My apology to G. I didn't think we could win with her and was wrong. This is a team for the ages and we may be even better next year particularly if Alo returns.

Alo is already on record that she is returning also possible for Snow and Johns to return but they have not finalized their decision.

Incoming freshman class is loaded signed the #!, #3 and 2 girls tied for the #5 girl, #11, #14 and #22 ranked nationally. Signed a class of 7 incoming freshmen.

What a season this was. Truly one for the ages. I got to watch (on TV, alas) every game but a couple of early ones and I enjoyed every minute of it. Congrats to Coach Gasso, her staff and those amazing players!

I got hooked on OU softball a little over a decade ago when Keilane Ricketts was striking batters out with 73 mph fastballs. For anyone who thinks thatís not a big deal, 73 mph at 43 feet from the pitching rubber to the plate in softball is the equivalent of 103 mph in baseball.

Iím a bigger fan now than I was back then, but this may be the most fun Iíve had of any championship season in the last ten years because this team is truly special! There is nothing they couldnít and didnít do well. Pitching was not always a strength, but G made up for that with a MVP performance in the championship series!

Congrats to our coaches and our players! As Skyvue said, this was one for the ages and I couldnít be happier with this win and this season!!!

Having it mid-afternoon tomorrow is an absolute joke. Goes to show what a short-sighted decision it was to move the "IF" games up a day.
Yes, I wouldn't move an NBA playoff game for the WCWS, so I think this is an acceptable option if it were 1998. It's 2021, though, and there are a million ways around this. For instance, they could stream it on ESPN+, YoutubeTV, etc. Or as you said, they could have just not pushed the games back.

But regardless...I'm very happy for our girls! I'm excited to run it back next year with most of the team intact. We'll have to replace G, but I have a feeling that if Patty isn't satisfied with what's in the cupboard, we'll have no difficulty snagging a top 10 pitcher in the transfer market.

It's crazy to say this, but just when you think Patti can't make this program any better, she does.

Just saw that we have the #1 rated player in the country (Jordyn Bahl) coming in next year, and she just so happens to be a pitcher. And then, of course, they're bringing about half of the top 10-15 players.
