Junior Bailey Hemphill hit a pair of home runs in the Texas A&M series this past weekend, including a grand slam. She has 15 this season, which leads the team and ranks in the top-5 nationally. Hemphill’s 51 RBIs lead the NCAA.
She’s already hit more home runs this season than she did all of last season (13) and she moved into eighth-place on the UA all-time home run list with 37. The school career mark for homers is 60 by All-American Kelly Kretschman, who also holds the single-season UA record with 25.
Bailey has a little more ways to go for the school single-season RBI mark (80) set by Marisa Runyon in 2015. The program record for career RBIs is 264, set by Charlotte Morgan. Hemphill has 140 career RBIs.
Hemphill and the No. 3 Crimson Tide (33-1) host Georgia Tech on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. and will be televised by SEC Network.
