UK Softball To Co-Host Bluegrass Classic

The softball team is set to co-host the Bluegrass Classic Tournament this week with the University of Louisville.


Having won 16 of their first 18 games this season, they're currently ranked No. 9 in the latest rankings by the National Fastpitch Coaches' Association, as well as, No. 12 in the USA Softball/ESPN.com poll.


The Cats will play four games over three days, facing Buffalo twice, Valpo and Ohio. The tournament will start Thursday and run through Sunday. They will not be playing on Saturday as Kentucky is expecting weather to effect their field environment, keeping them from having a safe playing experience. So don't show up that day if you plan on watching the tournament in person.


With no games taking place Saturday, fans holding Saturday tickets can now use that ticket for the new game vs. Ohio on Thursday at 2:30 p.m. ET. Fans that purchased tickets for Friday's original game will still be valid. If fans can not make the Thursday game, they may exchange it for another game this season at John Cropp Stadium.


All Kentucky games of the Bluegrass Classic will be shown live on the SEC Network+, ESPN3 and the ESPN app. The weekend will feature commentary from Dave Baker, Carol Bruggeman, Jenny Dalton-Hill and former UK pitcher, Autumn Humes.
