Don’t slide into first base. Don’t. Do. It. Ever.
During a game against Carson-Newman, Erskine College’s Baylee Browning showed, once again, why it’s a bad idea to slide into first base. Forget that it actually slows you down and can lead to injury. No, remember that it can be awfully embarrassing.

Ouch. Let’s hope Browning’s spine is OK after that. Maybe she took a wrong turn when heading to the game. The yoga studio was the next exit.
Carson-Newman, a Division II team, won the first game of the doubleheader, 10-2, and lost the second game 8-2.
The scores, however, weren’t nearly as interesting as that slide.
