Inspirational Sports Tear Jerkers

Originally aired: Thursday, July 13, 2017

Ethan Millard welcomes former NFLers Jason Buck (BYU) and Scott Mitchell (Utah) to discuss their new podcast rivals and sports imitate life for these guys who tell some funny, inspirational and life-changing stories from their lives as professional athletes. For the Zenheadlines story, a college softball player from the University of Texas-El Paso inspires as she played through a massive injury... Kawehiokalani Netane, a senior softball player at UTEP, was given one final at-bat at the 2016 Conference USA tournament after tearing her ACL in April. Netane slapped a single to center field and was lifted for a pinch runner after she limped to first base. There were tears all around from her first base coach and teammates ... and rightfully so.
