You guys all still remember Michelle Jenneke, right? The Australian track star who went viral for dancing prior to competing in track and field? Yeah, well, Oregon Ducks softball player Haley Cruse can relate.

That’s because over the weekend Cruse, a senior outfielder for the Ducks, went viral on social media for dancing as she prepared to smoke line drives in the batting cage.

Cruse, #26 in your programs, is no flash in the pan either, both social media-wise or as a softball player. She’s collected over 113,000 Instagram followers, and she led Oregon in batting average (.348) and stolen bases (13) during the 2019 season.

That 113,000 number is bound to grow, however, as the video of her dancing in the cage has now been watched over 3.1 MILLION times.

Oregon had an off year in 2019 as team, dropping to 22-30 after making the College Softball World Series in 2018 with a 53-10 record, but her social media followers ain’t care.

In fact, she has gotten many date requests and marriage proposals since her video went viral.

Not everyone was focused on the dancing. She also drew rave reviews for her sweet swing.

And some smart (read: thirsty) folks went ahead and combined their compliments.

It really is.
