"SOFTBALL IS LIFE - THE REST IS JUST DETAILS"
Live it - Learn it - Love it.
"One who is out on a called third strike has no one to blame but themself. There is no excuse one can give to justify standing there and letting the ball go by when you already have two strikes against you."
The News In Sports
2016 Home Run Tally (Over the fence at Whips): Ellie Dinkel, 1; Sofia Reda, 3; Marissa Pankoff, 3; Lilliana Alvarez, 1; Olivia Buzil, 1; Abigail Wagner, 1 (Minors); Allie Grengs, 3; Nicole Trznadel, 1; Allie Foleno, 1; Julisa Galvan, 1; Hope Springer, 3; Anna Brandt, 1; Margaret Lopez, 1; Hannah Galloway, 3; Gabby Kouzoukas, 1; Calli Hilgenberg, 1; Neena Franklin, 4; Katie Groppe (Majors)
In tournament play:
Emeralds, 8 - Pretty Reckless, 7. The Emeralds handed Pretty Reckless their walking papers after building a big lead and then hanging on to beat the front runners. Despite having a 7-1 advantage at one point, Reckless charged over the hill for a comeback aided by a three run homer off the bat of Jada Miskdeen. But a strong defense from the Greens was able to stop the rally just short where it needed to be and the Emeralds went home with the gold.
Lady Cubbies, 15 - Orange Outlaws, 2. The Outlaws had both hands tied behind their backs in this one, missing key players against a powerful assault by the blues. The Cubbies ended this one early with everyone in on the act at the plate. Abi Wagner put one just over the wall, hitting the top of the fence and getting a favorable bounce to qualify for the home run derby. The Outlaws have to pack it up and call it a year.
Chupacabra, 14 - Purple Haze, 2. Somebody must have eaten an extra bowl of Wheaties yesterday because Chupacabra surprised the crowd by demolishing Purple Haze with flurry of hits combined with some very nice defense to hold the Purple Gang down. Tamia Manning, called up to replace the missing Gianna Gordon on the mound, did her job in keeping the Haze off the bases and was backed up by everyone behind her. Hannah Galloway hit number three over the fence to highlight the drive. The Haze are now out of the running with the loss.
