Baylor Softball's Friudenberg Named All-American by NFCA

Bears freshman earns third-team honors after solid rookie campaign


WACO, Texas – Baylor's Shelby Friudenberg became the first freshman to earn NFCA All-America honors since Brette Regan in 2006, as Friudenberg was named a third-team all-American Wednesday.

Friudenberg helped Baylor to a 41-17 record by belting 18 home runs in her freshman campaign. Eighteen home runs was the most by a Baylor freshman (12, Regan, 2006), and it marks the second-highest single-season home run total by a Baylor player.

The Bruceville, Texas native finished the season with a  .357 batting average, eight doubles and a .449 on-base percentage. Her .752 slugging percentage was also the second-highest total in school history.

“It's exciting to see Shelby join the elite class in our sport. She takes tremendous pride in her game and was a great leader for us on the field,” said Baylor head softball coach Glenn Moore. “Shelby gave and will continue to give our fans great excitement.”

Friudenberg's numbers were no fluke as she hit .373 this season with 11 home runs and 27 RBI in 24 games against teams that made the 2015 NCAA Tournament.

Baylor's program has now had eight All-Americans with Friudenberg's nod and 11 honors overall with Reagan a three-time selection and Whitney Canion a two-time honoree.

Friudenberg was a First-Team All-Big 12 selection, a member of the All-Big 12 Freshman Team, and a Second-Team All-NFCA Region selection.
