Rewatch the game
After Forest Area’s Izzy Flick walked the bases loaded with the Fires leading 8-5, Orr was aggressive at the plate swinging at the first pitch, an inside, chest-high fastball that she ripped over the head of left-fielder Anna Stitt.
Without a fence at the East Forest field, the ball rolled well behind Sitt, and Orr raced around the bases for the inside-the-park granny that gave Redbank Valley its first lead of the game, 9-8.
“It was inside, just where I liked it,” Orr said. “I put all my power into it, and we got it in. I am not the fastest person, but everyone on base got on their horse and that just gave me the motivation to get on mine. And, we got her done.”
