Ragin' Cajun softballer Shellie Landry grew up in Broussard as a die-hard UL softball fan. She dreamed of one day playing for the Cajuns. After starring on the softball diamond at STM, she realized her dream when signing with her hometown team. Today, she'll play for them on softball's biggest stage...the Women's College World Series.

Landry has a new outlook on softball. This season, her Mom battled breast cancer, putting into perspective the game she loves. (Today, her Mom is cancer free)

The sophomore outfielder joined my show yesterday from Oklahoma City to discuss life, her Mom, teammates, comradery, and more.

Take a listen.

Louisiana begins their quest from the Women's College World Series tonight at 6:00. Pre-game on ESPN1420 and espn1420.com begins tonight at 5:40. Steve Peloquin has the call.
