The recent Rambler Rumble allowed me to watch a lot of collegiate softball teams I don't ordinarily get to see. One of those teams was the Butler Bulldogs coached by Scott Hall.
Coach Hall is entering his 10th season leading the Bulldogs. The 2016 won the Big East tourney, advancing to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in program history. Overall, the Bulldogs are 214-248 and 88-89 in conference during Hall's tenure.
Prior to coaching Butler, Coach Hall was a very successful high school coach. During his years coaching high school, Hall led his team to eight conference championships and compiled a 285-87 overall record.
Coach Hall is very excited about the 2020 season. The 4-1 record during the Rambler Rumble was an excellent way to start the season.
I'm adding the Bulldogs to my teams to watch this season. I appreciate Coach Hall's time and I thank Loyola University for the hospitality and access throughout the tourney.
