Game 1 of the Champ series (OU vs. Auburn) Sydney Romero’s 3 Run HR was the only runs OU scored that game. OU went on to lose game 2 in a slug fest (Parker got to rest that game) But she came back fully rested and OU took the series 2-1. Without the Romero homer, who knows what would’ve happened.

Yep. Of course, the same could be said for Emily Carosone's grand slam in extra innings of Game 2.

We're in complete agreement there.

My point was: Knighten's HR off Osorio in the 2016 WCWS was bigger (more impactful) than the shot she hit at Fullerton.

All of these HR that have been mentioned are fun to consider (and remember)...
but this is why I will go with LC's walk off HR in game one of the 2013 finals:

Kellani Ricketts and Ellen Renfroe had both pitched a shutout - through TEN innings.
The score was 0-0 after the tenth. Ricketts had given up just ONE hit (a single) while striking out a dozen.
Renfroe had scattered 4 hits (3 singles and a double) while also striking out a dozen.

Keilani's tremendous pitching finally ran out in the top of the 11th inning. Tennessee got two singles off her... 
and then Madison Shipman blasted a 3 run HR to put her team ahead 3-0. 

Renfro had given up just one lone EBH (a double) through ten innings. But the 11th would prove to be even tougher for her than it had been for Ricketts.
Oklahoma smacked four EBH off Ellen in the 11th to tie the game. Ricketts doubled, Williams doubled, Martinez tripled... 
and then Parsons doubled to tie the game at 3-3. Parsons was thrown out at third - to end the threat.

Ricketts went back to work in the 12th... and got the Tennessee batters 1, 2, 3.

But Renfroe would not be able to regroup the way Ricketts had. 
Turang led off with a double... then Chamberlain smacked her game winning HR to end the game.
It was sophomore Lauren Chamberlain's 30th HR of the season... 
and the 60th HR of her two year career. 

She was the unquestioned greatest HR hitter that the college game had ever seen... 
and this game winning walk off HR - was the icing on the cake. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The fact that it took place in the championship finals - is a key part to what makes this one matter so much.
How many other HR have been walk off blasts in the championship finals?
And how many of those... have happened in extra innings..?

And how many of those have been hit by the biggest star in the game..? 

LC was surely - the biggest star in the game as the 2013 season came to an end.

<< Marisa Runyon's grandslam against Oklahoma in the 2015 Super Regional has to be on the list.  I have attended hundreds if not thousands of sporting events in Tuscaloosa since 1954.  That game and that series ranks at the top for tension and excitement.  Side Notes: I think Chamberlain was the best power hitter that I ever saw in Tuscaloosa; Shelby Pendley in that series was the best defensive shortstop I have seen; Osorio and Parker have two huge hearts. >> (GumpW)


George - Loved your post above, even though I am an Oklahoma fan, and that HR is the single worst moment of the last six years of Sooner softball.
Your comments on Chamberlain, Pendley, Parker and Osorio... are spot on.

Not sure it's #1, but this has gotta be Top 5: walk-off grand slam against your bitter rival to earn your first spot ever in the champ series.
