    Championship structure: The committee held selections on May 11-13. The 64-team field was selected from 297 NCAA Division I institutions sponsoring softball. Of the 64 teams, 32 teams received an automatic qualification with the remaining best 32 teams selected on an at-large basis.

    Regionals will be held May 17-20 on 16 campus sites. At each campus site, a four-team, double-elimination tournament will be conducted, and the 16 winning teams advance to the Super Regionals.

    Super Regionals for the championship will be held May 24-27 on eight campus sites. At each site, two teams play in a best-of-three tournament format. The winners from each site advance to the NCAA® Women’s College World Series (WCWS).

    Seeding/Sites: Teams were selected to the field of 64 teams. The top 16 teams were seeded in order, and the remaining teams are paired by geographic proximity, with the exception that teams within the same conference were not paired during regional competition.

    Championship notes: 2017 Highlights: Oklahoma defeated Florida, 5-4, to win their fourth softball championship title.

    just got 2 tix for the regional, the instructions were regional books available at 1 p today, I clicked the link at 1 p and the books were sold out, stayed on the line to find out what the heck is the deal, ended up with a regional book 2 seats behind the visitor dugout, I am guessing that visitors did not buy out KSP

    just a heads up call and chat if you get the sold out signal on line

    My wife had a different type of problem. She went on line at 1:00 and it showed all they had were single tickets available, so she got one in Section B and then when she went back to get a second ticket all of a sudden there were two together in Section A (behind with visitors dugout). BTW, we are in row 7, where are your tickets???

    You are a "little" bit closer to the action then we are................ We have seats 29 & 30 on row 7. Hopefully I can get a chance to introduce myself. I actually saw you at Saturday's Baseball game. Man, you do sit right below the section for the visiting team's fans. We lucked into great seats right behind home plate in row 10. I would have come over and said hi, but your section was really crowded it seemed. Quick question, how in the HECK did you survive the heat during that game wearing a long sleeve windbreaker under your shirt??????????????? :D:D

    may not have been me you saw I had on an ancient SEC/Gator long sleeve shirt, white front blue sleeves, it is my lightest LS shirt - use it for afternoon games to keep the sun off my arms. I'm easy to spot, old guy, pony tail, short for my weight and wearing my GatorCountry Ball cap from years ago :)
    Lets meet up on Friday at KSP.

    The oppo folks congregate just above me, I am in row 10, last row of the reserved seats, as a rule they come in earlier than Gator fans so they grab the rows right above 10, most games I can find a couple to chat with before the game, the UGA folks not so much, when the folks who have the 4 seats on either side of my 2 don't show they oppos take the seats.

    The weather summary for the weekend doesn’t look encouraging. 90% rain chance Friday; 100% on Saturday, 90% Sunday, etc. any more details to this weekend’s weather in Gainesville? Will there be windows of opportunity to play the regional games? Change start times, etc?

    Bogey;

    Last two days in Gainesville has seen allot of rain (and yesterday thunder and lighting), but it has been off and on during the day. There have been 2-3 hour gaps where there are just cloudy skies. The sun is kinda peeking out now and there is some blue sky, but when it rains................. it is coming down.
    My guess would be is this keeps up, we can get the games in, but the schedule is going to be all screwed up.

    The pony tail is what I spotted so I am pretty sure it was you. You seats are certainly at home in "enemy territory".............. Look forward to seeing you this weekend. It will be my wife and my first visit to KSP,

    well ponytails are in short supply at the Mac :)
    Look forward to meeting up at KSP, weather looks iffy right now, do you plan to go to all the games or just the ones with UF?
    I got tix for my HS friend and I for the full shooting match hoping for cloud cover and no rain :)
