I see that Hypocrite U swept (2 games) the whorns in Wacko over the weekend. Third game will be in Austin later in season. I think the key to winning Big 12 again, will be series against Hypocrites in Wacko, weekend after next. Hope our pitching is ready!

I watched the second game. Baylor didn't win. Texas lost. Baylor scored a run on a strikeout when the catcher dropped the ball. She threw to the first baseman, who wasn't looking. The ball went down into the right field corner, and nobody went after it until the catcher yelled at them. By the time the rightfielder retrieved the ball, it was an inside-the-park home run, on a strikeout. This was the type of defense that Texas played the entire game. Baylor scored two in the bottom of the seventh for the win on errors.

Baylor is playing a double-header against Louisiana-Lafayette in Waco. Baylor won the first, 2-0. The second is 4-3 Louisiana--Lafayette in the seventh due to a grand slam home run by Vincent. Louisiana-Lafayette is rated #4, #5, or with an rpi of #4. Baylor is #14 rpi. That's a final, 4-3, split.

OU takes Game 1 of Bedlam 10-2.

Re: Softball
 
That was a pretty good fifth inning. OU led 3-2 after four and a half. A two run shot by Knighten made it 5-2. A three-run shot to the opposite field by Self made it 8--2. A long, long drive to right made by Erin made it 10-2, seven runs in the fifth. Paige got the win, but was not as sharp as she has been.

Paige got quite sharper after Melissa made a visit to the mound! Finished pretty strong after lackluster beginning.

It seemed to me that when Paige put runners on base, she bore down and did alright, but still didnt strike batters out. Just got them to ground out without runs scoring. Last year she would have struck out those batters. It's still a matter of control-too many balls in the dirt, too many way overhead and too many walks.

I think she has quit the team. She hasn't been in the dugout the last few games. Don't know why.

That would be a huge loss. Whitney is a great catcher with a penchant for mowing down base stealers and picking runners off base.

Any of you insiders have more information?

She has quit the team. It's a personal matter within the team and they aren't saying. You may have noticed that before she quit that she wasn't in the batting lineup and that she would get replaced on defense after three or four innings. She got married last summer and I'm led to believe that it may have led to complications with her playing softball.

That's sad.

I think she wasn't in batting lineup because her hitting has deteriorated the last couple of years. I know it's not against rules and some are successful but why wouldn't you wait a year and marry after your collegiate softball career was over. I hope she finishes her degree.

Yes! I don't think there was a better arm in the country. I'm pretty sure OU was #1 in fewest number of steals allowed and it pretty much was solely because of Whitney's arm.

Whitney is still on the roster. Usually, quitting the team results in immediate removal. I suspect that if Whitney is no longer with the team that she is still officially with the team. Since we have no back-up to Wodach, Whitney may be on leave unless needed.

Hope you're right, syb.

A good source has told me that Macy Hatfield is being used as the backup catcher.

sybarite 03-31-2016 04:49 PM

Re: Softball
 
I have asked James Hale to go to Gasso and find out what the situation with Whitney is. I think the evidence suggests something like this:

1. I think the use of Hatfield at C began with some experimentation last year.

2. I don't think that we would want to go to the World Series or the Super-Regionals with Hatfield at C.

3. Usually, people who leave the team are removed from the roster.

4. Whitney may, indeed, be experiencing some life changes due to her marriage.

5. If Whitney is kept on scholarship, she would be eligible to return to play in an emergency. The scholarship may help Whitney complete her education.

Hatfield would be used at catcher only in an emergency situation. I wouldn't doubt if Patti looked at some JUCO catchers seeing as how she didn't sign any in the latest recruiting class.

I heard the other day that Paris Townsend was the emergency backup catcher. I think Macey could do it also. I will never forget the year that Jessica Shults got sick in 2011 that OU put Katie Norris at catcher and made it through the regionals to the WCWS. She had to catch Keilani and her cropduster.

Whitney is still on the team, as the roster indicates.

You might recall that the last game OU played was against Missouri and Dani Dobbs was the catcher.
