LSU softball pitcher Kelsee Selman announced via Twitter that she will finish her playing career at Baylor.
The sophomore posted a picture of herself on social media wearing a Baylor shirt while showing the school’s “bear claw” hand signal along with the message: “So excited to announce that I will be finishing me (sic) softball career at Baylor University.”
LSU spokesman Clyde Verdin did not confirm the transfer at the time but said the team does not comment on players no longer with the program.
Selman, a native of Lufkin, Texas — about three hours from Baylor’s campus in Waco — leaves LSU after its best season in program history, during which the Tigers finished third at the Women’s College World Series.
While Selman produced a team-low 1.47 ERA and a 9-0 record, she also appeared in the fewest games (15) of the Tigers’ four pitchers. She allowed 19 runs on 41 hits while striking out 72 batters.
Selman won’t be the only former Tiger in Waco. She joins Bears coach Glenn Moore, who was head coach at LSU from 1998-2000, where he led the program to two Southeastern Conference regular-season titles and an SEC tournament title.
Selman will also be coached by LSU Athletics Hall of Famer and three-time All-American Britni Sneed-Newman. Sneed-Newman is at the top of nearly every all-time list for LSU, including appearances (175), wins (120) and strikeouts (1,370).
