2018 Women’s College World Series of NCAA Division I Softball TV and Announcer Schedule

Every game from the 2018 Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City will be televised by ESPN, the company’s 19th 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, May 31, 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 4, and concludes either Tuesday, June 5, or Wednesday, June 6, with the crowning of this season’s national champion.

For the third time since the tournament added an extra round in 2005, the World Series features the top eight seeds of the original field. Half of the remaining teams in the Women’s College World Series come from the Pac-12 conference. And, the Oklahoma Sooners are in pursuit of a three-peat championship.

The following are the scheduled game start times (all times Eastern; start times subject to change) and respective networks:

  1. Definitely gonna be watching WCWS for sure!

    My only thing is sometimes the same teams get to the dance all the time there was some teams I watched in the past couple of weeks that I would’ve preferred seeing instead.
