What a High School Softball Catcher Does Not Once but Twice During a Championship Game Is Downright Dirty

A Texas high school softball catcher was caught on a now-viral video elbowing — and toppling — runners trying score during a championship game.

I think this says something about the young woman’s character.

If I was her Dad, I’d have gone down on the field and told her to “cut that <synonym for excrement> out”.

Of course, she should have been ejected for poor sportsmanship.

It’s a sad reflection on today’s social environment.

Be mad. Work harder. Be very mad — at yourself, your team, or even your luck.

“I think sportsmanship is knowing that it is a game, that we are only as a good as our opponents, and whether you win or lose, to always give 100 percent.” — Sue Wicks, tenacious Rutgers womens basketball payer

This is a disgrace to Texas high school softball. I thought better of Texans.

At the very least, the next offensive player to score should have decked her!
