Bandits sign Kansas star hitter Maggie Hull


The Chicago Bandits have signed Maggie Hull, who was picked in the third round of the 2013 NPF Senior Draft.

Hull, who was the No. 11 overall selection in the draft, just concluded her senior season at the University of Kansas, where she was a three-time All-Big 12 honoree.

"She's another player who excels from the left side of the plate and will be looked at as a table setter for our lineup," general manager Aaron M. Moore said. "If she can carry the same success she had in her four years at KU to the pro league, she's going to have a great season."

While at Kansas, Hull led the Big 12 Conference in 2012 with a .409 batting average, breaking a KU single-season record that stood for more than 30 years. She led her team with 67 hits and scored 46 runs, which tied a Kansas record for the most runs scored in a season.

"I know the Bandits are a successfully run organization with a great stadium and fan base, and I am ready to bring my competitiveness and determination to the line-up and contribute in whatever role to win the 2013 Championship," said Hull, an outfielder.

The Bandits will begin the 2013 season on June 1 with an exhibition game against the Indiana Slammers at The Ballpark at Rosemont. The team's NPF home opener is June 5.
