Louisville softball is sending Paige Schindler and Jordyn Wolfe to the inaugural Florida Gulf Coast League this summer. In a time where seasons were cut short due to COVID-19, this will be an opportunity to allow many of the student-athletes to get extra playing time in 2020.
The Florida Gulf Coast League will see a 30-game season for baseball and 25-game season for softball. All games will be held in Sarasota, Fla., where many MLB teams go for spring training.
The season is set to begin June 18, with a three-day minicamp beforehand.
Both Schindler and Wolfe will play for the Manatee Squeeze.
Schindler is a rising senior at Louisville who saw time as a relief pitcher. She has also been a pinch runner in games, due to her speed. Schindler delivered the final strikeout in a bases loaded situation to help the Cards get an early season win.
Wolfe is a rising senior and was a starting outfielder for the Cards. Wolfe was third on the team with a .324 batting average. She played a big part in a 4-3 win against Illinois with a multi-hit performance.
All games will be aired through StreamLiveTampa. You can see the entire schedule here.
The NCAA has allowed student-athletes in football, men's basketball, and women's basketball to return to campus at the beginning of June. Some of the requirements include self-quarantining for 14 days and undergoing COVID-19 testing.
For Louisville, the student-athletes will go to a drive-up testing facility at Cardinal Stadium. Over 100 student-athletes, coaches, and staff are expected to be tested in the first wave.
Once completed and cleared, student-athletes will be able to begin voluntary workout without coaches present.
