Ever wonder what a non-batting pitcher does while the team is hitting? Marissa Drewrey made the most of her time while the rest of the team was in the batting cages this morning. Trainer Vanessa Morales and Drewrey went off on an alligator hunt. There was a small swampy lake about a half mile from the softball field that was reported to have baby alligators. After a little bit of searching, the two found what they were looking for. A baby alligator on the shore. He made the quick retreat the moment the girls found him, but not before he could be captured on film.
Marissa later informed the team that the alligator was named Arika.

Marissa and the rest of the team will hunt a different set of Gators later this evening, taking on Florida at 8 p.m. Eastern Time. The game will be broadcast live on ESPN.
