After finishing her collegiate career at the University of Michigan, Findlay was drafted by the Chicago bandits in 2008, where she spent three seasons and won an NPF championship in 2008. For two consecutive seasons (2009 & 2010), she was named to the All-NPF team. In 2009 Findlay was named to the All-NPF team after leading the league in home runs with 11 and RBIs with 27 while leading the Bandits in walks on the season with 18 and her 18 runs scored were good for fourth on the team. In 2010 she batted a low .248 but made up for it by hitting 11 homeruns which was good for 2nd under her teammate Stacy May and having 25 RBI which tied Kelly Kretchman for 2nd in the league. After the 2010 she was shockingly released by Chicago and then signed by the USSSA Pride. Samantha will join the USSSA Pride for the 2011 season in hopes of helping them win a second NPF Championship in a row.
