Typically, that is not a recipe for hosting a regional. However, Alabama softball has a way of flipping a switch and making postseason runs. Alabama got the benefit of the doubt, with the Crimson Tide set to host its 20th straight regional.

Patrick Murphy continues an incredible run with Alabama softball. Alabama has made the NCAA Tournament every season since 1999, Murphy's first season as the TIde's head coach.

The regionals have been kind to Alabama when they do host. The Crimson Tide boasts a strong 68-12 record when hosting a regional, and they have advanced to the Super Regional in 17 out of the 18 opportunities since the format was introduced in 2005.

Alabama will be joined by Clemson, Southeastern Louisiana, and USC Upstate in the Tuscalosoa Regional.

Overall, 13 SEC Teams made the NCAA Softball tournament. The two incoming SEC members, Texas and Oklahoma, were the top two overall seeds in the NCAA Softball Tournament. The SEC will continue to get tougher as a conference.

Clemson and Southeastern Louisiana will face off on Friday, May 17 at 11:00 p.m. CT. Alabama and USC Upstate will line up at 3:30 p.m. CT. You can listen to all Alabama Softball games on MeTV FM 97.5 and the free 97.5 App.
