Casey Goodman promoted as softball's associate head coach
It was a pretty simple request, really, but a 10-year-old Casey Goodman wasn’t having any of it. Goodman, who was recently promoted to associate head coach for Lamar State College Port Arthur’s softball team, had no interest in a request from her youth softball coach, who also happened to be her mother. “She wanted me to be catcher,” Goodman said. “I told her ‘no’.” Her mother, Dorothy, told her she could sit the bench. “So I put on the catcher’s gear,” Casey said.
