“My dad had a stroke on the plane and there was a doctor on the plane and the doctor told the pilot to land as soon as possible. They were over New Mexico and the pilot landed at Albuquerque,” Booker’s oldest daughter Savanah said Thursday from the hospital room at Presbyterian Hospital in Albuquerque.

 

“He was sitting next to a woman and in the middle of a conversation he could not talk and went unresponsive and the woman realized something was wrong and a flight attendant was called over and realized he had a stroke and made an announcement over the plane to see if there was a doctor on board and there was. They told the pilot and he made an emergency landing at Albuquerque, New Mexico and they had an ambulance waiting.

He is doing much better and it is directly related to how fast they were able to respond and get him clot busting drugs,” Booker continued. “The staff has been amazed at his recovery. He was able to regain movement on the left side of his body. He was still slurring speech the next day.  Wednesday, he had got so much better that he walked a little bit. He still has numbness on his face. The doctors anticipate he will make a full recovery which is amazing considering he had a high score for damage from a stroke.”

Paul Hughes also got off the plane with him at Albuquerque and has stayed with him. Booker could be discharged June 1 but is still in ICU as a precaution.

“With his symptoms they thought he would have to stay an extended period of time and go through rehabilitation,” Booker said. “He will need rehab and physical therapy when he gets back to Madison.”

Very early stab at a starting lineup......

CF  Brown
SS  Wallace
RF  Tow
1B  Hemphill
DP  Callaway
C   Dykes
LF  Schroder
2B  Morgan
3B  Jenkins

I would toy with the idea of hitting Brown 9th.  Wallace can serve as a leadoff or run producer.

Not a bad stab.  My stab:

Brown
Morgan - Hope she will be ready to go.  Good bunter this year when called on
Tow
Hemphill
Wallace - Know little about her except for rave reviews which include power
Callaway - Underrated player that was very solid this year
Schroder Hope she and Reagan will step it up for their senior year
Dykes - Both very solid players with still untapped potential
Jenkins - If Fouts also hits DP could hit for Claire - think she's a better hitter than this year

Hardy's role seems well defined and imo she's good at it.
Sides, Lockhart, Anderson, Davis -- who will step up?

Hopefully Hemphill will lose some weight in the offseason. she's powerful but slow because she gets tired easily.

Truth is I'm jealous I'm jealous of the fact that they can do what I can't do. I shouldn't have said anything because I know it hurts so much....

Over 400 pitches and 1 earned run in 4 complete games for Montana yesterday, after another complete game Thursday night. Might have to throw 4 more today. I sure will be glad when this tournament is over.

Thankfully, Fouts was finally pulled early in the first game of the day, but East Carter lost to end the season in the 4th spot in the state.

Curious about that.  Cost her team a chance to play for a championship.  Was that done at Murphy's request - she can throw up to 500 pitches and then she's done?

Well, we had Jessica Elliott at South Carolina and she had the same accolades. She finished with a 2.80 ERA her senior season. A lot of those swing and misses she got at Chipola turned into WALKS AND WALKS AND WALKS in D1.

ST. JOSEPH (WCIA) -- Records are meant to be broken and Bailey Dowling is well on her way to rewriting the Illinois high school softball record books. After only two seasons, she's already moved into the top 15 of career home runs, only 17 shy of the all-time state record of 60.

"She'll break a lot of state records and a lot of SJO records," St. Joseph-Ogden softball coach Randy Wolken said. "Which, we've had a great tradition here so it's not like you're just coming into a program that's thrown the ball out. We've had some great plays and she's the best player that we've had."

Dowling will be the first to admit she doesn't get caught up in the stats or records during the season. At the end of each year, head coach Randy Wolken hands out an SJO record book though, and the Alabama commit looks that over closely.

"I just look at the top and then I go from the top down and see who's at the top and it's my goal to be up there every year," Dowling said.

Seems like Fouts had some major arm soreness due to overuse in the state tournament. Here's hoping it's nothing serious, as I'm looking forward to seeing her pitch in the SEC next year.

ST. JOSEPH — Bailey Dowling is described in many ways when it comes to softball. Among the most-common phrases is the word "humble."

For confirmation of this, look no further than earlier this week.

The St. Joseph-Ogden sophomore was standing just beyond the local recreational league fields where she played T-ball in her early years. It's the location she selected for her News-Gazette All-Area softball Player of the Year photograph, a process she's now gone through twice in as many seasons.

Initially, she didn't explain the additional reason she wanted to visit this spot. Her father, Brett helped out, revealing that Bailey donated to the St. Joseph rec league the $1,000 she received for being named the state's Gatorade Player of the Year earlier this month.

Bailey has so much going on in the softball realm, of course, because she's already a dominant athlete at 16 years old.

The Alabama commit's latest prep campaign, which ended with a walk-off loss to Williamsville in a Class 2A super-sectional game, resulted in a .657 batting average with an area-best 21 home runs and 68 RBI.

Bailey's on pace to crush the IHSA longballs record — 60, a mark set by current Illini Stephanie Abello at Benet Academy — as she's already hit 43 home runs in two years. She is also the only player in state history to clear the fence more than 20 times in multiple seasons.

But there's more. Wolken describes Bailey as a "five-tool player" who can run the bases and field the ball well. She also was a team captain for the Spartans despite being a sophomore.
