BLITZ Softball Player of the Year Finalists

We took our nominees and honorable mentions, and whittled that list down to a finalist pool of 5, leaving you, the fans, the honor of picking the last finalist from those who didn’t make our cut. PICK THE LAST FINALIST is an open fan vote that includes SOME, but NOT all, of the remaining nominees. We limit the poll to include only one player per team.

The finalists that are already locked in are Madi Cronic (Banks), Lauren English (Lumpkin), Carson Hobbs (Commerce), Laney McGee (Stephens), and Taylor Spivey (Jefferson). Vote at the bottom of the page, or use the link above to send one more finalist into the group!

NOTE: Finalists are voted on ONLY by an internal panel to determine the Softball Player of the Year!
