#1 Oregon Ducks sweep regionals

Oregon Ducks Softball – Cheridan Hawkins struck out 11 Wisconsin batters in 7 innings

@OregonSB @CheridanH11 The Ducks hosted three other teams trying to get through them to the 2014 College Softball World Series this weekend. The regionals are a double-elimination format. The #1 ranked Ducks didn’t even use their one allowed loss. Instead, they went 3-0 to set up next weekend’s best two out of three series with #16 Minnesota. The winner will be going to the NCAA Women’s College Softball World Series.

Cheridan Hawkins is 31-4 so far this season with 302 strikeouts in 217 innings of work. Wisconsin was ranked #25 before losing twice to Oregon.

Next Monday (March 24, 2014) during Spring Break the Oregon Ducks Baseball Team will be travelling down I-5 to Medford’s Harry & David Field for a workout, scrimmage, and a meet and greet with the fans. Tickets are still available and can be purchased here.

Unfortunately, the game the Ducks lost was the game when I was there. Ryan Riga tossed a complete game shutout with 10 Ks for the Buckeyes in the rain on Saturday evening when I took today’s photo. The Oregon Ducks were trying anything to get on base including many bunt attempts.

In a few hours I’ll be shooting the Oregon Ducks as they take on the Ohio State Buckeyes in Eugene today.

The Oregon Ducks play their first game of the season in Eugene at 6 p.m. today. I’m getting the itch to head up the highway to catch a game or two. It’s been too long since I’ve last seen live baseball.

The first baseman in today’s photo, Danny Hayes of the OSU Beavers, was drafted by the Chicago White Sox. The pitcher, Andrew Moore, was only a freshman when I took this, and in addition to winning the Pac-12 Freshman Player of the Year Award, he was also named to the Baseball America All-America First Team.

Tonight (or this afternoon depending on where you live) the Ducks and Longhorns will be locking horns (or webbed feet or something) in a consolation prize for Oregon. It’s not what the Ducks were hoping for, but the season won’t be a complete loss with a bowl victory.

I’m not committed on an NCAA Division I college team to root for at this point, but Ryan has been accepted to the University of Oregon so I may end up becoming a Duck fan beginning next school year.

I suppose an animal with eyes on the sides of its head could view the University of Oregon’s three sporting venues (football, baseball, and soccer) all at once. Us humans need to photomerge six photos together to see them at the same time. This is a 180 degree view from the deck next to the Autzen Stadium Press Box at halftime this past Saturday.

I spent yesterday on the sidelines of the Ducks-Utes game in Eugene. The weather wasn’t too bad. In fact, it only rained during the pregame. It was mostly cloudy the rest of the time, but I can’t complain. A day game without rain is more than I expected.

I took nearly 900 photos and have only looked at about 50 at this point. I’ll post some more here soon.

Today’s image came from a download I did more than a week ago when I was thinking I was going to be heading up to Eugene this Saturday to see the Ducks continue their march to an undefeated season and a National Championship. However, Stanford got in the way of that plan last week. The bright side is that Saturday’s game is now going to be a day game (as the Stanford vs. USC game became the night game). I have a photo pass, will be on the sidelines, and won’t have to deal with the slower shutter speeds that would have come with a night game.
