Texas High School Softball Catcher Keeps Drilling Batters In The Head… Intentionally?

Softball hit

Man, that’s a low blow.

We’ve all seen some heated moments in high school sports. From players getting into fights, to coaches cussing out referees and umpires, and even students in the student section and parents getting into arguments/fights.

But this… is a little different.

It all went down in Cisco, Texas, during the McCamey’s Area Championship between Cisco High School and McCamey.

In the video footage, you can see the McCamey catcher look to throw down to third base. However, the catcher doesn’t even come close to throwing it to third base…

She drills the batter square in the face with the ball.

And this didn’t happen once. It happened twice… and the first time, nobody even appeared to anywhere near third base.

Luckily the girls were wearing a facemask, so it didn’t severely injure them. However, the move appears to be completely premeditated, and the fact it happened twice doesn’t help the catcher’s case.

And here’s the kicker… it’s apparently happened to other teams playing against McCamey, making the very valid argument that this is an intentional act to either try and injure players, or to get outs for “interference.”

The batter appeared to be outside the batter’s box both times, so it wasn’t likely that they were in the catcher’s way. If anything that throw looks like it would hit the dugout if the batter wasn’t in the way.

The second incident appeared to be much worse, as the batter hit the deck and basically had to crawl to the dugout.

According to KMID, the Texas University Interscholastic League said in a statement that it:

“Is aware of an incident that occurred during the McCamey vs. Cisco Softball Playoff Series and is in contact with the school administrations to gather additional information.”

It’s unclear if either of the players were injured by the move, but regardless, it’s still a bad look for the catcher, and the McCamey softball team as a whole.
