As I’ve said many, many times Mowins and her sidekicks are very biased in their coverage of softball games. The Florida - Alabama game will be about Kelly Barnhill. However, they won’t mention that 95% of her pitches are illegal.The announcers were sloppy in love with ok
Well. Now the gators
....yeah...she should have challenged outfielders arm .. but if you watch girls softball....you often see a play here or there that appears makable that determines game... in 3 rd texas game texas outfielder dropped fly ball..Bama scored several runs after...in Oklahoma game on first run..bama runner should have been called out at first...That was a tough game to lose. I like Murphy's aggressiveness on the bases and I think he knew he would have to get a couple of runs by chancing it with sending runners home. Sure enough, we have one slip up where the gal didn't go home like he was telling her, and we ended up losing by one in the Bottom of the 6th when they got their third run.
Like our coaches told us in high school, at this level you can challenge a guy's arm and accuracy and more times than not we on offense will be the successor. Believe it or not, college ball was almost the same results with a little less room for error, but putting the pressure in a tournament on a guy to make a perfect throw usually works out for the offensive team.
Not to pile on here, but the girl I jumped on for stepping out of the box as a slap hitter was the one that Coach told to go, but she hesitated and potentially costed us a run. Not to mention I feel like she played that deep shot in the bottom of the 6th horribly. Bad jump and then lept into the fence without ever turning her head and looking for the ball while allowing it to hit off the fence and pass her. She almost allowed that second run to score and be an inside the park homer, but that point is moot right now.
