Well, it is a California school - they do love them some softball out there.  It's kinda like how some of those small East Coast schools like Iona, Manhattan, or St. Joseph's get better b-ball crowds than lower-tier major conference schools.

Definitely enjoying it, hope we can get our bats going soon!

You have to always ask yourself something in these instances...

"compared to what?"

In California, below 50 is reserved for winter evenings, and 40 is cold. Don't be one of those Califirnia haters...people visit here from cold places and bitch up a storm if the temps fall. We are not in Michigan where 40 is nearly spring. We pay a shit ton of taxes to live in an awesome place, and we don't like when it's cold.

Top 3rd, still 0-0.

A child named Amber just won a race and a coupon to Jersey Mike's.

Sweet still hosing down runners from behind the plate.

I am taking tomorrow off for my anual one day trip to Fullerton to catch the Softball Team.

I don't know if anyone on the blog is in So Cal and attending..but I look forward to this every year.

Michigan takes a 2-0 lead but leave the bases loaded with Romo on deck, which is a bit of a shame. Thought for a second that she might have an opportunity to swing the bat.

Don't want to jinx it, but Wagner and the defense has been very good and 2-0 may very well be enough.

Great job by this team tonight. A true road game at night, at a stadium with a pretty decent atmosphere, against a team that, while not a powerhouse, is likely better than most Big Ten teams. Having to battle through a lot of frustration offensively before finally finding their groove in a major way. This is a good win.

I second that strongly!  I have been really disappointed to not be able to attend a game the last two years, but I finally will be able to make a couple this year.  So excited to finally see Romero live in action, after having seen her on TV a number of times.  And the rest of the team as well, of course.

9-0 is your final.  CSF loads 'em up in the Bottom of the 7th, but can't get a run across as a soft floater to 1st seals the deal.  Major challenges in the next couple of days for the team, so they did well to keep their focus and get the job done against a decent mid-major.
