Can't wait! Wish My family lived a little closer so we could come watch them in Fayetteville.

Do you have to pre order softball tickets or are they sold at the ball park?

softball isn't as nearly as well attended as baseball.  If it was baseball you had better plan ahead and purchase ahead, but with softball, except on promotional days (and on that availability I just couldn't say) I doubt you will have any trouble walking up and purchasing general admission tickets.  It will differ from game to game and day to day,  but generally I dont think you will have any trouble that way.  Give it a year or two though and it will be different.

Already some MAJOR drama unfolding in the SEC softball season. Mizzou -- just ~11 days before the season -- fired their coach, Ehren Earleywine. This is a CRAZY thing to do, considering that he had been under investigation for improper conduct just a couple years ago and apparently cleared. Now, though, the new AD basically said, "upon further review, we want to go in a new direction." There are rumors that last year after the SEC Tournament in Knoxville, Coach E and the staff flew home to CoMo on their own and left the team to get home by themselves. I'm not even sure how that's possible, but that's one of the stories going around. Anyway, he's out and they've promoted an Assistant to be Interim for the year. As you might imagine, the players are a little shell-shocked.

Very glad we have a seemingly happy, mature, and stable coaching staff running our program! Eight days till we open the season!

Softball games are FREE. Just walk through the gate and find a seat. Non conference AND conference games.

That was the policy Deifel's first year (to combat an awful year before and the loss of fan support and not much attendance).  I havent heard what the policy will be this year.  It may be the same, but I am confident you wont have any problem getting a general admission ticket.  As the team builds, it wont stay the same.

Yes they are free this year also. I checked during the fall scrimmage games and was told they were free again.

For the first time in a long time I am excited by the prospects for a good season for the softball team.
Psych and I have talked about this a great deal (he is more the resident expert along with LBBF) than I am but I am an active follower.  I am excited for two main reasons - First our pitching portends to be the best and deepest it has perhaps ever been, certainly in a long time.  We are apt to have three quality pitchers this year, though one is a freshman and still unproven.

Secondly, we have the best freshman class in a long time - despite the fact that we return most of our starters in the field and in the batting order - I think three of them will challenge for either starting or extended playing time.

softball season starts a week from today in Hammond, La.

the team will play fourteen games before we see them in Fayetteville on the 28th.

They will be televised four times on ESPNU, and all their SEC games (and home games) will be SEC network for viewing on our internet devices.

their first game against Kennesaw state could be a good one.  They are picked to win their conference and won 40 games last year.  They are a lower classification, but still a good game.

Nichols State is our next two games - they are also a top notch team in their division (Southland Conference).  They finished runup last year but return a lot of their starters including five who are picked as preseason all conference.

From there the hogs play single games against ten different team in either Hammond, La, Palm Springs, and in Madiera Beach, Fla before returning home to play Missouri State.

The Missouri State game begins a six game preconference home stand for the hogs.

thats because the softball team has been traditionally awful. change that, and people will come.

That's great! I felt bad last year, because my wife and I talked about going to a free game and never made it. We will be going this year.
