https://www.seattletimes.com/sports/uw-huskies/former-pitcher-kirstyn-thomas-has-become-a-power-hitter-for-the-washington-softball-team/

Quote:

Thomas, who attended George Bush High School in Richmond, Texas, near Houston, got antsy late in her junior year when other players began committing to schools, and she had no offers. When Nicholls State became the first school to make an offer, she gave a verbal commitment.

“It was getting down to crunch time, and everyone else was signing,” Thomas recalled. “Then I heard from my high-school coach that Washington was interested. I talked to my travel-ball coach and said, ‘Hey, how come you didn’t tell me?’ ”



Quote:

The Huskies viewed Thomas as an athlete who could both pitch and play the field, but as a freshman their biggest need was in the circle. She appeared in 17 games as a pitcher, six as a starter, and went 3-2 with a 6.54 earned-run average.

But Thomas was what is referred to as a “leaper,” meaning her foot left the ground during delivery, which at the time was an illegal pitch. They worked hard on changing her style, “but she had a long way to go if she was going to pitch at this level,’’ Tarr said.

It's like the old Mitch Hedberg bit:

"I used to do drugs. I still do, but I used to, too."

It used to be illegal...

Obviously UW's main concern should be the games they have to play, but who should they be pulling for in Thursday's OK/OR game?

LOL. Good thing I don't play and can just watch.

It's best for UW if teams in the conference do well and if teams they have yet to play do well.

I had to (for the best for the UW softball team) hope Oregon did well last weekend and the same holds true this week.

I think Oregon wins for sure. And that OSU may take 1 of 2 but not likely.

Uh...at the time it was illegal? Does that mean it’s not illegal anymore? Hmmm...

<< I think Oregon wins for sure (over Oklahoma). >> (AD)

There you go again...

Using phrases like "for sure"... 

Are you going to give those 1000-1 odds again...?

Sheesh Hank. You are out in some other dimension.

I've never made a comment about this before.

It's right next to the post saying that you can take a joke.

Maybe his last post sent my way on this subject:

It's now tolerated, at least in the WCWS (and seldom called elsewhere)...courtesy of ESPN/SEC, who are writing the real rules. Both Barnhill and Plain are more hoppers than leapers.

I've stepped in a hornets nest.

Allow me to back out.

Cheers.

I would think, with your vast knowledge, you'd be a little more pragmatic and understand that words are not the same as actions. If you drew nothing from last year's WCWS, you should have realized that on the sport's biggest stage.......no IP's. Top umpires, how do you explain that? You think Walton has more pull than Gasso? White? ESPN doesn't want Barnhill to get called? How do you explain it?

After the 2010 WCWS and the drop of viewership because of the IP calls, they decided to not emphasize the IP's anymore. Plus it's a double jeopardy penalty. A ball to the batter plus an extra base. Since the runner cannot leave the base until the ball has left the pitcher's hand, they need to remove the base award penalty. Or just change the rule to allow leaping and let them play and move on. Then people will stop crying foul and sit back and enjoy the game.

I am sure they will take that into consideration.

They've removed the runners advance part of the penalty. It is now just a ball on the batter.

Not much for deadpan humor, I see.
