Former Alabama softball star Montana Fouts made her professional debut for Athletes Unlimited on Tuesday. The pitcher looked like her old Crimson Tide self, despite wearing a navy blue uniform. She started the game for "Team Leach" and struck out four batters across her four innings of work.

Fouts gave up just a single run, to fellow former Crimson Tide star Haylie McCleney who drew a first inning leadoff walk and worked her way around the base path to score. Fouts ended her outing with just one run allowed on three hits with two walks and four strikeouts.

"Team Leach", named for former Tennessee player Aubrey Leach, hit two home runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to secure a 2-1 victory for Fouts. McCleney finished 1-3 at the plate with a single, one strikeout and a walk in a losing effort.

Crimson Tide Quote of the Day:

“I had a lot going on in my life, so I was really ready to let football go. My dad just kind of convinced me ‘Just see how good you are.’ I wanted to see how it is going up against some of the best athletes, some of the best receivers that come to the University of Alabama. I just wanted to see how good I was. He just said he believed in me, he always believed in me and my abilities. He said, ‘You’re a great football player, so you might as well give it a shot and see where things go.’”— Levi Wallace, who went from being a walk-on player to the Buffalo Bills, about his late father.
