Sanchez didnt just paralyze teams from the mound. She batted .565 with a .661 on-base percentage, a .913 slugging percentage with 20 stolen bases and 29 runs scored. Once she reached base, she was a blur of legs and arms propelling her around the diamond, which always looked small whenever she was aboard.
We had it in our head that [to win the game] we had to get her out, said Tottenvilles coach, Cathy Morano, who offered Sanchez the ultimate compliment when she admitted, after escaping Bayside 5-4 in the semis, that she was concerned her players were focusing too much on stopping Sanchez and not enough on the rest of the players.
