Former Rebel pitcher Brittany Finney signs professionally with Scrap Yard Fast Pitch

Brittany Finney and Kylan Becker are teammates once again.

Former Ole Miss pitcher Brittany Finney signed a professional softball contract with Scrap Yard Fast Pitch over the weekend.

The team, located in the Houston, Texas area, has now signed two former Rebels this offseason. Ole Miss outfielder Kylan Becker signed with the team back in May.

Transferring from Oklahoma after her freshman year, Finney fit in seamlessly with the Ole Miss pitching depth her first two years in Oxford. In 2019 as a senior, she and Molly Jacobson formed a formidable one-two punch in the Ole Miss rotation.

As a senior, Finney led the rebels with 18 wins. She totaled 129 strikeouts, posting an ERA of just 2.70. In the 2019 Oxford Regional, Finney made three appearances, registering the win in all three.

Finney and Becker spent three seasons together at Ole Miss, leading the team to three NCAA Tournament appearances. Twice, the team advanced to the Super Regionals. Now, they get to be teammates professionally.

Scrap Yard Fast Pitch was created to develop professional opportunities for top softball players. The team added just four players to the team this year, and Becker and Finney were two of them.
