Here are a couple of major developments taking place in the coming days...

Play in the Big 12 conference gets underway Wednesday night, with Texas A&M hosting Baylor in a battle of nationally ranked squads; both were in the Women's College World Series a year ago. A full slate of conference games will then be played on Friday and Saturday (no games are on Easter Sunday). Also, I noticed from the Aggie softball page that pitcher Amanda Scarborough is writing a blog this season.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT UPDATE: Aggies win big. FURTHER UPDATE: Amanda Scarborough is out for the season, due to a foot injury originally suffered a month ago. Scarborough's injury -- the exact nature of which was not specified in the news release -- is said to be to the Lisfranc area of her right foot.

Out west, Cal State Fullerton will be hosting the Judi Garman Classic, from Wednesday to Saturday. Top teams in the field include Arizona, Arizona State, DePaul, Michigan, and Washington. The host Titans own a recent upset win over highly ranked UCLA.
