New Softball thread - Louisville Slugger Classic
 
Now that the cupcake part of our schedule is over, it's time to start a new softball thread. Beginning tonight with our game against #3 ASU in the Louisville Slugger Classic at Tempe, AZ, 24 of our next 40 games will be against teams who made the NCAA's last year.

The softballers currently sport a 13-2 record with strong pitching, good D and timely hitting being the hallmarks of this year's team composed of a good mix of great young players and savvy vets much like Dawn Staley's basketball team.

Currently, this year's edition has 5 players hitting over .300 not including 3 vets(Hathorn, Hawkins & Struett) who are all just rounding into form. All 3 hit .290 or better last year.

Enough of that sports reporter jazz. Wanna talk a little gamecock. Ladies, I don't care about the tan, but I expect to see a little swagger in your rear ends when you come back from 'Zona.

Only one way that's gonna happen. Everyone's gonna expect the southern belles to play 'friends with benefits' with 'em. Instead, when you step on the Sun Devils' field, soak in the ambiance, go commando on everybody's ass, bury your spurs to the bone, keep 'em buried 'til you've heard Yogi's friend sing four times & bring the ambiance of a winner back with you.

I'll be more than happy with a split in the first two games . Minnesota has a win over LSU and I believe their only loss was to Florida . If we don't win one of those then I would hope to at least go 2-2 .

scfp, you messin' with my dream? If reality differs, I'll deal with it when it gets here, not before. If you don't humor this old man, I might go senile on you. LOL.

No score thru two & a half.

Slow the ball down & find the zone by keeping your eyes on the prize thru contact, Ladies. It really is that simple.

Marvelous D by Hawkins & Snaer gets Blue out of a jam in the bottom of the third.
0-0 going to the fourth.

Two run homer by Chelsea Hawkins in the 4th . I didn't realize Dallas Escobedo still pitched for Arizona State . Seems like I saw her on TV in the CWS about ten years ago . USC leads 2-0 going to the bottom of the 4th .

Two vets come thru in the top of the fourth. You-know-who takes another one for the team & C Hawkins parks one. 2-0 Ladycocks going to the bottom of the fourth.

Could it be a family thing for the Escobedoes, scfp?

Man I didn't know that big girl Dallas was still pitching for them. She must have been a freshmen when they won it all a few years ago.

WTG, Chelsea! She's 3-3 tonight. Double off the top of the fence.

Shit we are falling apart. It is now 3-2 after we hit the lead off batter and then they hit a long ball.
