What better way to celebrate the return of the WNIT in 2021 than to jump back twenty-three years.
We're back in 1998 when current San Antonio Spurs Assistant Coach, Becky Hammon, lead the CSU Rams to the preseason championship!

Needless to say, baseball is a very fun game that can provide a lifetime of memories and stories if played correctly-- or incorrectly. Framed in his home is this subtle reminder of just how fun baseball can be. Here is his story:
13 years ago I had the pleasure of being on a team that played in the Omaha slump buster (sic)! I don’t remember the first two games I played in; the third game though is 100% engraved into memory! In my first at bat 2nd pitch I was given a fastball! Jumped all over it, a big swing and a foul tip! Well somehow the ball had the perfect spin to come off the bat and hit me right on the front left two teeth! It knocked one tooth out immediately! The umpire looked at me and asked if I was all right, I told him I think I lost a tooth blue! Then spit the second tooth out! Went to the dentist of course! They put the teeth back in whole! Well from that point forward they gave me nothing but problems, last Thursday I had to have those teeth removed! What a beautiful memory that continues to keep on giving.
Thanks for sharing!
