    The 9am loser turns around and plays at 1pm today. With the losers from yesterday playing at 11am, they then have to turn around and play at 1pm. It gives the first round winner a break when they lose in round 2 whereas the loser in round 1 has to play a doubleheader if they win in the first round of the loser's bracket.

    Asking a team to potentially play 4 games in 1 day is a lot to ask. And then play again at 9 am on Saturday.

    I believe this is the last year for this format, which is a good thing. The girls deserve to be playing on an actual softball field in an actual stadium just like the boys.

    Did they start late, or have they been sitting in a long heat delay? I know these were the 11:00 games today (or at least the Ryle game is).

    Why are there such strict rules on videoing the softball tournament?

    It's LIVE video streaming. There is NO rights for it, same thing for baseball. ONLY NFHS partner (PrepSpin) can do live video streaming.

    The KHSAA DOES offer a pay stream for all baseball and softball final four.

    Audio is fine (radio or webstream) and has been for a while.

    I do NOT see a problem drawing the line at live video.

    My understanding is that they’re still playing and it’s almost midnight. That’s just ridiculous as the winner has to come back tomorrow morning at 10.
