Michigan Softball Women and A New Era Beginning

It’s been over a week since the news came from Ann Arbor, and we’re still reeling from it. On our latest edition of In The Circle, we will hear from new Michigan Head Coach Bonnie Tholl during the show’s opening segment from Monday’s press conference. Also, Eric Lopez has some developing news about potential new foes joining Michigan in the Big 10 and what it could mean for the Pac-12.

Eric then chats with former Wolverine and Rawlings Gold Glove winner Kristina Burkhardt about her reaction to Carol Hutchins retirement. She reflects on what it was like playing for Coach Hutch and what kind of Head Coach Bonnie Tholl will be. Burkhardt discusses her journey in softball, from playing in North Carolina to Michigan and learning from her sister Ashley Burkhardt. The last word on this episode fittingly belongs to Coach Hutch herself as she spoke on Monday during her press conference on Monday afternoon.
