Lol! Not any more, but I was born and raised in NJ. I can't recall the name of the pitcher but I remember seeing her mentioned in the paper. I played HS ball around the same time so was always reading the HS sports section of the Star Ledger.

That is too funny.
On a more serious note, would that be a legal pitch in softball. Just curious. What makes an underhand pitch underhanded?

It would be illegal. Stop the video during the delivery and you will see the wrist and hand is well outside the elbow.

Technically it is illegal but it's not uncommon to see pitchers with a 90 degree bend in their elbow, and it's never called. You have to have slo-mo video to really see it.
