fun watching her grow and develop.
She's also a great person. I had the pleasure of interviewing her earlier in the season. My interview is at On the Beat With Jessie Scroggins of the Chicago Bandits 2018.
