Northport Native Transfers to Alabama
Former Samford and Northside outfielder Kinley Pate has officially joined Team 28.
“I am so thankful for the opportunity to be part of the Crimson Tide family! Being from Tuscaloosa, I have cheered on Alabama Softball for as long as I can remember and now my dream of playing for Alabama has come to life. I am so excited to make the most of this blessing and to give this program my all! Jeremiah 29:11," said Pate in the official press release.
Last season for the Bulldogs, Pate recorded a .227 batting average, 13 runs, 11 walks, ten hits, eight stolen bases, and two runs batted in in 17 games.
"“Kinley is a green-light baserunner, has a really good short game, great bat control and is another fast outfielder. We welcome Kinley and her family to our Alabama softball family. We love that she is a local product of Northside High School," said Alabama softball head coach Patrick Murphy in the official press release.
