Taylor Bump, Michigan softball's team-leader in HR's, returning for fifth season
Michigan softball just missed out on the Women’s College World Series this season, but the Wolverines received some great news for 2022 Monday afternoon.
In a note on Twitter, corner infielder Taylor Bump announced that she is coming back to Ann Arbor for a fifth season in 2022. Bump is able to suit up for one more season due to the blanket waiver provided by the NCAA following the canceled 2020 season due to COVID-19.

Bump was a key contributor to the Wolverines’ success in 2021. She led the team with 12 home runs and finished second on the team in slugging percentage (.675) and OPS (1.093). Bump appeared in 45 games with 44 starts and added 21 runs scored and 31 RBI to her season.
Bump also showed up with a solid showing in postseason play. She had two home runs and two RBI in wins over Seattle and Washington and added another RBI in one of the losses to Washington.
