Alabama softball center fielder Elissa Brown stole two bases Sunday against Kentucky to give her 40 for the season and 101 for her career.
“It’s really cool. I just thank (head coach Patrick Murphy) for trusting me and it’s an awesome accomplishment,” Brown said.
The junior is seventh on the Crimson Tide’s all-time list and needs just one more to tie for sixth with Jordan Praytor. The Tide’s career leader is Brittany Rogers with 198.
Brown has been caught stealing just 10 times in her career – three this season, three last season and four her freshman year.
“It’s just God-given,” she said of her speed. “I woke up one day and I was fast.”
So, were her parents fast?
“They probably used to be,” Brown said.
