Macie Wilde signs with Delta State

Published: Saturday, November 17, 2012 at 02:06 AM.

Wilde said she looked at Northwest Florida State and Faulkner State in Montgomery, Ala., but in the end the decision to attend Delta State was an easy one.

“I just liked the community there and the people there,” she said. I was looking at education mostly, but I was also looking at the sports and how they were doing.”

One of the components that went into Wilde’s decision was the fact that Delta State is far enough from Baker that she will be able to get the full college experience of being away from home.

On the field, Wilde has a wide range of skills that should allow her to step in and be successful early.

She’s a left-handed pitcher and she also can play the outfield and first base.

As a junior her pitching was limited as she recovered from shoulder surgery, but that didn’t stop her from swinging the bat at close to a .370 clip. Equally impressive was the fact that she only struck out twice last season and had an on-base percentage of close to .700.

Carlisle said all those things should help Wilde succeed at Delta State.
