Baylor softball team set to open the season

WACO, Texas The Baylor softball team begins play in the 2018 season Friday in Waco when they host Northwestern State. The Lady Bears and Demons will meet once on Friday night and twice on Saturday in their season opening series.

Baylor is coming off one of the best seasons in program history and a trip to the College World Series. Many players from that team are back again this season along with some new faces that hope to make an impact.

Shelby Friudenberg enters her senior season as one of the nation's most feared sluggers and says they hope to build on last year and go even further once they get to the World Series.

For head coach Glenn Moore the opening weekend is special, the Lady Bears are hosting his alma mater. Moore says he enjoys that as long as his Lady Bears get three wins.
