First things first: If you can make it to Husky Softball Stadium this weekend, where the Seattle Regional of the 2017 NCAA Division I Softball Championship takes place, tickets are on sale through the Washington ticket office. Tickets are $36 for an all-tournament pass, $15 for single-day access.
Since the regional is a double-elimination format, Montana, which opens with No. 6 Washington on Friday at 9:30 p.m. (MT), is assured of playing multiple days. The Grizzlies will face either Michigan or Fresno State at 3 or 5:30 p.m. (MT) on Saturday. A complete regional schedule can be found below.
All ticket information can be found here.
Adding to the coverage options will be the agreement struck on Tuesday that all of Montana’s tournament games will air on KMPT 930 AM in the Missoula area, with Riley Corcoran calling the action. Fans outside of listening range who want to tune in can access the broadcast at 930kmpt.com.
For those who have access, Montana’s tournament opener will be streamed on ESPN3, with Beth Mowins doing play-by-play and Michele Smith, a two-time all-American at Oklahoma State and 1996 and 2000 Olympic gold medalist, serving as analyst.
ESPN, on one of its outlets, will carry every game from the Seattle Regional. The game at 7 p.m. (MT) on Friday between Michigan and Fresno State will air in regional markets on ESPN2.
Broadcast information for Saturday’s and Sunday’s games in Seattle will be announced later in the week.
