Just a few examples and they will differ somewhat from baseball.

Tied in tie rule, runners on 2nd and 3rd with 1st base open. You have a right handed coming up with 2 slappers after her. Both slappers have hit ground balls in every at bat. Easiest call in the world, walk the world, walk the righty, load the bases since run scoring ends game. Nope pitch and walk off homer ends it.

We have runner on 2 no outs. SS stays at normal position and 3B shifts up into bunt defense leaving bag open. Our runner on 2B gets even with SS on lead, 3B still up and do we teach them to read the defense and take the bag. Nope, let’s go back to 2B 3 times in a row. Oh and never educate the runners on taking advantage of D out of position. Something every high level travel team and college will do.

The GA pitching management is a classic example of 3 years of poor game management. Quick to change initially, make a mistake then vapor lock until you 5 runs deep.

She’s the pitching coach, from first season to second every pitcher saw a major era jump minus 1. When that happens to the staff it’s not the players.

I could talk about position issues and an inability to bunt but you get the gist.

The reality is, she toad Smiths coattails at McNeese, was there 2 years after he left (so his team essentially since year 3 is considered the year you are considered owning the team) then came here.
