    I guess I'd assumed so. All we've seen her do is practice throwing and consistently hitting the dunk zone on the preacher's charity dunk tank. Didn't George say she had a pretty good throwing arm? And you'd think that if she wasn't aiming to specialize in throwing that there'd have been some batting and fielding practice; not just throwing the ball. (Though, yeah, it's 30 minute sitcom and they've got better things to show than a montage of all her training)

    Though thinking about it I guess she did have a glove on this episode when the coach tosser her a ball and told her to warm up. So maybe she is fielding or covering a base.

    Don't pitchers wear a glove when they warm up? They need to be able to catch the ball that the catcher throws back to them.

    I thought it as pretty clear she was going to be a pitcher. A strong and accurate arm without seeing if she can field or hit makes it even more likely the coach (And her dad) were thinking she could be a pitcher. Hitting a target at a dunk tank repeatedly screams pitcher (or QB in football).

    I loved when she was beating the tar out of that jerk and NO ONE tried to stop it. Not other players, the other coach, parents no one.

    Everything we saw of Missy was pitching. Throwing with her dad. Learning the curve ball. Throwing a curve at the boy she liked then the only try out thing we saw was pitching. We never saw her even lift a bat before this week. Hence, pitcher.

    I loved the transformation of the pitcher's face from smirk to fear, as Missy charged the mound. :)

    Every position on the baseball field requires a good arm. The fact that she's got a good arm doesn't automatically mean she's gonna be a pitcher. In fact, with relatively little experience in baseball compared to all the boys on the team, I'd think they'd start her in right field and then move her around as she gets more used to fielding.

    But having said that, I acknowledge the show is probably going to make her a pitcher. I'm simply saying that based on what we've seen, she could be used anywhere (except maybe catcher).

    I was excited to see Melissa Peterman in this episode, she played Barbara Jean on 'Reba'.

    And then looking online I see this is her 7th episode of Young Sheldon. I have no idea why I missed seeing her in the other 6 episodes. I've always enjoyed her, I think she is funny.

    No idea either since one of them featured her in a feud with Meemaw.

    Meemaw is popular with every older gentleman she meets.

    As an older gentleman myself, I find that very believable.

    When she was out playing catch with George a few episodes ago didn't he start teaching her how to throw a curve ball? That's a throw only a pitcher needs.
    (Though still, I guess learning pitches doesn't mean you're going to be a pitcher. I just kind of assumed that's where the show was going with her)

    I wonder how they are going to do Sheldon in college with Missy/Georgie/George elsewhere. Is George going to go to the college with Sheldon?

    Did you see last week's episode? They seemed to set up a solution for that with Dr. Sturgis's University offering a scholarship to Sheldon and a coaching position to George. Sheldon can still live at home and George would drive him every day.

    That was the one I was referring to. Just because they offered a coaching position now doesn't mean they will next year.

    And we have a season to deal with it. Sheldon is currently 10. He goes to college at 11 and graduates at 14.

    One thing that I don't get... wasn't the University supposed to be REALLY far away? like not far enough for a convenient daily drive? (Yes I know Sturgis rode his bike though, but it always seemed a hassle for grandma to drive him once a week back and forth..)

    More Star Trek symbols flashing on the screen (not to mention Sheldon dressed as Spock). There's definitely something Star Trek related coming to CBS in the near future.
