VIERA, FL. (June 14, 2021) – The USSSA Pride has signed 2021 Women’s College World Series Standout pitcher Odicci Alexander for their 2021 season, team officials announced today.
A legend in the Dukes program throwing 1057 pitches during the 2021 Women’s College World Series, this James Madison University most decorated softball player, finished her career with 81 wins, racking up 712 strikeouts in 640 innings of work.
“Her passion for the sport and her love of the game were evident every inning of every game at the WCWS, as we saw firsthand in Oklahoma”, remarked Pride General Manager Don DeDonatis Sr. “Odicci has been on the Pride radar since 2019 when we were scouting and drafting then JMU pitcher Megan Good. It didn’t go unnoticed that Odicci was 24 and 1 that year with an ERA of 1.70 and 178 strikeouts in 152 innings. I am happy to finally see that the softball world had an opportunity to witness firsthand what an outstanding program JMU and coach Loren LaPorte have created.”
The JMU softball program athletes are no strangers to the Pride as Odicci will join fellow alumni pitchers Jailyn Ford and Megan Good in the circle this year.
Help us welcome Odicci to the Pride this week during their debut home series vs Team Mexico at the USSSA Space Coast Complex in Viera, Florida beginning June 15th.
The five-time NPF Cowles Cup champion and seven-time NPF regular season champions, the USSSA Pride will be back in action at the Space Coast Complex in Viera, FL on June 15th. For more information about the Pride or to purchase tickets, please visit USSSAFLORIDAPRIDE.com.
