Tradition is just fine. Until something better comes along.

Thanks for pointing this out. Very cool.
Good exposure for the school and I'd imagine helpful on the budget. I can't imagine all northern schools have the budget to travel all over the country for a month. Also, if I was in undergrad there, it would be a fun saturday pre-gaming this haha.

Interesting. I've seen scrimmage type games in our indoor football facility, but not fully live with the outfield fences etc. Drake's ace certainly has some good velocity. I guess we'll see her in Auburn next weekend.

Saw it in high school. Outdoor turf field used for SB during the spring.

Depaul had a soccer field they adapted for softball, in season. Do they still do that?

Last year Montana played a series at an indoor football field.

Huskies did a midwest run last winter as part of their tour to let Alvelo and Thomas play in front of home town fans. They played in a dome with an indoor football field. A couple of the players got HRs for bouncing balls off the top of the dome. I remember Alvelo throwing and the pop into the glove echoed off the walls. Made it sound like she was throwing like 200mph or something.
