Scrap Yard Fast Pitch, a professional independent women's softball team out of Conroe, Texas, announced the signing of Finney on Saturday.
Finney is the second Rebel to sign with the Scrap Yard organization this summer, joining fellow senior Kylan Becker. Finney and Becker were two of just three seniors on an Ole Miss team that advanced to the Tucson Super Regional and finished ranked No. 15 in the nation this season.
“It's a dream come true, honestly," Finney said in a release sent out by the Scrap Yard organization. "I am so lucky to be playing with Scrap Yard Fast Pitch. They are an incredible team with so many incredible players. This is something I have dreamed about since I was little, and it seems unreal that it's coming true. I am so thankful to Scrap Yard for giving me this opportunity."
Finney spent three seasons in Oxford after transferring from Oklahoma following the 2016 season. In her three seasons with the Rebels she posted a 27-13 record in the circle with a career earned run average of 2.66. She was counted on heavily this season as part of a 1-2 starting pitcher punch with junior Molly Jacobsen, posting an 18-10 mark and 2.70 ERA.
Finney could also be an asset for the Scrap Yard team at the plate, as well. Over three seasons, she hit .224 with 18 home runs and 80 RBI's as a Rebel, compiling a .429 career slugging percentage.
Finney is expected to remain at Ole Miss as a graduate assistant coach next season.
