Written By: Admin

We are excited to announce the addition of Lacey Waldrop to the Baseball & Softball Rebellion Staff! Waldrop will be Softball Rebellion's Director of Pitching and will be doing softball pitching lessons as well as providing content for our website and social media's.

Waldrop comes to the Rebellion from Duke University where she was the pitching coach for the last two seasons, helping lead the Blue Devils to 54 total wins and 24 ACC wins. In addition, Duke's pitching staff finished second in the ACC with a 2.05 ERA in 2018.

Baseball Rebellion CEO has this to say about Waldrop:

"I am excited to announce the addition of Lacey to the team here at the Rebellion. Since I met Lacey two years ago I knew she would be a dynamite addition to our staff. She's going to lead the Softball Rebellion pitching program and her vast knowledge from both playing and coaching at the highest levels will help our hitting program get better as well. Hiring an ACC pitching coach and former National Player of the Year (2014) is a tremendous addition to Softball Rebellion. We couldn't be more excited to be apart of Lacey's ongoing growth and development of young women."

Before joining the Blue Devils, Waldrop spent one season at the University of Oklahoma, where she served as a graduate student manager. Waldrop and the Sooners went 61-9, captured both the Big 12 regular season and tournament titles and defeated top-seeded Florida in the best-of-three NCAA championship series to win their second consecutive Women's College World Series crown.

The two-time ACC Pitcher of the Year selection and the 2014 USA Softball National Player of the Year pick at Florida State paced the Seminoles to a four-year record of 195-58 with three ACC regular season championships, two ACC Tournament crowns and four NCAA Tournament berths including one College World Series appearance in 2014. A three-time All-ACC and All-America choice, she turned in 859.2 career innings of work and posted a 109-29 record with seven saves, a 1.37 earned run average and 917 strikeouts.

Waldrop, a two-time Academic All-ACC choice and two-time ACC All-Tournament Team selection, finished her career among Florida State’s all-time leaders in pitching victories (1st), pitching appearances (170; 2nd), strikeouts (3rd) and saves (4th). In addition, she was the recipient of the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award in 2015 and earned 16 ACC Player of the Week citations during her heralded career. The No. 3 overall selection in the 2015 National Pro Fastball draft by the Chicago Bandits, Waldrop helped the Bandits to consecutive NPF championships in 2015 and 2016.

She joins Baseball Director of Pitching Dave Shinksie as the only BR/SR employees to have a Wikipedia page. Chas, JK, Tyler, Eric & Garrett were not good enough athletes to deserve such an honor.
