Lady Bears hope to derail mighty, second-ranked Sooners, WacoTrib, It’s scary to think two-time defending national champion Oklahoma might possess a deeper pitching staff and a more explosive offense than it’s ever had.

Softball hosts No. 2 Sooners in Big 12 Showdown | The Baylor Lariat, Baylor softball has spent much of its spring season playing away from home.

The Lady Bears have played just five of their first 26 games at Getterman Stadium, making it difficult to catch a glimpse of them this season.

As Baylor opens conference play against second-ranked and two-time defending national champion Oklahoma this weekend, there won’t be an empty seat in the stadium.

Senior outfielder Jessie Scroggins, who leads the team with a .545 average, said that playing the Sooners is always one of the most exciting matchups of the season and getting to do it at home, is an added bonus.

“It is always exciting to play Oklahoma. They’re one of the best teams in the country and it’s always nice to see how we compete against them,” Scroggins said. “We haven’t been here for awhile and we do have a sellout crowd, so it’s going to be exciting to play in front of them.”

For the Jayhawks, it’s the first time since 2012 that Bill Self has led his team to the Final Four. And while that may seem like a long wait for Kansas’ standards, it’s not even close to some of the droughts that other Big 12 teams have had to endure.
