    Default Arizona F4 wearing a mask

    I just watched the replay of the Arizona vs. UCLA game and noticed 2B for Arizona was wearing a facemask. Does anyone know if she has always worn it? Is she protecting an injury? I have seen a lot of 3B and even some 1B who wear a mask, but this is the first 2B I recall seeing with a mask in college.

    BTW - it was a great game and you should watch the replay if you have a chance. A lot of offensive fireworks at the end.

    That was Reyna Carranco at 2B. She was hit by pitch in the face vs. Washington and is still recovering.

    And yes, it was a great game. My DD and I were pulling for AZ though!

    There is a Baylor playing wearing a mask at 2B but it is from an earlier injury prior to the season starting I’m told. Baylor as has a pitcher that wears a mask. I was told just three years ago that Glenn Moore would not recruit a player with a mask. (Hearsay from inside the locker room so take it with a grain of salt.)
    Do not argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    There was an NFCA poll done a few years ago where several coaches agreed with that philosophy, but wanted to remain anonymous so as not to affect recruiting. Sounds like BS to me! If a coach won't recruit a player who uses a mask, just come out and say so and stop wasting everyone's time (including your own!)
