Kirby Smart makes elite time for Georgia softball team, Bulldogs headed to Florida State

ATHENS — The Georgia softball program will turn into the so-called “front porch” of the university this week when it plays Florida State on Thursday and Friday night on ESPN2 in NCAA tournament Super Regional play.

Bulldogs’ two-time championship football coach Kirby Smart has taken note, and on Wednesday he took time out to meet with the team before they travelled to Tallahassee.

Smart’s influence has spread to other UGA coaches and student athletes — including softball — as they strive to become “elite.”

Second-year UGA coach Baldwin said he appreciated Smart’s gesture, and he knows his players did, too.
