FLORESVILLE -- Tori Bayer has been mowing down batters since she was 9 years old, and has been doing it for Floresville since she was a freshman. After playing her senior season in early 2012, Bayer will shift her focus a bit, as she prepares to compete at the next level, as a member of the Lubbock Christian University Lady Chaparrals softball team.

Tori signed her letter of intent Nov. 9 to attend school and play softball for the Lady Chaps. She said she considered other schools, including the University of Texas at Tyler, but ultimately chose LCU because of the strength of the softball program.

“I’m very excited,” she said of her decision. “I’ve been waiting for this a long time.”

Tori wants to study physical therapy, and is also excited about the program her school of choice has to offer. But it is of course softball that has her the most excited. In addition to taking the mound for the Jaguars, Tori has been playing club ball for years, and has faced collegiate teams in the past. She knows there will be challenges, but she stands ready to face them head-on.

“I love being in that circle,” she said. “I have an amazing feeling when I’m playing, and I’m very excited about playing for Lubbock Christian.”

But Tori isn’t the only one excited, and her parents expressed how they were feeling moments before her signing.

“I’m very proud of her,” Tori’s mother, Diane, said. “She has been working hard for many years. She deserves all of this.”

“I’m just very proud of her,” Tori’s father, Kenneth, said.

Tori was quick to give her thanks to Coach Billy “Doc” Marshall, and all of the coaches that helped her along the way.

In 89 game appearances on the pitcher’s mound, Tori tallied 52 wins, and threw 58 complete games. She tossed three no-hitters in three years, and has a career ERA of just 1.07. Tori has faced nearly 2,000 batters at Floresville, and has allowed just 162 hits. She also has more than 760 strikeouts to her credit.

The right-hander is also an accomplished hitter, with a career batting average of .361. She has jacked 9 home runs, 14 triples, 39 doubles, and 72 RBIs. She is also savvy on the base path, having successfully stolen base on 8 of 10 attempts. She has an on-base percentage of .462 and a slugging percentage of .751.
