Despite criticism for pushing the right button at the right time for this team, Windham details how he was able to become the program’s most productive pitcher and the key to the Crimson Tide’s success in the circle this year. to replace.

The Oklahoma Sooners are not back in the WCWS for anyone, but there are discussions about the Sooners’ “home field advantage” in Oklahoma City. Should we consider moving the event to other cities?
