Ralph Weekly told us in the interview I posted in the Softball Preview thread that she was cleared to hit this fall, but is not fully cleared to catch yet, which was expected. Should be 100% ready by the time they start practice for real in January.
I think that she will not be doing any squatting to catch for a while longer from what I hear.

Shipman, Webber, Seggern, Phillips and Malloy we might see this offense take a huge step up in production next season. Shipman can DH we have plenty of catchers.

Ralph says she will be 100 percent by the time the season arrives. I don't know if i would ever want her to catch again considering the injury. I think she could DH or play the outfield a lot less stressful positions. Of course if she is 100 percent then we'll probably see her catching again.

May be right but I expect her folks will make that decision and they will let Allie help them decide. She will have nearly a year of rehab and I expect to see her back there again. As in baseball softball needs to be strong up the middle and she will help that but short and second is a question mark. Who knows about center but Miloy will be in the field somewhere. We have got to play the ladies that can hit and give defense a little patience I think. If CS ends up at short then that will help but I really love her at 3rd base myself. It seems like every year in the last 10-12 I wonder who the heck is going to be out proven pitchers because we seem always have potential and not much else!
