Sarah Hudek leaves baseball behind for softball success at A&M – Houston Chronicle

The baseball career of Hudek, the daughter of former Astros reliever John Hudek, lasted another eight years and culminated with a season on the mound at Bossier (La.) Parrish Community College a year ago. “Junior college is its own little world,” Sarah Hudek said of pitching in front of sparse crowds and in the no-frills environment of community college baseball. […] Hudek, who experienced her share of success in the male-dominated sport of college baseball, traded that barren setting for the frills and thrills that come with playing softball in the Southeastern Conference. Hudek walked into an ideal situation, joining and quickly contributing to an Aggies team (45-10) that will play Tennessee (47-10) in an NCAA Tournament super regional starting 5 p.m. Friday. Hudek, a former George Ranch baseball player, was bitten by the baseball bug as a youngster hanging around her dad’s batting cages and field near Sugar Land – John Hudek’s All-Star Baseball Academy, which is now closed.
