The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns Softball Program has added another player this summer in the form of former freshman of the year from the University of Toledo, Bailey Curry. Curry is a rising sophomore and a hard hitting infielder who was also named to the NFCA All-Great Lakes Region team, led Toledo in average (.362), hits (64), home runs (14), RBI (46), walks (34), slugging (.633) and on-base percentage (.465) during her first season in collegiate athletics.

Home runs and power were something that the Cajuns lacked last season and with the addition of Curry's 14 dingers she ranked Top 10 in the country as a freshman in 2018.

When asked about the addition of Curry coach Gerry Glasco said,

“Bailey will bring a strong powerful bat for the middle of our lineup, she is also a great clutch hitter who hits for a high average. She was among the top run-producing freshmen in the Division I ranks last spring, we believe she will have a dramatic impact on our team scoring next spring.”

Curry is a native of Frankfort, Ky., who ranked Top 150 in the country in hits, home runs, RBI's, total bases, slugging percentage and walks.

In addition, she was a three-time Eighth Region Player of the Year and first team All-State selection at Anderson County High School. She finished her high school career with a Kentucky state-record of 75 home runs.
