Transition Year Ahead for Auburn Softball After Missing Another Women’s College World Series

After years of failing to bring home the Women’s College World Series Championship, the Pac-12 finally broke through to recapture the title that the conference once dominated. UCLA took down Oklahoma, the most stable and elite program in the country. The SEC wasn’t represented in the finals for a second year as Alabama and Florida couldn’t escape each other or Oklahoma.

The two SEC teams had to play in an elimination game in the WCWS. Alabama was seeded eighth and had to start the WCWS against Oklahoma, the overall one seed. Florida and Oklahoma State joined the fray with OSU coming out on top.

On the other side of the bracket, there were three Pac-12 teams plus out-gunned Minnesota, assuring the Pac-12 that least one team would make it to Oklahoma City. It was certainly odd to see Alabama and Florida ranked so low as Alabama was probably the second best team in the country, if not the best, with Oklahoma’s famous win streak buoying its ranking. Florida’s squad had just won the SEC tournament. Yet both were low seeds, Alabama played Oklahoma without success, and UCLA pulled it off by beating the Sooners to end another terrific year of softball.

Not in the discussion for the second time in two years were the Auburn Tigers. The Tigers in their second year under coach Mickey Dean didn’t make it out of regionals. Three years ago, just the thought of not hosting a regional would have been preposterous, much less getting sent home in the first round of the tournament at some other team’s place. Yet, it happened.

Meanwhile …

James Madison, the team that Dean left for the Plains, lost in its Super Regional to the eventual National Champions, the UCLA Bruins. JMU dropped the deciding game 2–0. Although Florida State may be the the first National Champion not to make it back to Oklahoma City, it is Auburn’s program that has slid more than any other top-flight program. At least the Seminoles hosted a Super Regional before being shocked by Oklahoma State.

By season’s end, Auburn softball fans were in fairly heated debate over what was happening and why. There are many valid points and concerns about Auburn’s current woes.

The conversation should start with the turmoil left by the previous coaching staff. While the full story has never told and likely never will be, the result was a regime change in the coaching staff during a critical year. Coach Clint Myers was entering, essentially, his first year with players whom he recruited and developed in 2016–2017. That team would likely have stabilized the program for years to come. Instead, the coaching staff was dismissed, players left, and Mickey Dean and Eddie Kettelhut entered the picture. The rest is history.

Some details need to be addressed. Yes, Auburn had injuries to critical players. Makayla Martin was easily one of the better pitchers in the country and breaking her hand halfway through the season hurt a lot. Losing Ashlee Swindle in regional play hurt as did losing shortstop Taylon Snow to a torn rotator cuff or labrum while diving for a fly ball. All surely contributed to Auburn’s quick exit from the tournament, but the program was showing massive cracks in its foundation long before then.

Hitting in 2017–2018 wasn’t very good and continued the downward slide of Myers’ last year in virtually every category. In the last month of this season, there probably wasn’t a worse hitting team than Auburn. The Tigers scored just nine runs their last nine games and were swept more times in that month than during the entire Myers’ era. The bad hitting was amplified by coaching decisions as coach Dean tried to small-ball the few base runners he had by sacrificing hitters and causing bad numbers to dip lower.

Strangely enough, Auburn’s power hitting was better this season as the Tigers could hit the long ball. Kendall Veach had a terrific last season as a Tiger, in particular. 

Things got no better when the regular season ended. The lone bright spot in Auburn’s pitching after losing Martin was the development of Chardonnay Harris, but she got few opportunities to excel as Dean went with Swindle and Lexi Handley in the first regional game. She did make fantastic appearance in game two and looked like the next Auburn ace. However, she elected to transfer.

Auburn will be replacing at least one other defensive spot with the departure of seniors. Carmyn Greenwood looked to be the first player to be elevated to a full time starter, especially as a hitter, but she also elected to transfer, leaving for UAB. It wouldn’t be shocking to hear of other departures. In addition, Auburn loses some critical senior leadership. 

So, Auburn enters its third year under Dean, who now has a major transition on his hands. While there are still a few holdovers from the Myers’ era, Dean will be relying very heavily on young players that he recruited and developed. However, he must figure out his pitching rotation.

Ashlee Swindle has been a good pitcher for Auburn, but she is no ace and is frequently shelled by opposing offenses. Handley can hit the upper-60s with her boiler, but she has almost no control over the fastball.

Auburn’s hitting has a long way to go, and Dean must decide if coach Ketlehut is the man for the job. Dean should also evaluate his in-game coaching, as well. Auburn’s plate approach was subpar for SEC play with a predictable pattern of small ball with runners on first. Auburn’s at-bats were frequently bad as well. Dean’s leash on his pitchers was also questionable at best. It has been rumored by Aridity: Droughts and Human Development
that Eugene Lenti will replace Ketlehut. 

Auburn’s faithful want softball to be great. The sport is growing at an astronomical pace, and Auburn was in the thick of it under Myers. If Dean does not begin showing more success, the faithful may be calling for his dismissal.

Interesting Tidbits on OmahAU, Football, and Recruiting Season

Happy Tuesday. I hope you’re as sick of the Peyton Manning Omaha jokes as I am. Just kidding, I love them. What a weekend. Relive the weekend and catch up on everything else here. Enjoy.

