I was just looking back at the Hello: Haylie Wagner post by MGoSoftball and dang - I didn't realize she is 6'0"...  That's some good leverage!

I don't really know softball, but looks like she threw a lot of pitches in the top of the 4th.  Struck out 2 looking, gave up a hit (and runner stole 2nd), and hit a batter.  Nice job getting out of the jam, though with runners on 1st/2nd and 2 outs after a ground out.

well, that's some major discrepancy.  I'll trust mgoblue on this one.  Incidentally, the alabama pitcher, jackie traina, is listed at 5'11" on the alabama website.

As for the game, Michigan goes down 1-2-3 in the bottom of the 4th.  Top of the 5th coming up.

is definitely on the shorter side. 5'7 is the same height as the shortest pitcher on MGB's team, and she's 3/4 on Michigan. Driesenga is 6'1, Payne is 5'10, Wagner is 5'7 and Speierman is 5'6.

Monica Abbot (one of the all-time NCAA greats) clocks in at 6'3 190. Now that's a big pitcher.

MGB has been teaching me some pitching this week, and I've been asking her what she thinks, and she buys into big hands, long arms, strong and long legs. She's 5'10 though, so she doesn't have much of a reason to disagree with conventional wisdom.
