STARKVILLE, Miss. - Mississippi State softball Head Coach Vann Stuedeman announced the signing of Alabama prep star Caroline Seitz Tuesday afternoon. Seitz, a 5-foot-9 infielder from Birmingham, Ala., hit 19 home runs as a junior this past spring at Oak Mountain High School, the same high school that current MSU star Jessica Cooley attended.

"Caroline is continuing the great relationship with Mississippi State and Oak Mountain High School," Stuedeman said. "We are thrilled to have her representing the Maroon and White and I know the Cooley family will be very proud. We are going to dub her the 'Birmingham Bomber.'"

Under the direction of Danny DuBose this past spring as a junior, Seitz hit .494 (86-for-174) with a .529 on-base percentage and a .917 slugging percentage. In 56 games, the infielder cranked out 19 home runs, hit 18 doubles, racked up 69 RBIs, scored 50 runs and swiped 16 bases. Defensively, the Birmingham native recorded a .920 fielding percentage. While Seitz will play for Stuedeman next year, her current coach at Oak Mountain, Kellie Eubanks, played for Stuedeman in college from 2006-09.

"I chose Mississippi State because I believe in Coach Stuedeman," said Seitz, who chose MSU over Missouri and Tennessee. "She is such a supportive coach and I feel as if she would do anything for me as a player, a student and a person."

Seitz, who will make her Bulldog debut in the 2013-14 season, is also a key infielder for the Birmingham Bolts fastpitch travel team, coached by Richard Shea.
