Here's the official release from Hokie Sports with ticket info.

If Virginia Tech wins its regional, it will host the winner of the Gainesville Regional in the Blacksburg Super Regional.

Go Hokies!

Should be St Francis PA 2pm ACCN Friday first game. Also my ESPN app says Charlottesville Regional. LAME. ESPN fix your incompetence. LETS GO!

Let’s go……

Miami OH Head coach is a former hokie

Here they come
Here comes the bastards
I heard it from a confidant
Who heard it from a confidant
They're definitely on their way

Then let's hope they beat Kentucky on Friday and lose to us on Saturday 😎

I don't know what a Hokie is, but God is one of them!

Haye how that they have faced Kentucky and Miami already this season. They have to take this one game one pitch at a time.

Didn't realize Clemson is in its second year and already been to two NCAA tournaments and is now even hosting one. Their facilities look great also. Time for Whit to dump some money into upgrades for Softball.

We are 3rd in the nation in softball. Facilities are clearly holding us back.

Just like wrestling there is a huge gap between perennial powerhouses like Oklahoma in softball and everyone else. This is the time to invest when the team is near the top not keep saying "well this is good enough". That's what happened in football after a NC game and not hiring a full support staff, Investing upgrades round the facilities and not engaging fans to donate more. But I know in your mind it's never about facilities or support staff.

Are we 3rd in the nation because we have an ace pitcher and a damn good backup? which is 90% of the womens game? I think so. We can beat Oklahoma if our ace does what she does. That's how womens softball works. And there is a difference between me not being "for facilities and support" and our fans shit talking our very good facilities because its the hot topic.

"Hot topic" reality of college sports, especially one that still relies on volunteers to be assistant coaches.

I don't think a comparison to wrestling is fair. VT has never had a legitimate chance at a team national title. The ceiling for VT wrestling is a 4th place finish. VT softball has a legitimate chance at a national championship THIS year.

This is why investment when the team is on top is important. Because the team without good to great players in the ring and at bat can go cold at the worst time.

Clemson also has a Title IX problem (they only sponsor 14 sports), so they have to heavily invest in select women's sports.

We put the K in Kwality

I planned a birthday surprise trip for my wife to see Regionals. I knew tickets would be tough, but after talking to the ticket office they might go quickly. Due to being laid off last year, I didn't have a 2022 donation and so I can't purchase until the last time slot. I have no idea if this is weird to ask. Mods - delete if it is. I just figured it was worth asking so the birthday trip isn't ruined.

Is there any Hokie club member who isn't planning to buy tickets that would be willing to purchase for me? I am happy to provide payment before purchase.

are you looking for the reserved seats for the entire block of games? Or just a single game.
Please answer quickly because my time slot is in 7 minutes

Thank you! TKP is the best and the birthday trip will be a success!

So glad we were able to connect and get you tickets! Best wishes

I picked up 2 passes for DCIMSA and myself. We won't make it to the games on Friday, but we can at least make it for Saturday! Go Lady Hokies!!

What's the word on how to watch our game(s)? I see the FSU regional game on ESPN+ but not ours?

Thanks Frank!

ACC network. 2pm. Game one at least. Believe all of them will be broadcast over ESPN to some extent e.g. cable or streaming.

Let’s go……

Thanks. I spent probably 15 minutes searching various websites and was unable to figure out how to watch it. Ridiculous.

Is there a game thread forthcoming?

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Saw a VT Athletics post a video on The Devil's Playground (Facebook) of quite a long line to get into Tech Softball Park! Go Hokies!
