A fan taking in a Southern Arkansas Muleriders softball game this afternoon used up all of his coordination to make an incredible snag, stretching to catch a homer from the bed of a pickup truck. Overenthused and underprepared, he promptly toppled headfirst out of said pickup truck.
The College Softball World Series is coming up in two weeks, and thanks to a new NCAA initiative, it’ll be a lot less fun than last year. Regional tournaments open this weekend, and the NCAA has decided that they will crack down and enforce an arcane rule against props in the dugout starting with this first round of…
The fourteenth-ranked Missouri softball team is playing today’s game against South Carolina under protest after players claim an “unjust investigation” is taking place against the program.
Three former women’s coaches at the University of Minnesota Duluth sued the state’s university system in federal court today, all saying they were victims of discrimination while working for the university. In the lawsuit, each woman outlines her own story and the various ways in which she was harassed, excluded, and…
A second former softball player has sued St. Joseph’s University and its softball team coach, Terri Adams, saying she was forced to endure hazing and was threatened when members of the team believed she was the source of a media report about it. The lawsuit was filed earlier this month in federal court, 16 days after …

It's one thing to be a stickler for the rules, it's another to be a stickler who protests a perfectly legit home run because of an obscure, pointless rule—and doesn't even read the rule right.
Of the many and varied sporting events that take place daily across the nation, the last one at which I'd expect a brawl to break out would probably be a college softball game. Preconception: shattered.
This occurred Saturday, but women's softball news tends to travel slowly, if at all. In an amazing display of sportsmanship, some Central Washington University players helped a Western Oregon opponent round the bases to complete a home run after the batter had injured her knee. This also once happened to me in…
Burnt Orange Nation ran an interview with former Texas softball pitcher Cat Osterman on Monday, at the end of which Osterman was asked to play a little word association (a recurring BON interview theme).
