Sharlize Palacios excited to face sister Sashel for first time when Arizona hosts Team Mexico

When Arizona softball hosts Team Mexico on Saturday, it will mark the first time UA catcher Sharlize Palacios has ever played with, or against, her older sister Sashel.

In an official setting, anyway.

“If you count backyard baseball, we have and I’ve killed her, don’t let her say any different. But, no, in a real game I’ve never played her,” Sharlize said.

She’s excited she finally gets that opportunity.

“I’ve been dreaming of this moment,” Sharlize said. ‘“I always make fun of my parents. I’m like, ‘you guys didn’t plan it right, we’re not close enough to play with each other.
