Sunday Open Thread: Softball and Baseball

Michelle Lepianka Carter / Tuscaloosa News

Softball is still on for a noon start against Hawaii.  This is winner take all for a trip to the WCWS, so let's hope Game Three resembles Game One and collectively forget Game Two, otherwise this fantastic season is over.  ESPN will televise the game, while rolltide.com has your live blog and gametracker hook ups and Tommy Deas keeps the twitter updates coming.

UPDATE: A two run homer in the bottom of the 7th sends Hawaii to the WCWS and ends the Tide's season. Its a heartbreaker for sure, but if there's any cold comfort to be had it's that we won the SEC regular season and tournament titles and have a lot of players returning next year to build on. Still, hard way to end, especially for the seniors.

Meanwhile, the tarp is coming off the field at Regions Park and the 1pm start time is, at least for now, still on.  Amusingly, the Tide and LSU were the last two teams in and yet both ran the table to reach the championship game undefeated.  I'm not 100% positive, but I think there's a "college football doesn't need a playoff" lesson in there somewhere.  Anyway, ESPN2 has the TV, ESPN3.com has the internet feed, and the SEC Tournament Central page has you covered with the live stats and such.  Roll Tide.
