shows I can activate MORE season tickets but I have not received anything in email or snail mail.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||End of 5||
Michigan 1, Washington 0.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Meeeeechigan scores.||
|2 weeks 3 days ago||With Haylie out||
the late game last night/early today is going to affect us for sure.
The "IF" game is tomorrow.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Yes||
That is why we love this game so much. With Haylie being out, it hurts a tad but not impossible.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Washington gets the||
leadoff runner on from a walk and gets advanced to 2nd but that is all. Sara is on fire.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Washington out 1-2-3||
still scoreless. Its going to be a 1-run game. The team with the most errors will lose.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Ashley||
gets caught stealing. 3 outs
|2 weeks 3 days ago||back to back Ks||
for Washington (Amy and Lauren) 2 outs
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Ashley gets on||
via error by SS. Nice hard hit tthough. E6
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Washington||
gets a runner to 2nd but thats it. Still scoreless.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Double elimination||
so the "if" game will be on Monday. The Finals would start on Tuesday then.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||In the top of the 8th||
and every inning thereafter, the batter who made the last out of the previous inning gets placed on 2nd base. The next batter is up just like normal but there is a runner on 2nd with no outs (obviously).
The runner on second has a 43% chance of scoring. Typically the coach will but the runner over to 3rd. Then the runner is now in scoring position and can score on a base hit or sac fly.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||This is to protect||
against a bad hop.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||This is why||
I LOVE the International Tie Breaker.
I would bet anyone that the NCAA adopts the International Tie breaker because of this game. Tornados, game cancellations, and now a marathon.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Well lets hope we get||
in the first two games tomorrow and then let the rains come but no TORNADO.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||The underhand||
motion is natural for the arm. The muscles do get stretched but not tore like baseball.
I have seen pitchers throw 150 pitches per game in back to back games. Its not uncommon in summer leagues and at the JC level where teams have only one pitcher.
Conditioning and stamina is way more important. Usually the smaller girls tire more quickly than the larger (Ricketts, Traina) types.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Hell||
you may even get in a power nap. I like all softball so I will watch it all.
I have been to a few Tennessee practices so I guess I am pulling for them.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Dickerson has been||
the best since Ernie. Frank did a bad job, Jim thinks he is cute with his "nice area" schtick, the Seattle Boys (forget their names) were just barely ok.
What about Doug Karsh? I see him at the Softball games all the time. He is certainly knowledgeable about M sports and knows the campus.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Yea but....||
we have a secret weapon that no one else has......Coach Hutch
|2 weeks 3 days ago||We can||
beat her again. We need to get our bats moving. Lyndsay needs to get on base.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Hey, I have||
been to Broken Arrow. My MIL is from Poteau and surrounding areas. Nice area (in my best Jim Price voice).
|2 weeks 4 days ago||There are||
4 fields available to play on. However there is only 1 showcase stadium.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||^^^^^^^^^^^^^||
A True Michigan Man. I laughed out loud at this one. +1 to you good Sir.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||The team is currently||
in a tornado shelter and safe. They are being well cared for.
We all need to say a prayer for ALL the teams and visitors. The field is expected to take a DIRECT HIT in about 20 minutes.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Text messages are NOT||
going through. The lines are down.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||The National Weather Service||
called for a Tornado Emergency for the Oklahoma City area. There are a few ppl trying to text some of the team to see if they are ok. The tornado path is directed at the softball complex but the team SHOULD not be there unless they are watching the other games.
I will post on this thread if I find out anything. Thank God I did not venture down there today.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Lets get out of this||
ladies. Damn it all to hell.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I will certainly||
get that for you. A study was performed recently by a former Minny softball player going for her Masters in Statistics (IIRC). Her paper is a coach's dream.
My personal data shows about 40% of runners on second base score on a sinlge. But my data is skewed because I do not have D1 level talent.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Hi there R,||
I saw that too. What the hell was she seeing that the rest of the world was watching?
