Kentucky Softball survived opening weekend of the NCAA Softball Tournament and now a best-of-three series with Alabama stands in the way of the Wildcats and a spot in the College World Series.
Game 1 will begin tomorrow at 1 p.m. down in Tuscaloosa (Alabama is the host, unfortunately) and fans unable to make the trip are more than welcome to join forces at KSBar and Grille for a Friday afternoon watch party. Just tell your boss you’re cutting out early for Memorial Day weekend.
Then on Saturday we will run it back for Game 2 with a 2 p.m. first pitch time, followed by Game 3 at 4 p.m. on Sunday, if the series needs a third game. Ideally, we close it out in two and move on to Oklahoma City for the World Series.
If the Cats can get past the Crimson Tide, they’ll be only the second UK team to reach the World Series, joining Coach Lawson’s 2014 squad on a very short list of UK teams.
Good luck to UK down in Alabama.
And a side note, how does our Kids’ Logo Contest winner’s logo look on the graphic?
