WACO, Texas - The Baylor softball team will open the 2006 fall season with a "Meet the Team" scrimmage on Saturday, Sept. 23, beginning at 10:15 a.m. Afterwards, fans will have the opportunity to meet the 2007 Lady Bears and hear coaches and players talk about the upcoming season.
At the scrimmage, fans have the option of purchasing a sack lunch at a cost of $8 dollars. If fans are interested in attending, please RSVP to Debbie Williams by noon on Wednesday, Sept. 20, at 254-710-4659.
The Baylor softball team returns eight players from last year's squad, including NFCA All-Americans Chelsi Lake and Brette Reagan, that finished 38-22 and advanced to the NCAA Corvallis Regional final.
In addition, the Lady Bears welcome eight newcomers to this season's squad as Baylor has one of the most highly touted newcomer classes in the country heading into the 2007 season.
Following the scrimmage, Baylor will continue its fall preparation for the 2007 season by hosting the Baylor Fall Tournament on Oct. 6-7 at Getterman Stadium and conclude the fall season with a trip to the Spring Klein Invitational on Oct. 13-15 in Houston, Texas.
