TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – The University of Alabama is hosting the NCAA Softball Tuscaloosa Regional May 19-21. Joining the No. 16 nationally seeded Crimson Tide are Minnesota, Louisiana Tech and Albany.

All four teams will participate in a practice and media day on Thursday, May 18 at Rhoads Stadium.

Roots Woodruff of the Alabama Athletics Communications Office will serve as the regional’s media coordinator. Please direct all credential and parking requests along with general regional questions to him ( | 205.394.2758). All credential requests are due Wednesday, May 17 by the end of the day.

Nathan Sheehan ( will field any and all media requests for the Alabama Softball team.

Regular season media credentials are NOT good for regional competition. Each outlet will have to make a request with their credential needs prior to the Wednesday. Regular-season softball parking IS good for the regional. If you did not have a regular-season parking, please make a request for parking along with your credential request.

The ESPN family of networks (including the SEC Network) will broadcast all the regional games from Tuscaloosa, which means video of the games will have to be obtained via the ESPN feed. Video outlets will be able to shoot their own practice and press conference footage.
