    Any other college softball fans here? Pinball on dirt. Or am I a man on an island?

    I think I'd need to have a daughter on a college softball team to be a fan.

    Even if I didn't have a daughter that played college softball, I think I'd still be a big fan. The game just speaks to me. Same with the LLWS.

    I sometimes watch it on the P-12 Network. If you like baseball and basketball and want to watch both games played fundamentally well, you'll enjoy watching D1 women's basketball and softball. Without the raw athleticism that can dominate the men's game, fundamentals rule the women's game. I enjoy watching that.

    LLWS time. Anyone have a son or daughter in the little league regionals they'd like to brag about? Love this game and love watching these kids.

    Watched the Utah team play SoCal yesterday. Dang, those Utah kids were teeny in comparison. It's a miracle they've won any games at all.

    Uganda defeats the DR. Amazing. It was just a couple of years ago they showed up to Williamsport without cleats. Great what Uganda has done since creating a little league program.....plus, they look like they could be the real deal this year.

    Huge win.....Utah defeats #9 Kenyucky 3-0. A regional win here could launch Utah softball to the next level. Hannah Flippen, Utah 2B Pac12 POY.
