The guys aren't the only ones swinging bats in the spring. You can follow the squad throughout the season and even get the latest on recruiting.

This weekend we host the Liberty Softball Classic.

Rutgers, Robert Morris, Sacred Heart, Cleveland State, and Quinnipiac come to Lynchburg. I haven't complied a scouting report on the teams yet. Thus I know nothing about them, other than Rutgers, who we played in Texas.

Hopefully, the weather will cooperate.

LU has the second longest "home" win streak in the nation, behind Florida Gators. Julia DiMartino has retired the last 28 batters she has faced.

It's hard to get a good report on many northern teams, in that they have played so few games. Quinnipaic has only played 5 games, (2-3). Their pitching seems somewhat decent, but their schedule has been weak.
Rutgers is probably best of the visiting teams. Their record isn't great, but if my memory is correct they lost some close games at Texas A&M.

What concerns me is that this will be the second "tourney" that has average to below average teams. When we go out west it will be a large step up in competition.

The weather will always be a factor for attendance. Having said that, an appearance in the super regionals with TV coverage would, IMHO, generate a lot more local and student interest. A world series appearance would be a blockbuster. As much as some of us love the game, the majority love a winner more!
