LSU Softball to Host NPF’s Pride During Fall Workouts
BATON ROUGE, La. – Coming off of its second-straight Women’s College World Series appearance in June, the LSU softball team got back to work last week with the beginning of fall workouts, as the Tigers will prepare for the 2017 season with a slate of scrimmages against local and regional collegiate teams and highlighted by a visit by the NPF’s USSSA Pride in October.
LSU, returning five positional starters and all three of its starting pitchers from the 2016 team that won 50-plus games for the second consecutive year, will have scrimmages for most of the month of October, with the key matchup against the Pride coming on October 16th at 4 p.m. at Tiger Park.
The Pride finished the National Pro Fastpitch season with a 40-14 record and earned the top seed for the league’s annual championship series for the third consecutive year and fifth time in the last seven seasons. The Pride will be on the second leg of their fall tour series which began in September in the northeast, before moving to the south for the month of October.
The contest between the Tigers and Pride will be free and open to fans, as will the rest of the contests.
