Softball Weekend Central
March 2, 2018


As the calendar turns to the month of March, Big Ten Conference softball programs continue their non-conference schedules, competing at a variety of tournaments around the country. Many of these tournaments will be televised on the WatchESPN platform or FloSoftball — be sure to check each media outlet's web site for the latest broadcast schedule. In addition, weather and travel delays, as well as other factors, can affect game dates, times, matchups and television coverage — each school's official athletics web site and/or its social media channels will have all the latest information.
