Signing Day Spotlight: Joley Mitchell Signs With Notre Dame

Joley Mitchell is one the most revered switch hitters in the country blasting 24 home runs during her high school season and 18 over the summer. 

At Rose Bud High School, she hit 14 home runs lefty and 10 from the right side. "She's an absolute phenom," one opposing club coach said, "She's a freak and she can fly." She drove in 71 RBIs for Rose Bud with a 2.425 OPS, .766 on-base percentage, 1.558 slugging percentage, and only two strikeouts in 85 at-bats.

Mitchell was originally committed to Missouri but after the coaching change, she took a trip to South Bend and fell in love with Notre Dame. The rest is history.
