After freshman shortstop Kristen Brown homered off Georgia Tech’s Hope Rush to lead off the bottom of the first inning of their game on Monday, she dove into a pile of her teammates who vaulted her into the air in some sort of human catapult/trampoline move. It was unlike any other celebration I had ever seen.
The celebration seems to be the norm for North Carolina. A few batters later, Constance Orr homered to make it 3-0, and she also jumped into the mosh pit. The only difference is Orr went in backwards, and was raised up by her teammates like she was sitting in a chair at a Bar Mitzvah party.
It’s all fun and games until someone dives through their teammates’ arms and lands flat on their face
