I have never seen a team play so well under pressure. This is a great thing for coaches as usually it is the coaches that have to have a pep talk or make a team believe in themselves.</p> <p> This team of Lady Indians get out on the field and at bat and take care of business. I am not sure that I have seen a position they have been put in where they cave under pressure.</p>
