As the softball world mourns the sudden passing of JMU’s Lauren Bernett, our episode will reflect on her life and the continuing fight for mental health. We discuss the impact social media and increasing pressures have on softball players and us as a society. The guys open up and share their personal experiences during this episode.

We also will air Eric Lopez’s interview from Monday with Boston Head Coach Ashley Waters. This weekend, the Terriers enter the nation’s longest winning streak at 23 games. Coach Waters talks about how her team has brought it all together this season and coaching with a bit of extra incentive for this season.

We wrap up the show with final thoughts and some numbers that help those in need. If you or someone you love needs help, contact the NAMI (National Association on Mental Illness) HelpLine at 1-800-950-NAMI (6264) or text NAMI to 741741.
