NORMAN, Okla.- A former OU softball superstar made her first professional pitching start on Saturday.

Keilani Ricketts got the nod for the USSSA Pride in their game against the New York/New Jersey Comets.

Ricketts pitched three innings, gave up three runs and struck out four batters.

She did not get a decision.

Ricketts led the Sooners to the NCAA national title this season and had planned to play this summer for USA Softball.

A contract dispute with USA Softball led Ricketts to sign with the Pride.
