The Trib: Chelsea Thomas is the gift that keeps giving
It was the week before the 2007 Big 12 Tournament, and, as a rule, the Missouri softball coach does not scout or watch high school games during the season. Earleywine was not about to blow off practice to drive eight hours round-trip to see a lightly recruited pitcher he knew about only from a grainy video her father had sent him.
"Outlandish for me to even think about it," he said.
Yet the prospect’s family insisted, and there was something about that video — the way it sounded like the firing of a double-barreled shotgun each time the ball thumped into the catcher’s mitt — that piqued his curiosity.
He had to see Chelsea Thomas.
After watching her pitch, Earleywine called his coaches. Pete D’Amour was inching through the drive-thru line at Hardee’s when the number of the boss flashed on his phone.
"Our lives are about to change," Earleywine told his pitching coach, who was then a manager.
