Argh, lefties with runners on is so much more difficult for the catchers to pick up, that's when the team really needs to help with a "RUNNER".. You're right, that was a pretty slow developing play, but good on Maddie for executing perfectly and getting the double.. Nice.Game-ending play against a very weak HS opponent. Kind of slow, really...but fast enough the job done. Maddie told me that she couldn't see the runner until she was about 1/3 of the way to 2B, but still felt like she had plenty of time. The runner from 3B never had a chance.
I do appreciate the no slide-you're out-twirl at the end!
