Rain in Mid-Missouri later Saturday afternoon has prompted some schedule changes for the remainder of the weekend with Mizzou's Softball and Baseball teams.
Team USA finished up tryouts a week and a half ago, and they spent last week competing in some exhibitions. Not surprisingly, JJ is shining. Here's a look at how she's doing so far.
Since I'm somewhat of a stat geek, and with a little more than one-third of the regular season now behind us, I thought it'd be fun to take a look at the all-time softball record book for my first blog entry. We've had plenty of players make their move into or up the all-time team rankings, while we also have a handful of players just outside the top 10 in numerous categories who could break through before the year ends. With this first entry, we're just going to dive into the offensive side of the record book. We'll evaluate the pitching and fielding side later this week.
Bill Pollock, sports director of the Missourinet, visited with head Softball coach Ehren Earleywine last month for a preview of the 2010 season. Coach and reporter spent several minutes going over last year's success -- which ended in a trip to the Women's College World Series -- and looking ahead to this season.
Pollock also chatted with Chelsea Thomas, who agreed to pitch to Bill for a 3-at-bat sequence. Video of the entire interview comes after the jump. We won't give away what happened, other than to say Bill's body, if not his ego, is still intact.
