MLB Female Fan Series: Jayme Lamm with the Texas Rangers

Next up we have one of my favorite chicks to follow on Twitter and that’s Jayme Lamm. The all-around sports fan is a hell of a writer in her own right over at The Blonde Side and was kind enough to share with us how she fell in love with the game of baseball and the Texas Rangers in particular.

Whitmore Lake girls golfer earns college scholarship by playing with the boys

“It’s really just about how you play your game. It doesn’t matter that I’m a girl out there,” she said. “I play the ball. I play from the same tees, I’m playing the same course, I’m playing in the same conditions as everyone else.”

I don’t know how many times I have heard that so much money is left on the table each year for women entering college, NOT playing Golf.

Arkansas defeated No.1 California 3-2 in its second game at the Berkeley Regional. The victory against the Bears improves Arkansas’ overall 2012 record to 29-26 and 2-0 in postseason play. This is the first time in program history that Arkansas will play in a regional final.

The Razorbacks came out with their bats swinging in the first inning. Freshman Devon Wallace got the team going in the top of the first with a line drive to left center field. She then advanced to second on a pass ball. Sophomore Clarisa Navarro blasted a double over the centerfielder’s head bringing home Wallace and giving Arkansas the early 1-0 lead.

Sierra Bronkey singled between first and second to bring home Navarro for the 2-0 lead. Jennifer Rambo continued the hitting spree blasting a bomb over the right field wall for the 3-0 lead; her ninth home run of the season.
