Not a thread about her possible leap! Please don't derail.

Friday, Texas won on her pitching a No-Hitter (her 2nd in the past 3 games). After the game, she was interviewed and said, "The No-Hitter is nice, but I'm still upset about that walk" The 1 walk she allowed was the only baserunner of the game.

Saturday - Winner's Bracket game in double-elimination. Kat throws a perfect game, striking out 17 of 21 hitters. Guess she was serious about being upset about the walk.

Anyone see Sunday's game - I can't find a box score anywhere (even ESPN), and don't even know if she pitched. Texas won 2-0 to advance to the Super Regionals.

No. But, then, I didn't try very hard, either!

Tennessee's Monica Abbott (45-7) threw a no-hitter on Sunday, her sixth of the season. One walk in the fifth was all that kept her from a perfect game. She has not allowed a run yet in NCAA tournament play.

And best I could tell, she doesn't leap.

Cat throws good pitches, just not always completely legal.

I,ve just returned from the DIII world series in Raleigh NC.
I can tell you that no one will call an IP on a crow hop or a leap. It's just not gonna be called. The NCAA should remove the leap and crow hop as illegal pitches from the rulebook. Officials do not have the courage to make the call at that level.

NSABlue where you there to call the DIII world series or just watching. I have a good friend from the Dallas area that worked it and I can assure you he will call an illegal pitch when it happens.
Any of you, including Glen, how many of you have been on the field when Cat pitches? You all complain that she is illegal. Have you worked any of her games this year? Just wondering.

Just to clarify... my post was an inside joke for frequenters of the "e" board. You'd have to be reading that board to even know what the picture meant.

I didn't mean it seriously. I've never seen Kat pitch in person. A couple of replay / highlights is all I've seen.

I've read the eteamz board and I know who you are referring to. I guess that is why I asked tha question. She gets ripped there by "the Picture". I am really curions if he has seen her in person. And then Glen chimed in. I have worked her games twice this year, once on the plate and once on the bases. I cannot vouch for any other games than those, bur she did not leap in those games. I could not tell from the plate, but I watched closely from 3rd. She pushes and drags.

No, I have never seen her in person. However, you always see more on replays, especially slow motion replays.

Cat does push and drag. But it's what happens at the end of the drag that often gets people's attention and I have only seen it in slow motion. Occasionally at the end of the drag there is a spray of dirt back towards the pitcher's plate. Well, there is only one thing of which I can think that can cause that.

No, I have not worked a Cat game since HS. Was not implying that she
is always illegal. She is so quick. Have been to a couple of games,
and at times she will still get air-borne.

I was there to watch as a fan. I have a DD who was there as a player. I'm not complaining about just one pitcher or a particular game. There were two pitchers there that clearly crow hopped and it was ignored by all the umpires despite frequent protests from opposing coaches. I watched all the games and it happened every time these two pitchers worked. Other than the crow hop these girls were fantastic pitchers. It was a great tournament with lots of great competition.I can assure you that your friend ( I know who you're referring to) would not call the IP because none of them would. Would you want to be the only umpire that calls it when no one has called it all year? I don't think so. All I'm saying is that if the officials won't call it then take it out of the book.
