Video Take out
There’s a fine line between being competitive and being dirty. One high school softball catcher wasn’t even close to that line, and not in a good way.
Needham and Huffman Hargrave were locked in a tight one in the Texas 4A state championship game, so the stakes were high. But that was no excuse for the Needham catcher, who flattened a Huffman Hargrave baserunner with a vicious elbow as she scored easily.
The worst part? The Needham catcher did it again.
Not only are these some pretty bad cheap shots, but impeding a runner’s progress to any base, including home plate, is illegal at the high school level. Besides, there wasn’t anything close to a play at the plate in either case.
