TULSA, Oklahoma - A Tulsa man picked the wrong SUV to burglarize early Friday morning.

Tulsa Police say four women leaving a south Tulsa bar took the law into their own hands and caught Jonathon Ethriedge inside their SUV.

The four college softball players were having a reunion of sorts at Baker's Street Pub near 71st and Memorial.

When they left the bar at around 12:30 a.m., two of them noticed someone in their SUV.

The man, 29-year-old Jonathon Ethriedge got out of the SUV and ran, but not before the four women caught up with him and held him on the ground until Tulsa Police could arrive.

Tulsa Police say Ethriedge is also suspected of taking a wallet and cell phone from a woman inside the bar.

Jonathon Ethriedge was booked into the Tulsa County jail on complaints of larceny, burglary and public intoxication.

So will they pitch his balls overhand or underhand?

Good question, but I don't think he has any.

This story would have been way better if they had their bats.

Oh, and if they knocked him down by smashing his head with one of those 90 mph fast balls.

Can you re-write it and ping me to the new post?

Lets see - fast-pitch softball - strong girl swinging the bat - that should pulverize those testes!

Or more likely out on a double date...

He was probably drunk. I saw the Coors Lite Silver Bullets, a professional women’s softball team, play the Cape Cod League all stars. While is wasn’t a competitive game, I would hate to tangle with any one of the Silver Bullets, let alone four of them pissed off with a couple of beers in them and me knee walking.

I used to have a class at Penn State (sounds like a joke now, doesn’t it?) and one year there were 6 softball players that signed up.

These girls were 6ft tall on average and more muscular/aggressive than many of the guys in the class. I’m a really big guy but the tallest players were almost intimidating. It was the only time in my life I had to look up when speaking to a woman. Most men would be wise not to anger four of them.

I felt a little bad for them because it seemed like they could only date the largest of men. They were beautiful but would never wear heels and few guys approached them. Maybe that’s where the supposed female athlete/lesbian connection comes from?

Some of those women softball players are quite mannish.

The connection comes from the same connection with the WNBA. And if you don't like it Martina Navratilova will come over and kick your butt.

I'm only 5 foot 8 inches tall and, back in the day, I would have asked them out.

Of course when I graduated high school I was only 5 foot 3 inches tall and was dating a 5 foot 11 inch amazon.

Seems like when you're smaller than almost every girl in the school, the girls height doesn't mean that much any more.

If the girls played catcher, pitcher and 1st and 3rd base, then he wouldn’t be alive today.

No doubt. And I don’t understand the angry lesbian stereotype, I haven’t seen that at all. 3-4 times a year, about 30 of us at work get together and play softball. The softball girls that play a lot wipe the floor with us guys.
