Stuff fastpitch softball coaches say

There’s a big ASA softball tournament coming up this weekend, one of those that carries a lot of prestige for being successful.

One of my students told me her coach is very uptight about it, and has been telling his team “There are no bad teams in this tournament. Pitchers, you can’t walk anyone. Fielders, you can’t make any errors.”

Gee, I thought that was always the goal, no matter how good or bad the other teams are!
