Shelby Babcock returned to the Arizona Wildcats this morning, practicing with the team and saying she expected to pitch in the NCAA tournament regionals Friday.

Babcock was released from the hospital Monday with what she described as the “flu and some other stuff” that had bothered her since Thursday.

“I’m going to pitch Friday,” she said.

Babcock worked out with the team, and was expected to throw a bullpen session.

The Wildcats play Baylor on Friday at 12:30 p.m. in the College Station, Texas, regional.
