COLUMBIA — The Missouri softball program has announced the addition of Sami Fagan, who is transferring from Florida after her freshman season. Fagan will sit out 2013 because of NCAA Division 1 transfer rules but will be eligible for the 2014 campaign with three years of eligibility remaining.
A native of Dunnellon, Fla., Fagan posted the second-best batting average for the Gators and the fifth-best average in the SEC last season, hitting .378 at the plate with seven doubles, five triples and 30 runs batted in. Her five triples ranked 14th in all of Division I softball. She got on base at a .440 clip and stole 20 bases in 24 attempts.
Additionally, Fagan hit .643 while bunting, with 18 bunt singles last season in 28 attempts. She was selected to the All-SEC Tournament Team and was tied for third overall in the SEC in 2012 with 71 hits. Fagan is a utility player who played primarily at third base in her freshman season with Florida.
