The girls are in a tournament in Las Vegas. Play Weber State and UNLV today, Weber State and Southern Utah tomorrow and Bayluh on Sunday. According to the schedule page, games will be streamed but only the UNLV game at 9 pm tonight will have play by play. The Weber game today starts at 4 Central.
Next weekend they’re at the Clearwater Invitational in Florida, which is a big deal in college softball. Five games there too. Then their own tournament at Bogle the following weekend, including a chance for revenge against Arizona which won the 2021 super at Bogle. Three games each against Arizona and Drake.
I’m so proud of our friends Dwight and Susie Everett (Everett Buick GMC) partnering with Buick to provide NIL payments to every Arkansas softball player. They give back to the community in so many ways. Love them.
Great… I wished we had more information about how they did in the fall. I would like to kind of know who we expect to be impact players among the newcomers…
Gammill going from third to C I think we’ll be a good move. She has an absolute Cannon and she appeared to have good glove skills at third so I don’t think she will have that hard of transition to catcher.
I made the switch in reverse order from catcher to third and really didn’t have that big a problem with it so hopefully she will adapt and be great behind the plate.
Well, In pulling up the UNLV feed now covering Baylor and Weber State, a large fellow Arkansas gear is sitting on the first row behind home plate…I see Rick Bawiec in the Chat so I know it is not him!
There apparently is some question about the Arkansas telecast starting at 4 PM. The YouTube guide indicated later which makes sense in that the Baylor telecast started at 2 although the game started at 11:30. It appears that is a delayed stream.
Paul Boyd wrote a little in the fall/preseason on the team and its exhibition series against La. Tech:
And Gammill has been said to be a “natural catcher” but in both high school and college she’s played other positions to best suit the entire team. She started at catcher her freshman year at Beebe, but ended up at shortstop. Held down third base great for the Razorbacks two-straight seasons, but now they are moving Spencer Prigge over there. Gammill said she still takes plenty of 3B reps each day at practice, though.
Yes. Earlier there a post regarding technical difficult with the Baylor-Weber State stream so I am assuming by combining chat information and the fact the Baylor telecast started at 2 PM our game telecast is pushed. I will check the box score to see it shows the Baylor game as completed with telecast still ongoing.
Strange - I rechecked the UNLV site and the only data sources indicate the Baylor Weber game is now underway in the top of the 5th with batting and leading 4-3. We play Weber State at 3 MST or 4 CST and this game is only in the top of the 5th. The chat indicates it is live so there had to be a game start delay somewhere. I would not expect the first Razorback game at 4 CST at this rate. The 7 PM MST or 9 PM CST game follows the scheduled 4:30 MST (6:30 CST) game between UNLV and Southern Utah. The schedule tomorrow is equally challenging with 5 games starting at 9 AM MST with Arkansas and Weber St meeting again.
