I was pleased to see the continued success of the Women's College World Series in Oklahoma City, where it's been held for more than 20 years, and the high quality of play by the teams and athletes. It was satisfying to see the Sooners in their traditional shorts rather than baseball-type pants that most of the players are wearing today in women's softball. All women's Olympic teams play in shorts, as they do in international softball competitions.
USA Softball has done a remarkable job in continuing to improve the ASA Hall of Fame Stadium and the National Softball Hall of Fame and Museum.
