Former Bulldog Hannah Day signs with Troy

Published: Monday, December 30, 2013 at 10:11 AM.

She led the Raiders with 77 hits and 187 at bats. She tied for the team lead with eight home runs, was second in batting average with a .412 average and second in runs batted in with 59.  

Hannah said playing for Raider softball coach Jack Byerly will help her as she moves to Division I softball in the Sunbelt Conference.

"The transition will be easier because I know if I can handle coach Byerly I can handle anybody," she said. "He's tough, but he's a good coach, he really is.

"Everything he does, he does it to get us to the next level."

Byerly isn't the only tough coach she has had to put up with through the years.

Dexter Day, a former college and minor league baseball player, admits he has been tough on Hannah.

"She's put in a lot of time (working on the field and in the weight room) and she's had to put up with me too," Dexter said. "I'm not just the easiest person to play for. I think looking back on it, and she can speak for herself, but she's glad that she did what she did to get to where she's at today."
