Balkovec was discussing a decision at first base as the Tarpons trailed 1-0, saying the Daytona Turtles first baseman had come out of the pocket into a double play. But Isabella Robb wasn’t willing to accept it, so she kicked Balkovec out of the game.
Daytona scored two more runs in the top of the ninth, but Tampa rallied with four runs in the bottom half to win the game in walk-off form.

Balkovec is in his second season as manager of the Tarpons. She previously worked with the St. Louis Cardinals and Houston Astros in strength and conditioning before joining the Yankees in 2019 as a minor league hitting coach.
Balkovec, a former softball catcher at Creighton and New Mexico, has a master’s degree in kinesiology from LSU and another in human movement sciences from Vrije University in the Netherlands.
