A walk-off, inside-the-park strikeout
Here’s a very odd way to win a state championship…a walk-off, inside-the-park strikeout.
Most of us dreamed once of winning a championship by crushing a walk-off homer, rounding the bases, and meeting our teammates at home plate to celebrate. That happened in the Montana 2A state softball championship this weekend, except without the home run part. With the bases empty in the bottom of the seventh inning a girl failed to make contact on strike three, but the catcher couldn't field the ball. She reached first on a throwing error, was safe at second, then made it to third from another bad throw and eventually scored.
