Is there any way to purchase broadcasts of regional games that ESPN had?  I wasn't able to make all of the regional I was watching.  In the past, ESPN has sometimes put WCWS games on DVD for people to buy.

Anyone else having trouble getting the UCLA-Miss game on the ESPN app? It was previously in the Upcoming tab but now it's neither there, nor available live. Ticker on the Bama game says it's available on the app. Eh?

Thanks for this, Terrell.

Figured I'd quote to put the schedule on the second page with the big full day of action today, and to bump the thread for those looking for the when/where/TV/etc.

how does ESPN selected announcers for the regional's ?  Do they listen to them ....great softball players do not make great speaking voices.

Silence would be better with a few

ESPN Presents the Women’s College World Series from Oklahoma City

[image]

By      

Posted on May 31, 2017

  • Top-Ranked Florida, Defending Champion Oklahoma Sooners Headline Eight-Team Field
  • Two Commentators Teams: Veterans Jessica Mendoza, Michele Smith, Beth Mowins, and Holly Rowe; Amanda Scarborough, Adam Amin and Laura Rutledge
  • Concludes ESPN’s Presentation of NCAA Division I Softball Championship, First Time Producing Every Game of Every Round

Every game from the 2017 Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City will be televised by ESPN, the company’s 18th year airing every pitch of the culmination of the NCAA Division I Softball Championship. College softball’s week-long, up to 17-game season finale from OGE Energy Field at the ASA Hall of Fame Stadium begins Thursday, June 1, with a four-day, eight-team round-robin, concluding with two teams advancing to the WCWS Finals. The best-of-three WCWS Finals begins Monday, June 5, and concludes either Tuesday, June 6, or Wednesday, June 7, with the crowning of this season’s national champion.

The 2017 WCWS completes the first ever NCAA Division I Softball Championship entirely produced by ESPN, with the network producing at least 135 games over the course of the regionals, Super Regionals and WCWS.

Top-Ranked Florida, Defending Champion Oklahoma Sooners Headline Eight-Team Field
All eight teams that advanced to Oklahoma City are nationally seeded, led by No. 1 Florida who were the top-ranked team heading into the Championship for the third consecutive year. The defending national champion Oklahoma Sooners return to the WCWS, this year seeded 10th in the tournament.  Joining Florida and Oklahoma is No. 3 Oregon, No. 5 UCLA, No. 6 Washington, No. 9 Texas A&M, No. 13 LSU, and No. 15 Baylor.

The Gators will open the tournament, taking on No. 9 Texas A&M (noon ET), followed by No. 13 LSU vs. No. 5 UCLA (2:30 p.m.)  with both games airing on ESPN. In the evening, No. 6 Washington takes on No. 3 Oregon (7 p.m.) and No. 15 Baylor plays No. 10 Oklahoma (9:30 p.m.) with both games airing on ESPN2. Play continues on Friday, June 2, (7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.) and Saturday, June 3, (noon, 2:30 p.m., 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.) with all games scheduled to air on ESPN. Sunday, June 4, will feature a minimum of two games, both airing on ESPN (1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.) and two if necessary games (7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.) which will be televised on ESPN2 if played.

The Women’s College World Series Championship Series Game 1 will be Monday June 5, (7 p.m.) and Game 2 will be Tuesday, June 6, (8 p.m.). If necessary, a decisive Game 3 will air Wednesday, June 7, at 8 p.m.  All three games are scheduled to air on ESPN.

A complete WCWS bracket can be found here.

ESPN’s Presentation of the Women’s College World Series
ESPN will utilize two commentating teams during the round-robin portion of the tournament, with WCWS veterans Jessica Mendoza (analyst), Michele Smith (analyst), Beth Mowins (play-by-play) and Holly Rowe (reporter) calling the majority of the prime-time games. The 2017 WCWS will be Mowins’ 23nd as a commentator, Smith’s 15th and Mendoza’s 12th as an analyst and Rowe’s 13th as a reporter. The entire group will work the best-of-three Championship Series.

Returning for their third consecutive year, Adam Amin (play-by-play), Amanda Scarborough (analyst) and Laura Rutledge (reporter) will call the first games scheduled during the four day round-robin.

The non prime time games have the better announcers. But really glad Holly is able to be there again. She's clearly a fan of the game. A wcws without her would just seem weird. I hope she kicks cancer in the ass again.

Amanda Scarborough was a fine pitcher & a pretty good announcer. She's easy to listen to alright but, she's a bufoon at calling pitches...after the fact. A screwball is a backdoor curve, an offspeed curve or straight change has got to be called something exotic, crap you never hear. Garcia just struck out Landry on a straight screwball away, belt high and she called it sliding down into the zone and away blah, blah blah. One thing for certain she can't tell squat from looking straight down, I know she's got our view so you'd think she'd use it.

And talking about Walljaspar, saying she goes off speed or down when she's ahead. EVERYBODY in the country knows everything she throws is off speed...or down...called gravity. She throws about 59 tops. 

She's like the John Gruden of Softball. Loves everybody.
