Wide Open Already
The Softball season is underway and already some surprises have taken place. I'm not sure if there is truly a clear cut #1 team in the state. But that is how the Softball season is most of the time - wide open. You just don't know. A pitcher has a great game and can knock off a Top Ten team - even #1. I've been to a lot of preseason scrimmages and now regular season games. Clear cut favorites - I think not - at least not right now. But that can change over the next few weeks. The weather will get warmer, pitchers arms stronger, bats will come alive and maybe some teams will emerge. But for now, no team has wowed me - but you never know.
