The Northwestern Wildcats Home Opener is today. The Wildcats host city rival Loyola at Sharon J. Drysdale Field at 3 PM.
When the Wildcats take the field, Jordyn Rudd will be behind home plate. The senior catcher was a workhorse last season, starting all 47 games. She also led all Big Ten catchers in batting average (.329) and hits (51), while making the Defensive All-Big Ten team.
In her career, #38 has started 130 games, hitting .315 with 13 HRs, 102 RBIs and 57 runs scored. She also sports a sparkling .992 fielding average.
Jordyn sent a shout out to me earlier this year. Thank you to Jordyn. I appreciate the support. In turn, I encourage all to check out the Wildcats at NUSports.com.
