One time my Dd stole home after the catcher took their glove off and wasn’t paying attention but my dd slid under the girl instead of sprinting right into her (also dd did it a little stealthier and quicker than that girl. I’m not sure what those coaches were thinking sending her. They probably were trying to knock the ball out of Maddie’s glove which is very unsportsmanlike)Maddie did take her glove off though (for a second). I wonder if that was the trigger for coming home? I know it's only showcase but runner should have been ejected for creating contact IMO.
I always find it interesting how that is the case 99% of the time in softball but not baseball. In baseball that runner would be wearing one his next AB. Then girls complain about being called soft..........My DD's team doesn't play like that. They got their revenge on the scoreboard.
We were allowed to be in the path of runners waiting for the ball on its way.
