2010: Megan Langenfeld's walk-off home run versus Arizona

Megan Langenfeld was one of the best players in college softball during her senior season with UCLA. But for one postseason, and particularly one week in Oklahoma City, she might have been the best player in the world. All Langenfeld did was hit .706 with four home runs and earn three victories in the circle for a pitching-starved team. There were plenty to choose from, but none of her 12 hits that week proved more memorable than a walk-off home run to beat archrival Arizona in extra innings in the opening game of the championship series. A blister prevented Langenfeld from pitching the next night, but that blast from the first game seemed to take the wind out of the Wildcats' sails as the Bruins went on to win their 11th NCAA title. -- Graham Hays
