A well-deserved honor was bestowed on Harlee Donovan as she was named the (first-ever from SOU) national player of the year. Besides her gold-glove defense at catcher, she was by far the most feared hitter in the NAIA. This is evidenced by her 62 walks, more than 20 as many as anyone in the NAIA. By way of comparison, her OPS of 1.364 is more than 200 points higher than Babe Ruth’s 1.164–the highest in MLB history. The leader in OPS this year in MLB is Mookie Betts at 1.187.

Kelsey Randall was an All-American for the second year in a row. She came in third in the NAIA in walks (with 40), was first in triples, first in runs scored, and second in stolen bases. On defense she was also first in assists and won four gold gloves as a Raider. She is the all-time record holder in the NAIA in triples.

Rowdy!

@MedfordRogues

Last night was opening night in Medford. The Rogues began the season as they ended last year’s championship season, with another victory. Most importantly, the beer batter on the Lincoln Potters struck out in the 1st, allowing fans to buy $3 beers early on.

One week from today begins the 2018 NAIA Softball World Series. The Raiders will meet archnemesis Marian in the first game. (SOU beat Marian for the National Championship in football in 2014. Since then Southern Oregon is 0-3 with a football loss in 2015, a women’s basketball loss in 2016, and a softball loss in 2016.) It’s payback time!

I’m guessing the Raiders will be the only team there with at least four freshmen in their starting lineup. Those four freshmen have played amazing defense and hit a combined .351 this year.
