Tuesday softball roundup, or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Hutch Smashing Piñatas

Submitted by ಠ_ಠ on May 26th, 2015 at 1:28 PM

The softball team left for Oklahoma City and the WCWS today, ahead of their Thursday match up with Alabama (7:00 pm ET, ESPN2). The ASA/USA Player of the Year award (softball Heisman) will be announced tonight and Michigan's Sierra Romero -- already the recipient of ESPNW's POY award and MGoBoard's Chick that Knocks the Fuck Out of the Ball award -- is one of three finalists. Here are some tweets and reading material for those interested.

I like that the "Team #" thing has stuck around.  

It didn't work out for Hoke, but that does not mean he did not leave something to the Michigan legacy.  Like Amaker and the maize student section which has bled over to football and other sports, or Red getting playes to wear the winged helmet which has been picked up by other helmet-wearing Michigan sports.

Everybody contributes something.
