Florida State Softball
#24 Florida State at Florida A&M
Wednesday, March 21 • 6 p.m.
Tallahassee, Fla. • Moore-Kittles Field

First Pitch (What You Need To Know):
• With its last regular season tournament of the year in the books, the Florida State softball team returns home to play crosstown rival Florida A&M on Wednesday (March 21) at 6 p.m.

• For the second year in a row, the Seminole and Rattlers ended up meeting the FSU Invitational with Florida State prevailing 9-4.

• Tuesday’s meeting with FAMU will be the 99th between the two schools. FSU holds the all-time lead 91-7. The Seminoles lead the series 40-5 on the Florida A&M campus, but the Rattlers have won a game at home against FSU in each of the last two seasons.

• During the first meeting of the season junior pitcher Tiffany McDonald (Belfair, Wash) threw the second no-hitter of her career. McDonald has moved up to tenth in school history with 573.2 innings and ninth at 106 appearances.

• Florida State comes into Tuesday’s game looking to snap a four-game losing streak. FSU won it’s first game at the Judi Garman Classic, 3-1, over No. 12 Washington, but then lost it next four by a total of five runs.

• Sophomore transfer Jessica Gilmore (Fort Walton Beach, Fla.) hit her first home run as a Seminole against Cal State Northridge. It was the first homer since April 16, 2005, when she hit one against Auburn as a member of the Georgia softball team.

• Player of the Year candidate Veronica Wootson (Fontana, Calif.) jumped up to third in FSU history with 171 runs scored and seventh at 248 hits.
