Galindo Returns for the 2012 Season


ROSEMONT, Ill. – Chicago Bandits GM, Aaron M. Moore, announced the re-signing of veteran utility player, Vicky Galindo for the 2012 season.

“Vicky is a key member of the Bandits,” stated Moore.  “She has the ability to play several positions, both infield and outfield, and she can handle the bat.

“Vicky also brings a veteran presence and leadership quality that will be very important on this year’s team.  We are happy to have her back for another season in Rosemont.”

Named to the 2005 All-NPF team following her rookie season, Galindo saw limited action with the Bandits over the next several years due to her commitment to the US National Team. As a member of Team USA, she won a silver medal at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China.

In 2011, she spent the entire season with the Bandits posting a .231 on-base percentage and scored three runs and stole two bases.

While in Sulphur, La. for the 2011 Championship Series, Galindo emerged as a key player for the Bandits. Coming off of the bench, Galindo finished the series against the Pride going 4-for-5 with two runs helping the Bandits clinch their second NPF Championship as an organization.

 “Rosemont is my home away from home and the Bandits are my second family,” said Galindo. “Coming back as a veteran to teach the new rookies the ropes is an honor. It hardly feels like eight seasons, but I’m excited to continue my career as a member of the Bandits.”

Galindo is currently serving as the head coach at West Valley College in Saratoga, Ca.

Tickets for the 2012 season are on sale now, including an opening weekend matchup against the USSSA Pride. For more information, or to order tickets, visit or call 877-722-6348.
