2019 Women’s College World Series of NCAA Division I Softball TV and Announcer Schedule

Every game from the 2019 Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City will be televised by ESPN, the company’s 19th consecutive year airing every pitch of the culmination of the NCAA Division I Softball Championship.

The action begins Thursday, May 30, from USA Softball Hall of Fame Stadium – OGE Energy Field in Oklahoma City with a four-day, eight-team, double-elimination round robin, advancing two teams to the WCWS Finals.

The best-of-three championship series begins Monday, June 3, and concludes with the crowning of the national champion on Tuesday, June 4, or Wednesday, June 5. Games will be available on ESPN or ESPN2, along with every game available on the ESPN App.

  1. Thanks, Douglas for the schedule one of my favorite sporting events of the year. Will be watching this afternoon before the NBA Finals.

  2. I enjoy watching the women’s college world series every year. But was disappointed by the actions of Oklahoma State player Samantha Show. After hitting her second home run of the game against Florida, she threw her bat end over end for several feet towards her dugout. This showed a not only a lack of sportsmanship, but also could have injured the on-deck batter and possibly someone in the dugout it got that far. She should have been thrown out of the game. Not sure why she wasn’t. It was a dangerous action. Is this what we want our young women softball players exposed to? If they were watching, it could happens as soon as this weekend. More stringent rules need to be enforced for this kind of a ridiculous action.

    • It seems like the announcers are pulling for one team over the others they made Florida feel like they had no chance and the girls hear the replays and how they talk better about Show than they do theFlorida even before the game gets going.Jyst because you played for the other team doesn’t mean you should talk about it all the time.This is such a biased group of announcers.I pray that we can move away from Oklahoma City and all the West Coast favorites being aired for the other teams to be made to feel like they don’t really count for being there….trust me I’m not the only one who thinks this or hears it.
