Softball πŸ₯Ž Blacksburg Regional

Your hokie ladies softball is the #3 national seed and is in a tough bracket with Kentucky, Miami (OH), and St Francis (PA).

Game one Friday May 20thβ€”if we win we will play again Saturday May 21st in the winners bracket game at 3. A win there will place us into Sunday. A loss means another game Saturday evening and a must win situation to advance to championship Sunday. An ideal path is win Friday, win Saturday and avoid a late night game with a quick turnaround into a noon Sunday championship. This is the first time your ladies softball is hosting a regional in the Burg.

Let's go!

LETS GO

Vroom Vroom

HOKIES!

My wife takes the kids and leaves the house while I watch my Hokie games.........nuff said

Game one is live NOW ACCN.

Let’s go……

Keeping an eye on the box score...

3 batters, 3 strikeouts in the 1st. Nice start for Keely

Especially watch the pitch count. If KR keeps that down, should be a better weekend for her arm.

Let’s go……

KR looks like she is back on top of her game. Sold out extra bleachers and all!

Even when you get skunked; fishing never lets you down. 🎣

5 batters, 5 struck out swinging let's go

make that 6 for 6!

Looks like Rochard is

Oh wow...

Man not sure about that baserunning, would have had first and third with one out. Need to plate these baserunners

VB born, class of '14

Whovever sent Peck should be shot!

Even when you get skunked; fishing never lets you down. 🎣

8 Ks for Keely through 3

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

Have to get the bats going.

Let’s go……

Not a hit, but an rbi walk!

VB born, class of '14

Bases loaded, one out. One run is better than none, but that was rough.

If the ladies don't find some bats they're not going very far!

Even when you get skunked; fishing never lets you down. 🎣

Keely Rochard may disagree with you, at least today

VB born, class of '14

15 Ks through 6

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

Bottom of 6. Don't anyone say it! You know what I'm talking about!

Even when you get skunked; fishing never lets you down. 🎣

I feel for the SFU pitcher right now...the strike zone is very small.

Turns out it's true for both pitchers...SFU has just been swinging a lot

(add if applicable) /s

Wtf is our base running?? Seems like you'd take 2 outs and first and 3rd there

(add if applicable) /s

Seriously that's twice today. Needs to tighten up or else will get us eliminated

VB born, class of '14

The announcer just jinxed Rochard!

I sure hope Rochard is impervious to jinxing.

thank you kindly, sir.

Still would like to see the offense pick things up a bit. I'd hate to see this tremendously good season fizzle out early.

No hitter! Ladies win 4-0 πŸ¦ƒπŸ₯Ž

Game tomorrow at 3pm against the winner of Miami OH and Kentucky

VB born, class of '14

4-0 Hokies win. No Hitter!!!

β€œThe Cup is Going Nowhere Mikey!!!!!”
β€œThis is my School. This is Home.”

No hitter by Keely to start the regional

Jinx the shit out of the perfect game but still throws a no hitter.

Don't say it
Don't euphemism it

Keely was lit today but the bats gotta get going for tomorrow.
End of 4 Kentucky up 15-1 over Miami OH

Didn't see the game between Miami (OH) and Kentucky, but based on that score, Kentucky really came to play the upset game.

Go Hokies!

BB and SB going on at same time on campus! SB is on ESPN @ 3, BB ACCN @2.

Baseball is on ACCNX just so if people are looking for it don't go to ACCN and be like where's the baseball game πŸ˜‚

Unless they were going to move the baseball game to the AM, there was no way around it. There are 3 softball games to be played today. The winners get the benefit of playing early, and a little extra rest vs yesterday's losers.

Move baseball to noon or one. But with weather delay who knows what happens.

You can't change softball and I'm sure they didn't want to push back baseball because it's travel day.

It's Time to go to Work

Someone do a bat rain dance with me before this SB game. Gonna need them to rain it down on UK.

Let’s go……

Duke / Liberty SB.. Olive Oil vrs Olive Oil. Man they are tall.

Based on the radar you're looking at a start time past 5pm if it holds. Storm looks pretty bad.

Looks like some bad stuff headed to Bburg

It's been more bark than bite. The section that is headed to Blacksburg passed over us earlier. Didn't really do anything. The second wave is just lightly raining now.

Now I can't find the SB game scheduled anywhere.

Game has supposedly been moved to SEC network of all places for a Blacksburg hosted regional. Truly disrespectful.

