Mike White apologizes for ejection vs. Oklahoma State

On Friday, Texas softball coach Mike White issued an apology for his actions in a semifinal showdown with No. 7 Oklahoma State at the Big 12 tournament.

Between the first and second innings, White was ejected from the contest. Upon leaving the field, White turned around and extended his middle finger in the direction of an umpire.

White’s ejection capped a dramatic opening inning at the Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Okla. In the bottom of the first frame, Texas caught Chelsea Alexander in a rundown after former Longhorn Miranda Elish grounded a ball back to pitcher Hailey Dolcini. Mary Iakopo tagged Alexander out at home but after Oklahoma State objected and the play was reviewed, Iakopo was called for obstruction and Alexander was credited with scoring the game’s first run.
