Schlopy Joins Montalvo Inks Deal to Return to the Racers
Racers Leadoff hitter ready to “set the table” in 2014
Akron, OH- Akron Racers GM, Joey Arrietta, announced today that centerfielder Taylor Schlopy will rejoin the Racers for the 2014 season. This will mark the fourth season of play for the Racers leadoff hitter in 2014.
“I am really excited to have Taylor back this season,” remarked Arrietta. “Taylor had a great season last year in the leadoff spot in our lineup. She has a good eye for the ball and she fights to get on base.”
Schlopy hit .298 good for 10th place among the league’s offensive leaders in 2013.Her 32 runs scored and 10 stolen bases also earned her a spot on the NPF leader board last summer. She posted 42 hits including five homeruns.
Defensively, Schlopy registered a perfect 1.000 percent fielding percentage during the 2013 season handling the ball 63 times without an error. Schlopy moved back to more familiar territory in centerfield in 2013 after the departure of the 2011 NPF Defensive Player of the Year, Lisa Modglin, retired.
Schlopy was the Racers first pick in the 2011 NPF Senior Draft and the second selection overall. The California native enjoyed an All-American career at the University of Georgia under Coach Lu Harris.
Schlopy is currently in her second season as an assistant coach with the Ohio University Bobcats.
