NPF 2019 Draft Selections Announced

The Chicago Bandits select Florida pitcher Kelly Barnhill as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NPF draft. 

USSSA Pride followed with another Florida favor Amanda Lorenz and Sydney Romero. You could call it a family reunion of sorts between Lorenz and Romero rekindling the former-Batbusters magic under Pride head coach Mike Stith. But the real reunion on the field will be when sisters Sydney and Sierra Romero play alongside each once more. 

Amanda Sanchez was the No. 5 overall pick for the Cleveland Comets who went for power and pitching in this year's draft.

War Shougang Eagles? All four of their picks were of the Auburn type. Kendall Veach, Casey McCrackin, Morgan Podany, Bree Forniss will keep the softball rolling for the Beijing Eagles. 

Pitching was on the mind of the Aussie Peppers who enters the league for the first team in NPF history selecting Taran Alvelo (Washington), Nicole Newman (Drake), and Savannah Heebner (Houston).
