Completely agree with this!I was looking forward to that. Piper was guilty of over coaching by bringing in Fiser to “start” the 7th. Better to leave Pease in who was crusing and then bring in Fiser if Pease gives up a couple hits. Fresno hits speed better and just came off a 3-run rally off Garcia. It turned out ok but changing just to change to me made no sense with 7-8-9 coming up.
Seeing them go marks the end of an era. A new one has to begin.Sorry, a little late on the posting.....out of town, but caught the game.
Really enjoyed Pease taking control of the game except for one inning
Controversial pitch IMO to Partain with two on for us to tie it up or go ahead. However, she had the right idea with her last at bat....just didn't quite work out for her. Cannot get down on her at all because she has done so much for this team, when needed, in her career as a Gopher.
Absolutely, did not understand the coaching staff's strategy with pitching in the 7th, moving Dray to cleanup and hitting. Yes Dray scored our only run, but her bat was pretty silent during the Championship.
Feel this weekend can only help with Gopher recruiting moving forward. Hanging with UCLA was a great accomplishment for this team.
Super Seniors move on leaving many questions with the remaining roster for next season. They all will be missed.
Well, if you want to get really cynical, which maybe some of us are, you could surmise that the media are owned and run by men, and "real men" don't play women's softball, that's for women. Maybe racism isn't the only thing that's systemic?On the online TV schedule site I look at, it shows that ABC will be showing a super-regionals game this Saturday. They will be showing "Oklahoma vs. Washburn." And some people still say the media shows little respect for college softball!
