EAST LANSING - The 2014 Michigan State softball season was one to forget for Coach Jacquie Joseph.

 The death of assistant coach Charles Fobbs in a pre-season car crash and injuries to their top two pitchers made for an emotional year, as the Spartans finished with a 12-37 record.

 “Was it the worst year of my life? Yeah,” Joseph said. “It’s because, for a lot of reasons. I lost one of my very close friends who happened to be on my staff.  It was incredibly difficult time, and on top of it we didn’t have a great season.”