They aren't going to move scheduled programming that's on now, wince there was a rain delay. Sorry HF but espn isn't malicious all the time, this is just an unfortunate instance

Ice cold bats might be our demise. We all knew there was no way we could repeat what happened last year and make a run.

Review is going to have Slaw out there... Very disappointing outcome as the #3 overall seed. But again, we've been ice cold for 3+ weeks now, so I think it's been in the back of all our minds.

Man, I was hoping to come on here and read about how we came back to win and what I just turned on was not live. Bats need to start doing some damage. Seems like the coaches are trying to reserve Rochard for tomorrow, if they get there.

I am not sure what to do with my hands now

This was a dumb move. You have to win this game. Put in KR or EL. CPD has some serious faith that our bats are going to come alive magically. Questionable call but let's see what happens.

EDIT TWO RUN BLAST 4-3 Miami OH. Some life now. Come on girls.

Let’s go……

You have to bring Rochard in next inning, great plays by 3B but they were hit hard.

Idk much about softball but how good/bad is our coaching staff? Asking for a friend...

How do tickets work for tomorrow? If you buy tickets to the noon game, do you get to stay for the next one if we win? Or would a potential "game 3" be separate?

Rain delays always sucked. I'm sure they both want to get out and play. All you can do is keep lose and if power naps are your game even better.

LOL your "jinx" appears to be simply starting or stopping the game at 4-1. Watching a game through shouldn't objectively matter even by those superstitious standards.

Even not watching the last game meant they won? Do we have a jinx ruling judge in the house?

Another one 0-2. I'm not getting the decision to start Lemley.

Even when you get skunked; fishing never lets you down. 🎣

Don't really get why you have your season on the line for 3 straight games and you don't start your best pitcher, who's also one of the best in the country. Unless there's some sort of injury, feels like a slap to Rochard

If you can't handle my shit posts, you don't deserve my memes

Id imagine he's hoping to get enough from lemley so Rochard can close the second half today

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

And now shes racking up the illegal pitches and coach gets thrown in the second. Completely preventable...

If you can't handle my shit posts, you don't deserve my memes

dont like how this 2nd inning is going... this is the same shit that cost the team the FSU game earlier in the year. Not sure complaining about it and getting tossed is the right move here since everyone knows she has a tendency to do this.

That's not the point. The point is Kentucky is doing it as well and they ain't calling shit

Lemley has plenty left in the tank, and she hasn't slowed up yet.

I'm assuming after Lemley goes through the order once Rochard will come in. Hopefully a 3/4 innings split if all goes well

VB born, class of '14

She's starting to lose something now. Hopefully she makes it through 3 with minimal damage.

Time to respond in the bottom half of the inning

VB born, class of '14

Absolutely. I really hope Keeley's ready to go.

Side note... WTAF is the ACCN doing?? Regional championship on and they are airing some ACC track and field thing documentary thing? SMH

EDIT: Not to mention, the SEC, BIG and PAC all have half a dozen or more channels airing things and the ACC has a single channel...

Is coronavirus over yet?

Bats are getting plenty of contact, need to start hitting the gaps.

Why the hell did they change the offensive gameplan in between games? The reason they kicked Kentucky's ass in the first game is because of them being patience and not swinging terrible pitches. They gonna back to yesterday offense πŸ™„

Good reminder that winning your regional is hard, no matter who you are (except for Oklahoma I guess...)

People were down after the L yesterday for good reason, but this team is HOSTING a super regional y'all

I'd be happy as hell just to win the super regional. They win a natty, they deserve a monument of some sort.

Well, there is a trophy case available.

Late on here tonight, but what a 24 hours. Feels much like that ACCT emotional roller coaster. I was very doubtful after last night, but this team just did what champions do. If we can make it past UF, the road to a national championship is very attainable with losses this weekend by ranked teams. Really exciting 2022 for VT sports thus far. Way to go ladies!! Big week ahead on the diamonds.

Let’s go……

It is insane what oklahoma did in their regional. outscored opponents 37-2 in 3 games and won the regional today 20-0.

Danny is always open

And as a side note on Ok. That was their 36th mercy rule win of the season. That's brutal! WTH bring them on!

Even when you get skunked; fishing never lets you down. 🎣

The season stats for Oklahoma are bonkers.

OU is #1 in Scoring with 480 runs in 53 games. #2 is Wichita St that has scored 415 runs in 52 games. A 65 run differential between 1st and 2nd! OU is the only team scoring over 9.0 Runs Per Game. No other team has 8.0.

