Swung by the renovated softball stadium for a few half-innings Saturday. The new press box, at field level, puts you pretty much in the backstop position.
The first games at FIU Softball Stadium, the Felsberg Memorial, were this weekend's coming out for freshman first base Stephanie Texeira also. The Panthers went 4-1, losing only 1-0 to DePaul in the championship game. Texeira, a Gulliver Prep graduate, went 10 for 14 with four extra base hits (all doubles) and five RBI.
For this, Texeira was named Conference USA Player of the Week.
