Kansas softball to retire Larson-Bradney’s jersey


Kansas University softball plans to retire former KU standout Jill Larson-Bradney’s jersey on Saturday, before the Jayhawks’ game against Texas at Arrocha Ballpark.

Larson-Bradney’s No. 22 jersey is the third KU softball jersey to be retired after Camille Spitaleri and Sheila Connolly’s jerseys were retired on April 22, 2006.

A third baseman and pitcher for the Jayhawks from 1978-81, Larson-Bradney was the first softball All-American in school history after being named to the AIAW First Team in 1981. She was a three-time Big Eight Championship All-Tournament Team selection and helped lead the Jayhawks to the 1979 Big Eight Championship and a runner-up finish in 1981.

KU will play Texas at 5 p.m. Friday, 2 p.m. Saturday and noon Sunday.

I think it is amazing that the softball team still finds the time to honor those players that played in the past. I think it is especially important because the players from the past are some of the main reasons the Kansas softball team is where it is at today. All the former players had a lot to do with the new facility and they are all still a huge part of the team.
