Texas senior pitcher/outfielder Miranda Elish announced that she will take the field in the 2021 season because of concerns about the ongoing pandemic. This news comes as a shock to many Longhorns fans who expected to see Elish this season.

Last season, Elish banked a 1.25 ERA with 96 strikeouts and an 11-3 record. On offense, she batted .370 with 7 doubles, 4 home runs, and 19 RBIs. Elish was First Team All-Pac 12 Conference in 2018 and First Team All-Big 12 Conference in  2019.

Before transferring to Texas, she competed in the Pac-12 wearing the Oregon Ducks uniform. She helped the Ducks reach the WCWS her sophomore year with a 37-2 record, 1.42 ERA, 17 shutouts, and 347 strikeouts. 

In 2015, FloSoftball named Elish as the 2016 Hot 100 No. 1 overall player in the class.

We are definitely going to miss seeing Elish on the field this season and we wish her all the best.
