    I'm really surprised that not a single member is talking about History being made this weekend. Arkansas' Danielle Gibson hits the home run cycle, it's only the second time it's happen in NCAA History

    I don't believe it ever been done in the Major League or has it?

    It's sad to think that a major story like this is being talk about on all the sports talk radio stations. But the softball people are silent.

    Maybe that why the 2024 Olympic wants to drop Softball in favor of Skateboarding.

    It wouldn't happen in MLB because after two home runs the batter would be walked, intentionally or unintentionally. I don't know the game situation in this case, but I can't see why this hitter got pitched to the third and fourth times. She was obviously dialed into what they were throwing at her. Good for her, she had an amazing day and is obviously a very capable hitter, but you can't keep serving it up like that when she's on fire.

    I now it was for the cycle BUT I was a replying Travelball saying it wouldn't happen in MLB because after 2 hrs they would walked or hit the batter etc. My point was 4 hrs have been it in a game in MLB multiple times but thanks for sharing.

    Sounds to me like the SIU pitching coach could use a new wristband from coachjwb with a very clear WALK SIGN.
