Alabama Softball to Compete in Crimson Classic
Alabama softball Team 26 will take their undefeated record into Rhoads Stadium this weekend for the T-Mobile Crimson Classic.
After going 5-0 in the Mardi Gras Mambo last weekend and shutting out UAB in Tuscaloosa on Wednesday, No. 2 Alabama looks to stay undefeated in its upcoming weekend series against Texas and Miami (OH). The Crimson Tide will play both teams twice, starting with the Longhorns Friday evening and Saturday afternoon, then the RedHawks on Saturday evening as part of a double header and early Sunday afternoon.
Alabama has gone 22-2 in the last five Crimson Classics that have been held, with the only losses coming in the 2020 COVID-shortened season. The Tide has an impressive home record of 609-99 since Rhoads Stadium became its home field in 2000, and has not lost a home game since April 17 of last year, its last loss before the Women's College World Series.
Alabama's 16-0 record speaks for the all-around dominance put on the field. The pitching rotation has nine shutouts under its belt. The bats have been nothing but hot as well, having seven of the nine shutout wins came via run-rule.
The team's record includes 5 wins against ranked opponents, outscoring them 31-1, and the classic will be the first weekend this season that the Tide will not play against a ranked opponent.
Alabama Softball will kickoff their weekend slate off against Texas on Friday, March 4 at 6 p.m. CST.
