Do any other states besides Oklahoma have their girls playing slow pitch softball in the spring? That is a joke that needs to end. All softball sanctioned by the OSSAA needs to be fast pitch.

With that in mind, it wouldn't bother me if all of the players come from Cali. Patty obviously has a pipeline to California and I hope it continues to pump their elite players to OU.

Note, I did leave off Parsons but didn't mean too.
Absolutely, with California's population at 38 million and Oklahoma's just shy of 4 mil, and she being from Cali., she can recruit Iceland for all I care. She just has a knack for getting excellent fundamentally sound kids for her program. Has a great eye for talent.

I suspect (hope) that some of those freshmen and sophomores will find their way into a starting role in the next year or so, but if the California (and elsewhere) girls continue to dominate the starting lineup, so be it.
But it would be nice to see a few more home-grown talents in the starting lineup...
Patty Gasso is also from California! She would naturally have more connections in California than maybe some other schools but as the announcers said, there are many Californians on rosters of all the big time schools, including Florida (4) and Tennessee (7) and even OSU that has 4 Californians and 1 from Sydney, Australia. The whorns have 5 from California and one from Gainesville, FLA.

I think it's pretty obvious our pitching will not be as good next year. That's okay as we just won a NC. Every team has some rebuilding to do from time to time.

Correct. I should have explained I was just posting that to show where the players were from and how many OU had that was being considered for the draft. Four out of the top 9 is outstanding!

Sybarite, the 2016 committ is Alissa Dawson of Cypress, Texas, not Allison Dawson of Virginia.
By the way, I got Page Parker and Brittney Finney confused in my post about future pitchers the other day.
If anyone wants to check the committments, go to jenkinsavenuebombers.com and click on page 2.

That makes it clear that unless the players are willing to work their butt off and give everything they've got, Patty wants them to move on down the road. YES!!!
