in town for free camps
I've seen this mentioned a few times elsewhere, but I figured it warranted its own thread.
On Thursday 6/4, Athletics is holding a welcome-back party at Alumni Field for Team 38. Per MGoBlue:
The U-M community will gather Thursday to welcome the national runner-up Wolverines back to campus. A 3 p.m. arrival time is anticipated, and fans should gather at Alumni Field around that time. Michigan Athletics will communicate specific arrival details as soon as they are known. Text "SoftballReturn" to 54815 and/or follow @umichsoftball to get accurate, official information throughout the day on Thursday.
I know it's the middle of the afternoon on a weekday, but everyone that can come out should. It would mean a lot to the girls to have a full house to congratulate them on their tremendous season. Plus, a little bird tells me your favorite Alumni Band will even be there.
This was pretty cool.
What a pitching performance!!!!!! 1 win to go!
samdrussBLUE called for it, and it's true - we need a stay calm thread here, not a meltdown one. That game was frustrating as hell, and we missed some big chances, there's no denying it. Still, it's a series for a reason, and this team is not done playing. Last time we dropped the first game of a series, we went on to beat Minny 9-4, 9-1 (6 inn.) on the road. Last time we dropped the first game of a WCWS Finals series, we won the whole damn thing. Let's keep it together until this amazing team has battled through the final out. And even if the worst happens, we're going to tip our damn caps to these women who have worked wonders all year, not melt down. They deserve better.
