UL softball fans will have the opportunity to watch Ragin' Cajun games at next week's Sun Belt Conference Softball Championships on the league's free online webcast.
The tournament is Wednesday-Saturday in Troy, Ala., and all games except for the championship game will be available on live streaming video on the Sun Belt's www.sunbeltsports.org website. The championship game will air on the Sun Belt Network, locally on Cox Sports Television (CST) at 3 p.m. Saturday, May 11.
Fans wishing to watch the action may go to the web site, click on "Championships" and then on "Softball," and a list of all tournament games will be shown. The "Video" tab on each game will link to the live broadcast.
Games are scheduled at 10 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, while Saturday could include one or two morning games prior to the championship game depending on results of bracketed double-elimination play. If the Saturday morning games are required, those broadcasts will also be available online.
The bracket will be announced Sunday night following completion of the final weekend of regular-season play Sunday. Troy University, as host team, will have the option of choosing its playing time on the first day.
The live online broadcasts are free and no advance signup is required. More information on the tournament will be available beginning Monday at www.sunbeltsports.org.
