Later today, our first regional-prep post will be published. But I happened to come across this video via social media yesterday, and I couldn't *not* share it here.
Ball State junior pitcher Kelsey Schifferdecker was struck by a batted ball early in the season, and miraculously returned less than six weeks later to finish the season on the team's active roster and help lead the Cardinals to the MAC tournament title and an NCAA tournament berth.
Joel Godett of Ball State media put together an excellent piece on Schifferdecker and her injury, recovery, and return to the circle. Featuring interviews with several of her teammates and coaches, as well as the young lady herself, it's well-worth ten minutes of your lunch break.
