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 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.
