Alabama plays Drake at 3 p.m, and Green Bay at 5 p.m.
Radio: CTSN - 99.1 FM
Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
Looks like another good year for the girls. This team just seems to reload (kindof like the football team). CPM has really developed a great program.
The Dynasty is Here!

Looks like we have a delay? changed starting time?
Looks like 4:30 start now for Alabama's first game.
It's a tournament. Probably just backed up from earlier games.
If you'd told me 20 years ago that I would be getting excited about a softball game, I would have called you crazy. I just can't help but really enjoy our softball program. It's turned into one of my favorite sporting events.
Same here BamaBrown.Love football and softball.
Yeah, same with me. I am almost as addicted to our women's softball as I am football. Almost (g) but not quite that much. Still, love it.. Love the game. As a former baseball player, and slow pitch softball player - I am amazed at these girls abilities and even more their bats. Unless you have hit off a top level College fast pitcher, we have no idea how hard it is. The distance is so short from release of the ball to the plate. Unreal hand eye corr. bat speed from so many of these girls.
I love the game and very glad we have an elite program as well.
3 - 0 BAMA 2out bottom of 1st.

Also loving our TEAM speed this year. It seems we have 4 interchangeable girls at the top of the order (spots 1 and 2) who all can steal a base at any given time. 2 being Freshmen. That's not counting others throughout the lineup. Team Speed has def. picked up this year overall.
Speaking of speed, McCleney just hit an inside the park HR.
LOL.. I'm right there with you. In the final championship game against Oklahoma last spring I was so nervous in that last inning that I could not watch it. I had to go to the bedroom and had my wife shout updates to me.
I actually drove up and watched that game in person, the first fast pitch game I have seen live. As you know the game didn't end until after midnight. Really enjoyed it and look forward to seeing those girls back in OKC later this year.
Yeah and now a Triple. Wow this girl seems to have such a good bat, and obvious speed. Seems to be a real real good one. Also, can't wait to see more of Andrea Hawkins.
As fast as last year's outfield was, this season's is probably faster. That is crazy! Listening to CRB on the radio just now was awesome. You can tell she loves Bama.
Sewell having control problems; 6 - 2 BAMA.
Rally going top of 5th for BAMA.
Now 8 - 2 BAMA going to bottom of 5th.

I was there with you until I had 2 girls and started coaching them in Softball. They ate now 17 & 15 and this is my first year not coaching my 15 yo and 3rd for my 17 yo. They are both on the High School team. Love this game.
At the end of five innings, Alabama leads Drake, 8-2.
Heading top seventh, still 8-2.
Game ending double play....BAMA wins 8-2.
3-0 to start the year with 3 different winning pitchers. Todays winner - Lauren Sewell
.....ROLL Lady TIDE ROLL
Bama wins 8-2. Good first start by Sewell. She is coming off an ACL injury and did well. McCleney is simply in a word, fantastic.
Mclenney is awesome. She can fly and is very athletic. I am excited to see her and Danae Hayes development over the next couple of years. I am partial they both played at the high school i coached at.
2nd game underway and just like that Bama is up 1-0. McCleney singles, Hwakins singles, MCleney to 3rd and Hawkins to 2nd. Braud singles in McCleney and then promptly steals 2nd. Tide has 2 runners in scoring position with no outs.
3-0 Bama, sac fly from Conley and then a single by Danae Hays.