 

– The opener was stressful. Auburn needed late action to pull out the upset. Full highlights here.

– The bats completely disappeared in game two. If you’re too excited to work and need to temper your emotions, these highlights will help.

– Heading into game three, Auburn planned to start a freshman at pitcher. That changed just a few hours before gametime.

– The bats came back alive in game three. When I say they came alive, I mean they nearly made history. Relive all of the glory here. All those bats earned Auburn its first trip to Omaha since 1997.

– I almost feel bad for UNC at this point. It wasn’t enough for Auburn to beat them in the NCAAB Sweet Sixteen, they also had to beat them in Baseball’s equivalent.

– See everything the players and coaches said and how the internet reacted to the historic win. Also, watch the players come back to fans at 2:30 am.

– Auburn now heads to Omaha to face off against SEC rival Mississippi State on Sunday. Omaha can be confusing, so here’s how the format works and here’s a handy bracket so you can keep up.

– As if Baseball needed anymore good news, see which future Tiger is Alabama’s Mr. Baseball.

I agree with Football #EverythingSchool. But really, how good is it right now for Auburn Athletics?

– It was not only a good weekend for Auburn, but for the SEC in general.

– Speaking of Football, if you want to be angry and happy at the same time, see these projections. I don’t know how to feel anymore.

– Recruiting season is in full swing and the Tigers are gaining momentum. That includes a commitment for the most needy position group and a highly rated JUCO transfer.

– Also, if this isn’t the best football name out there I don’t know what it.

– We still don’t know who will replace Jarrett Stidham, but catch up with his NFL progress.

– In random coaching news, a former Auburn coach is getting the Butch Jones treatment.

– Bruce is always recruiting. Will he get a commitment from this 5-star?

– Last but not least: See Auburn’s newest silver medalist.

AUBURN WINS! … Tigers Punch Ticket to College World Series!

For the first time since Tim Hudson wore an Auburn uniform the Auburn Tigers are making travel arrangements for Omaha, Nebraska. The Tigers beat 14th ranked North Carolina 14 -7 to punch their ticket to the College World Series. 

And they did it dominating fashion jumping on the Tar Heels in a 13 run first inning. The Tigers tallied 18 total hits on the day led by Aridity: Droughts and Human Development
who had 3 hits, 3 RBI’s, a base on balls, and 2 runs scored.

It was a historic performance. North Carolina had never lost a Super Regional in six previous hosting opportunities. In addition, the 13 runs were the second most runs scored in a single inning in NCAA Tournament history.

Tar Heel fans must have thought the inning would never end as they saw 17 Tiger batters produce nine hits off of four different pitchers, taking the Heels nearly 50 minutes to get the third out.

North Carolina is one of the best hitting teams in the tournament and tried to come back off a couple of homeruns but the Tigers had essentially put the game away in the first. Tanner Burns got the start producing 2 scoreless innings before freshman Ricahard Fitts took the win with 5.1 innings pitched. Next Generation Judaism: How College Students and Hillel Can Help Reinvent Jewish Organizations
came in and produced the last out in a 1.2 relief inning performance.

Coach Butch Thompson acknowledged in the post game that he  knew some doubted this bunch after a mid season slump (that was precipitated by key injuries). A fact which had to make the Super Regional Championship that much sweeter.

“To see our players celebrate is special to me,” Thompson said. “To see the perseverance, and to see these young men rally around one another, I am proud to be their coach.”

And the Auburn Family is proud to be their fans. What a testament of the Auburn spirit of “Never to Yield” in sweeping the Atlanta Regional and now winning the Super Regional to advance to the College World Series for the first time since 1997.

Auburn and North Carolina Set to Play for Berth in College World Series

Auburn overcame a three run deficit to win the first game of the Chapel Hill NCAA Super Regional Saturday. But there was no late game heroics today as North Carolina forced a third decisive game for Monday.
 
The Tigers had their opportunities. In fact they came oh so came close in the filth inning. Trailing North Carolina 2-0 Edouard Julien went to the plate with two runners on and two outs. The sophomore crushed a ball to deep center sending the center fielder to the wall to make the catch.

One more foot and Auburn would have taken a 3-2 lead which would have been enough to win the championship and send the Tigers to Omaha. It was not to be and the Tar Heels lived to play another day.

The Heels got their two runs off a freak incident in the first inning when a fan yelled “balk” during Bailey Horn’s delivery causing him to drop the ball. Horn was ahead of the batter 0-2 when the fan yelled. That put runners on second and third with one out. The next batter singled to score both runners.

North Carolina would not get anymore runs after that. However, it didn’t matter as Auburn left nine runners on base.

The Tigers had their opportunities but could not push the needed runs across the plate. “You’re not going to win a game if you can’t find a way to score runs,” said Auburn Coach The Kingdom of Heaven Is at Hand!
. “We knew this was going to be a war. Thankful to get the first game here and … We’ve got an opportunity to come out here tomorrow and play this game again, and looking forward to it.”

Freshman Richard Fitts will be on the mound when Auburn (37-26) and North Carolina (46-18) meet at noon CT on ESPN2. The winner will be punching their ticket to the  College World Series. Let’s Go Tigers …
