The Savannah Bananas is a traveling baseball team known for doing viral, trendy dances mid-game that sometimes include members of the other team, and even umpires. Alo was introduced in Saturday’s game as she joined the Bananas for one night in OKC.
Alo received a bring welcome from the crowd as the two-time Women’s College World Series champion and two-time National Player of the Year stepped up to bat. Alo is a fan favorite in Oklahoma as she became one of the most decorated players in Sooners history under head coach Patty Gasso.
The Oklahoma Sooners softball team continues to make waves in national media after Saturday’s win against Clemson broke the NCAA Division 1 record for most consecutive wins (48). Patty Gasso’s squad advanced to the WCWS on Saturday and look to take home their third straight national championship, and in the event that the Sooners can make it happen, they would become the second team ever to accomplish that feat.
Alo was a huge piece of each of the first two World Series wins as not only did she shatter the home run record for the Sooners, she played a big part in developing some of the nation’s best softball players including the likes of Tiare Jennings, Jayda Coleman, and Grace Lyons.
