    Softball is different than baseball.

    Transfer and lose a year has been a rule as long as I can remember.

    In softball, a school is able to release someone to play immediately where baseball is not. The softball players school/coach also has the right not to allow them to play right away and make them sit out a year but the player typically can go to a review board at the school for final determination. In effect, UL could have blocked all three players from playing immediately.

    Technically correct but Aleah could have transferred without sitting out a year because she had already graduated.

    Since 2008. It dropped the transfer rate between 4-year schools by about 60%.

    Why does softball adhere to different rules than every other sport

    Actually the transfer rule only applies to basketball (men & womens), football, baseball, and hockey. All other NCAA sports aren't subject to the rule.

    Because it is it's own sport. Every sport determines how they want things done. It isn't something from on high.
