If you haven’t been to PK Park or Howe Field, get off your hams and get to the stadiums! One of the most beautiful springs in a decade is upon us, and both the Ducks baseball and softball teams are ranked in the top-10. The softball team has taken the Pac-12, and the baseball team is trying to do the same.
I used to say that baseball and softball are fun sports to watch because they are less tense, slow-paced and genuinely relaxing. It turns out that I’m wrong on that account. When your team is in the top-10, just like our football team is every year, the suck-knob gets turned down and the intensity is jacked up to astronomical levels. Seeing a squeeze play in the bottom of the ninth to beat the ‘Trees’ and a grand slam to drown the Beavers live rewrites anything you thought about the two sports.
Our softball team unveiled new uniforms this year, and they look GOOD (the jerseys I mean..), and the male mallards don’t look too shabby either. These teams have everything you want: a sweet stadium experience, stunning uniforms, a passionate crowd and National Title echelon ball.
Quit slackin’ and get quackin’ – champions are still at work!