#1 in Batting Average, #1 in Home Runs, #1 in ERA

They also only have gone up against 2 pitching staffs in the top 50 of the NCAA per ERA, granted they are 2-0 with one of those being on the road. Against those staffs, the Sooners scored 12 runs. (6 runs per game)

We've gone up against 14 opponents with combined ERAs in the top 50 of the NCAA and the only one "at home" was against St. Francis in the Regionals. We're 10-4 against Top 50 ERA staffs. Against those staffs, the Hokies scored 71 runs (5.07 runs per game)

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

Additionally, their pitchers have gone up against 14 opponents in the top 50 in scoring, going 12-2, with both losses coming away from Norman. Admittedly, Sooner pitchers gave up just shy of 2 runs per game against those better hitting teams.

The Hokies pitchers have gone up against 16 opponents in the top 50 in scoring, going 12-4, with the only "home" loss being in the Regional vs Kentucky. Against top 50 batters, the Hokies allowed 3.69 runs per game.

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

I would love to meet up with OU in the championship. Though we may set a record for coaches thrown out due to bullshit illegal pitches if we do.

The Sooners will be facing the first team they've played all year who is in the top 25 in both ERA and runs scored.

Virginia Tech has played 6, going 4-2, with all of those games on the road.

Stretch that out to top 50 and the numbers are still 0-0 for OU, but 5-2 for the Hokies, none of which were in Blacksburg.

Sidenote: The Sooners will be playing UCF in Norman who are 23rd in both ERA and Scoring. The Hokies played UCF earlier this year in Orlando, going 2-1, winning 1-0, 7-0, and losing 4-5.

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

This is a sore loser take, but I wish the WCWS wasn't in Oklahoma City. That's such a home field advantage for the Sooners. Tradition be damned!

Go Hokies!

Yall I'm still pumped that we came back, won 3 games in 24 ish hours, and will hosting a super regional! What a performance by the team, and fans for showing out too

There's just something uncomfortable about making boner jokes in regard to a bunch of 18-22 year old girls...

I haven't moved my neck back into place since our outfielder robbed a homer yesterday. I been screaming so much my neck is a solid 30* back. I should have put the baby down during the game, but she likes being held, and I'll spoil her cause she's the last one.

Where the hell did you get boners from?

Someone needs to attend the Super Regionals wearing welders masks, gloves, and aprons. There's going to be some heat thrown.

Is the website broken for anyone else trying to buy tickets? Every time I try, I get a timeout error.

Tickets already gone? Damn I clicked the link the second I got the chance...

Willing to pay if anyone bought some extras πŸ™ƒ

I think the website is down. I would try to call before assuming they sold out already. I can't even sign on to my account without the site timing out on me. Unless IT at work has finally started blocking hokie sports, which I highly doubt.

Even when i got through and clicked to buy it said there were no tickets lieft for this event or something. Maybe i could have called but i think the general public was just screwed and had no chance

It's sold out.

Concerned this means either secondary market bots or UF fans.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

I get the feeling a lot is being flipped for profit. Disappointed if it is. Hopefully we can get TSP packed.

Let’s go……

It'll be packed. But I'm definitely assuming that a large % of the donors & priority folk went ahead and bought 4 whether they will use them or sell them

It's Tech's first time hosting a Super Regional. They have to have some allotment for Florida, not sure what the percentage is. Then family gets first go and then some combination of high level Hokie club donors and direct softball donors. There aren't that many seats to begin with so no surprise they went fast.

It's Time to go to Work

True but I was hours and hours (days?) late for the regionals and still got a ticket. I was <1 minute late this time and couldn't get one. Doesn't seem quite right to give the general public, students, etc. no chance. But I guess that's how it goes...

This is awesome.

After seeing the great turnout this weekend; I hope we can add more bleachers (if possible)

Just do a quick turnaround of Worsham Field at Lane Stadium and pack that joker out!!

Is coronavirus over yet?

200 feet is 67 yards. If Worsham Field is that wide, put the 3rd base line in the north end zone. UF will never know what hit 'em!

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

NCAA website says a college football field is 160 feet wide, it would be close.

Did a quick overlay from Google Earth and the left field fence lands about row M on the East stands. Add a green monster for the super regional?

I am not sure what to do with my hands now

Could we shave the corners off and run an Over The Line setup?

Ring Design Chair

I used google earth measure distance and got 203ft at the narrowest looking point near NEZ....we just wouldn't have any room for the catcher or umpire but we can make it work.

(add if applicable) /s
