Slowpitch softball conundrums...
By Robert Przybylo
Couple of things stood out when making my selections for the All-City Slowpitch Softball team.
Most notably, the first team is nine seniors and one junior. Don’t know why I thought that was so shocking, but I did. The teams that did well were senior-laden squads with girls that wanted to make that final run memorable.
Slowpitch selections are almost as tough as fastpitch. Not enough teams play slowpitch to justify a “Little” and “Big” team, so inevitably, some girls get left out.
And what happens as is the case in just about every sport, it’s “position heavy.” What I mean by that is I could have had six, seven teams absolutely loaded as infielders.
It’s a shame that players like Blaike Boles of Wayne and Haley Broyles of Blanchard (to name a couple) couldn’t find a home on the first two teams.
It’s just like in football where there might be seven, eight QBs and RBs that you can’t find a spot for. Just the way it goes.
Not an easy process, but I’m happy with my selections. Some girls were just on the cusp, so figured I’d give ‘em some love here on the blog. Here is my slowpitch “Third Team.”
