What DJ Sanders Won’t Be Able To Do In Oregon
What won't former Louisiana Ragin' Cajun shortstop DJ Sanders be able to do in Oregon, that she was able to do in Louisiana?
Pump her own gas.
Oregon and New Jersey are the two U.S. states in which it is illegal for motorists to pump their own gas.
Sanders, who played three season at UL, announced yesterday that she will transfer an play her final season with the Oregon Ducks.
The university granted Sanders her releases, making her eligible to play for Oregon in the 2018 college softball season.
Make no mistake; Sanders will be sorely missed, after putting together one of the best seasons in school history in 2017.
A native of Columbus, Mississippi, Sanders hit a .388, to go along with 29 home runs and 82 runs batted in, both of which led the nation, while matching the NCAA single-season grand slam record with six.
That production earned Sanders a long list of accolades, including NFCA Division I First Team All-American, NFCA All-Central Region, Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year and Louisiana Collegiate Softball Hitter of the Year honors, while being named as a Top Ten Finalist for the NFCA Player of the Year Award..
Sanders was also one of four softball players in the country to be nominated for the prestigious Softball Honda Award, given each year by the NFCA to the best female athlete in each of the 12 NCAA-sanctioned sports.
A starter in all 164 games during her career at Louisiana, Sanders finished just one homer short of becoming only the third UL softball player to ever crush 30 long balls in a single season.
