    THE FIRST PITCH• The program opens the 2018 season at the USF Opening Weekend Invitational in Tampa, Fla. It is the sixth consecutive season that the Gators will have opened the season in a tournament hosted by the Bulls. Over that span Florida holds a 24-0 record in the tournaments hosted by USF.

    • The University of Florida softball program enters the 2018 season ranked inside the top five of the USA Today/NFCA Coaches' Poll & ESPN.com/USA Softball for the sixth consecutive season.

    • For the sixth consecutive season the Gators were picked by the league's head coaches to win the SEC title. The league office announced the poll results Tuesday, Jan. 15. The team picked up 10 of the 13 available first place votes for a total of 142 points.

    • This weekend will mark the sixth consecutive year that Florida will meet Michigan and Illinois State during opening weekend. The Gators have bested the Wolverines the past five meetings in Tampa: 9-4 (8 innings) Feb. 8, 2014; 2-1 Feb. 7, 2015; 8-0 (5 innings) Feb. 13, 2016; 2-1 (10 innings) Feb. 11, 2017 & 2-0 Feb. 10, 2018.

    • Last season the Gators had three student-athletes named NFCA All-Americans in Kelly Barnhill, Amanda Lorenz and Nicole DeWitt. Both Barnhill and Lorenz return for their senior campaigns and the Gators added a third All-American to the roster this fall in Minnesota transfer Kendyl Lindaman.

    • Barnhill, Lorenz and Lindaman landed on the Top 50 "Watch List" for the 2018 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year award. In 2017, Barnhill became only the second sophomore ever (Cat Osterman, 2003) and second Gator (Lauren Haeger, 2015) ever to win the coveted award. Barnhill and Lorenz finished their 2018 campaign as Top 4 finalists for the award, while Lindaman was on the Top 50 "Watch List".

    • The UF roster includes eight incoming freshmen, including one early enrollee, and two transfer juniors - Jade Caraway (JR - OF - N.C. State), Kendly Lindaman (JR - C - Minnesota), Cheyenne Lindsey (FR - UT), Brittany Allen (FR - INF), Hannah Sipos (FR - INF), Odalys Cordova (FR - INF), Elizabeth Hightower (FR - RHP), Danni Farley (FR - RHP), Bryn Thomas (FR - UT - Early Enrollee)

    For the sixth consecutive season the Gators were picked by the league's head coaches to win the SEC title. The league office announced the poll results Tuesday, Jan. 15. The team picked up 10 of the 13 available first place votes for a total of 142 point

    ESPN+ will not be showing any games today, I think some of the games are on pay per view by the South Florida Bulls Network. They have been in the past, but I have not checked for tournament

    I hope at least there will be highlights shown on the SEC Network. I wonder if there is anyone posting something like this too on You Tube, like we have in football?
