Alabama Alum Haylie McCleney Makes Team USA Softball Roster for Sixth-Consecutive Year
For the sixth-straight year, Alabama softball alum Haylie McCleney will play for Team USA, as the 2019 roster was announced Monday by USA Softball.
This year’s 18-member roster was finalized by the Women’s National Team Selection Committee following last week’s trials in Clearwater, Fla. Team USA will compete in select tournaments and invitational events this summer before being further narrowed to 15 prior to the Pan American Games. McCleney has competed with Team USA every year since 2014. Last summer, the Morris, Ala., native led the red, white and blue to a gold medal at the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) World Championships, securing a bid for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics in the process.
The four-year All-American concluded her Crimson Tide career in 2016 with four school career records, including a .447 career batting average. She is just the fifth player in program history and the 21st in NCAA history to total 300 hits, 200 runs and 100 stolen bases.
