While everyone was focused on basketball transfers and F1 racing, Liberty defeated Lipscomb 8-0 today to advance to semi finals at Kennesaw beginning Thursday va Jacksonville.
Kirby threw a 4 hit shutout. Autumn Bishop and Amber Bishop-Riley each had 2 hits. (all doubles I believe) in their final home game. Emily Sweat had a 2 run HR in her final game at home. Madison Via was 1-3 in final game.

Yes, playing at Kennesaw's crummy stadium. Thursday, Friday, Saturday. Hopefully we win 3 games and bring home the trophy.
Tournament was supposed to be at LU, but sources tell me that the 4 Florida schools got together and told the conference that they did not have enough money to travel to Lynchburg. Thus the ASUN caved in to please them.

Ballcoach, when was the last time you were there? The KSU website describes Bailey Park as a "state-of-the art...luxury stadium" and shows lots of impressive pictures! It looks much nicer than the BSC championship game we attended at Radford's field years ago.

BC has an opinion on something he knows nothing about? Imagine that.

I was there in 2019 when Liberty played there. It's a converted baseball field. Worst parking of any campus I've been on. Looks like a high school field. But it probably is better than Radford.

Ballcoach, Kennesaw State University has 41,000 students. Did you expect to park right next to the stadium? Is KSU's stadium better than Longwood's, too?

Too close to call. I'll let you know after I go there this weekend. But neither is worthy of hosting a conference tournament.

Says the only person in the world who would actually want to "sit beyond outfield fence and watch the game" ANYWHERE.

I know some LU fans who sit beyond outfield fence every home game, and most of the away games, if available.. At some venues, outfield is best place to watch a game. In February I watched several games from beyond fence at Alabama.

Parking at KSU was fine. I was there in 2018 when LU played them.

In RPI rankings, we're up to #19, which is probably the highest in history for LU in any sport. Our RPI is ahead of several ranked teams. I think we'll get NCAA bid, regardless of ASUN Tournament.
All softball fans should start "thinking about Clemson Regional", if you know what I mean.

No, it’s not.

I don’t think the nuance intended in that phrase is something you understand.

I wish posters on ASOR were smart enough to talk hitting, RBIs, home runs, pitching and fielding, instead of the BS ya'll turn every thread into.
If you want to talk Psychology, find a Psychology Board somewhere.



There's one on this board, that if Liberty won a National Championship in any sport other than Kick Ball or Pickle Ball, he would be negative.

Feel free to share your thoughts on the hitting, RBIs, home runs, pitching and fielding. You have watched more games than I and I would be far more interested to hear about your thoughts on those then the typical hyperbole and complaining you do.

You have a lot of first hand knowledge of this team you could provide us. Most would welcome that. (except for PH, he'd still give you a hard time :lol: )

I honestly believe this softball team can end up being the all-sports best at Liberty. What I take exception with is the "regardless of what happens" part. The combination of their young talent with the bonus year from the Bishop twins has set things up on a tee for them. Now they need to crush it down the fairway, because the rough is going to get deep.
