In the episode of In The Circle, we are joined by legendary UCLA Head Coach Sue Enquist, who shares her time at UCLA both as a player and a coach. She discusses how the Bruin Bubble came to be, the changes she’s seen in the sport, and what she’s been up to lately.
Also, Eric Lopez and Victor Anderson take a look at some other news in the softball world, including UTEP making a late coaching change, USA Softball announcing more dates for the “Stand Beside Her” Tour, and a previous guest being inducted into the USA Softball Hall of Fame.
