Summer Softball Returns -- SATURDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

Softball Pair Plays Summer Ball


Though the collegiate softball and baseball seasons were scrapped early and Major League Baseball still hasn't figured out what they're doing, diamond sports will return this summer and two Louisville players will take part. The Florida Gulf Coast League, an annual collegiate summer league that plays home to softball and baseball players in the offseason, will get underway next week as Florida opens its doors to sporting events once more. We already knew that Florida would be playing host to the NBA season as well as the MLS tournament so it's no surprise that they would find a home for diamond sports as well.

Paige Schindler and Jordyn Wolfe will be the two representatives from Louisville softball heading south. The pair will actually report tomorrow with camp set to start on Monday and the regular season beginning on 6/18. The FGC Softball League will have a 24-game regular season with a postseason playoff and all-star events. 

Paige Schindler and Jordyn Wolfe Studio PhotosPlaying in summer leagues is almost a given for college diamond sport athletes, but things have obviously been a bit more strange this year. Many baseball leagues are in the Northeast, none of which I have seen mention that they would be playing this year. As such, we have seen many fewer players announce that they'll be playing summer ball. I am a bit surprised that no Louisville baseball players will be participating in this Florida League, but perhaps it has to do with some team decision that we don't know about.

In any case, we wish Paige and Jordyn the best while they continue to hone their skills and hope that they are able to stay safe and healthy in these uncertain times. We'll look forward to seeing their continued development when they return to Ulmer Stadium next spring.

Cardinal Couple Radio Hour


A Pop Quiz for Computer Architecture Reviewers | SIGARCHWe should have a full house this morning on the Cardinal Couple Radio Hour Podcast, where we'll have sports topics to discuss as well as a weekly quiz. We had mascots last week, and Jared stole the show from a remote location. Paulie has committed to no repeat topics in back-to-back weeks so you'll have to join to find out what this week's quiz will be about. Join us as we bring you the latest happenings in the joy and excitement of Louisville women's athletics. Check out the Cardinal Couple YouTube Channel at 11AM for the live show or listen to the recorded version any time after the show ends around noon.

Until next time, Go Cards!

  1. What city is the Manatee Squeeze out of and will fans be able to watch on line? This is exciting.

    Another night ended making sure shelves are filled. About to hit the sack, so I'll miss the live broadcast but catch the rebroadcast. A tough transition back to third shift after being off a couple of weeks, but, traffic's light, so that's cool.

    Keep the dynasty alive Jared in the quiz and beat the field!

    1. We were just looking at that. Their twitter account has the location listed as Bradenton, FL. Paging David Watson. :D

  2. Hey Ho! It's Dave O!

    I haven't been active much lately with comments here but read each day, so when the Cardinal Couple/Batman spotlights shines in the Bradenton skies, I'll usually answer.

    Here's the roster as I know it for the Squeeze:

    Stormy Kotzelnick, infield (Washington)
    Sommer Baker, infield (Florida Atlantic)
    Paige Schindler, pitcher (Louisville)
    Meagan Ricks, infield (Florida Gulf Coast)
    Sara Berthiaume, outfield (Florida Atlantic)
    Jenna Greene, pitcher (Presbyterian)
    Abi Stuart, catcher (Clemson)
    Melina Livingston, utility (Penn State)
    Taylor Johnson, catcher (Wisconsin)
    Alexis Johns, outfield (Florida International)
    Jordyn Wolfe, outfield (Louisville)
    Nikki Cuchran, infield (Northwestern)
    Kenna Wilkey, pitcher (Northwestern)
    Jordyn Kadlub, utility (South Florida)

    No attendance details that I'e heard yet, the league will be broadcast on the internet. Stream Live Tampa, and I'll scout that out later today. Miss Sarasota Field around here is the spot where they'll play, I would think. A very nice diamond.

    Maybe they'll let me stand behind the outfield, six feet away from other watchers and the players. My days as bat-boy are gone, it's that running back and forth from home to the dugout that gets me. Especially when I can't remember just which dugout to run back to.

    I remain (last I checked)
    Dave O
