Alabama softball hosting NCAA Regional this weekend

By WVUA 23 Sports Reporter Alex Boothe

Alabama softball will host their Tuscaloosa Regional this weekend with UT-Chattanooga, Murray State, and Stanford. Alabama earned the sixth seed overall after recording a 41-11 overall record in the regular season. The Crimson Tide will play Chattanooga in its opening game Friday at 3 p.m. on SEC Network to begin the regional. The regional will begin Friday night and run through Sunday afternoon at Rhoads Stadium in Tuscaloosa.

Coach Patrick Murphy had a few words to say after the NCAA selection show on Sunday.

“I know that they are excited. I mean, anytime you can get a top eight seed, that’s a huge win. So, now we have four days of practice to get ready. The benefit of hosting obviously, they get to sleep in their own bed, we don’t have to travel, we get our fans here, and you know, the best fans in college softball are going to go to town, but it’s definitely a home field advantage.”
