Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
Radio: CTSN - 99.1 FM (for those of you into that kind of thing).
FYI: The season is underway.
McCleney gets the first hit on the 2013 season and then promptly steals second.
The score 1-0 Bama.
"McCleney scores the first run as well, breaking for home on a comebacker off the bat of Kaila Hunt."
Not sure what that means except that it's 1-0.
You don't know what that means?
I'm saying comebacker is vague, leaves a lot to interpretation.
For those who don't follow softball, the run went like this:
Braud struck out swinging, McCleney singled through the left side and stole second. She advanced to third on a wild pitch and scored on a throwing error by the pitcher after a ground ball by Hunt.
(See, comebacker says nothing about a bad throw).
BTW, Jury is pitching for Alabama.
First big play in the top second. Illinois loads the bases with no outs and Kayla Braud gets the force at the plate on a throw from left field.
See, that's something you just don't see in baseball.
Illinois ties the game on a bases-loaded walk. 1-1 in the second.
Heading into the bottom of the 3rd 2-1 Illinois

Still in the 3rd, 2-1 Illinois Bama has runners at the corners w/no one out.
Bases loaded walk and Bama leads 3-2. Bases are still loaded with no outs.
Looks like someone just hit a Grand Slam. 7-2 Bama.
It was Davis with the HR. Still nobody out for the Tide in the B3, btw.
Keima Davis hit the grand slam as Bama now leads 7-2. Apparently it's a long way down the left field line so Keke had to hit it pretty well to get it out of there.
Yep. Living right when you can get a 4-run bomb from the bottom of your lineup on opening day.
Pour it on!
Murph likes to put a good hitter in the 9 hole to help the line-up turn over more easily. Keke has some power too. I saw her hit about 260 foot bomb last year.
In the top of the 5th it's still 7-2 Bama.
Ronald Reagan: Man is not free unless government is limited.
Jury lacked enthusiasm, but she and the team hung in there for the WIN! Kiema Davis had a great at bat to get the Grand Slam.
My wife and I finally got to see the BAMA Ladies in person. Hope to see Jackie pitch in the 2nd game! We're here for the weekend.

According to radio guy Chad Haynie you should get your wish tonight in the 2nd game.. McCleney is my favorite freshman. She played CF today.
Game 2: Alabama vs. Northern Iowa slated to start at 7 p.m.
Haylie McCleney made a great play from center early in game. I see why they are excited about her.
Bama is drawing a crowd tonight. Of course, we are used to playing in front of large crowds at Rhoads Stadium.
