Softball coach Margie Wright pulled the save of the year. The Fresno State football team usually wears medium length blacks socks for home and away. For the game on the old school Astro Turf in Moscow, the team wanted long socks.
Nike was unable to provide the socks soon enough. So, Wright provided 68 pairs of long white socks for Pat Hill's team.
The long socks help prevent against "rug" burns that are a common occurrence on Astro Turf.
