“I want kids who are going to go out there and compete, lay it all on the table. I think the big thing about this game is you have to care a lot about it.” — Mike Candrea
NOTES: Candrea, Arizona’s accomplished softball coach, is quoted as saying this in Anthony Gimino’s blog at TucsonCitizen.com. The Wildcats host an NCAA regional starting this Friday when they play North Dakota State. The rallying cry for the Wildcats as they enter the postseason as underdogs to win the national title: “Why not us?” With Candrea leading the way, that’s a good question.
