BIRMINGHAM, Ala.--With the 2013 season fast approaching, the UAB softball team is welcoming fans to an open scrimmage at the UAB Softball Field Saturday at 12 p.m. CT.

The Blazers capped the 2012 campaign with their third straight NCAA Championship appearance, and finished with an overall record of 37-22. UAB's 17-7 mark in C-USA action gave the squad a second-place finish for the first time in program history.

UAB boats the largest senior class in program history this season, with Hailey Glynn, Kate Armstrong, Chandler Orr, Whitney Fletcher, Anna Kimbrell, Lauren Webster, and Maegan Hornsby leading the squad.

New to the team this year is the three-member freshman class of Ashley Johnson, Caitlin Attfield, and Kelly Britt.

The Blazers will open the 2013 season in Honolulu, Hawaii, at the 2013 Oceanic Time Warner Cable Paradise Classic. UAB will first take on Washington on Thursday, Feb. 7, with the game slated for 3 p.m. HT.
