Tuscaloosa, Ala. (WIAT) — The Alabama Softball team departed Tuscaloosa Regional Airport Tuesday morning, to head to the Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City, OK.
Eighth-seeded Alabama is making its 12th Women’s College World Series appearance, its first since 2016. The Crimson Tide punched its ticket with a series win last weekend over Texas, defeating the Longhorns in three games at Rhoads Stadium. It marked Alabama’s 10th Super Regional series win since the current postseason format was introduced in 2005, with nine of those series wins coming at home.
The Tide opens play at the WCWS against top-seeded Oklahoma on Thursday, May 30 at 8:30 p.m. CT on ESPN.
