Maddie MacGrandle Leaves Oregon In The Middle Of The Season

No, it wasn’t an April fools joke. Maddie MacGrandle left the University of Oregon on April 1 after winning the only game in the Stanford three-game series.

The sophomore transfer from Texas A&M was 3-7 on the season with a 7.81 ERA while allowing 54 runs with 44 walks and 36 strikeouts in 43 innings pitched. 

Her departure leaves the Ducks with only two pitchers and Coach Lombardi looking to her roster for potential pitching support. MacGrandle becomes the tenth player to leave the program.

McGrandle’s father wasted no time Monday night criticizing the program.

Judging from the tweets, it’s implied that MacGrandle was under the weather and still recovering from a concussion in early March. 

At this point, it's unclear if MacGrandle will return to softball or transfer to another school.
