Many topics discussed in this interview with UCLA's Kelly Inouye-Perez including the need for Instant Replay in College Softball, 2018 outlook of Bruins, the controversy that took place at Women College World Series and more.

Thanks for the link, ucferic.
I enjoyed listening to her talk about the old days as a player - and as an assistant coach under those first two great UCLA coaches. Lots of interesting tidbits - like that she first met and played softball with Lisa Fernandez around age 10. 

It was great to hear that she is trying her best to get replay added to softball (especially in the post season). She said one thing that is a problem is that ESPN doesn't seem want it because it slows the game down. I hope that does not keep it from becoming a reality in the game. My feeling is that it doesn't slow the game down THAT much. It is well worth an extra minute or two - to get the calls right.

They could easily limit how many times it's used.

Seems a no brainer so it probably will not be done. Too many cameras needed?

Certainly not in Supers or WCWS

And, as you said, give every coach one challenge. If they are wrong, they are done. If they are right, they keep the challenge, as many times as they want to use one, until they are wrong

Well, NO coach should be penalized if a Cody Little poops the bed more than twice without getting a contested call right

But... ANYTHING would be better than now, so yes, if your idea had traction, I'll grab the pom-poms
