The United States Women’s Softball team won the gold medal in Atlanta’s 1996

Olympic games. They lost only one game. In the fifth inning against

Australia, Danielle Tyler hit a home run over the center-field fence. When

she was greeted by a swarm of well-wishing teammates at home plate she let

the excitement distract her focus and she did not STEP ON home plate. When

all of the yelling subsided, the Australian team quietly appealed to the

umpire who dramatically called Tyler out. Rather than scoring a run, Tyler’s

blast over the fence netted her team an out. As it ended up,had she stepped

on home plate, her team would have won 1-0. Instead, after seven innings of

regulation play the game was tied at 0-0. In extra innings, Australia

emerged with a 2-1 win and the U.S. team took their only loss of the

Olympics. It’s not enough to hit a ball into the seats; you have to touch

all of the bases as well.
