The Big 12 Softball Championship returns to ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City for the 13th consecutive year.
The championship will be a three-day, single-elimination event with all 10 schools that sponsor softball participating (Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas A&M and Texas Tech) while the winner will earn an automatic bid to the NCAA Division I Softball Championship.
As the first sport contested in league history, softball held the first postseason tournament in 1996. Oklahoma won the inaugural league title, which was the only crown handed out that season. From that year on, both a regular season and postseason champion have been awarded.
Overall, Texas (1999, 2002-03, '05) has won the most tournament championships with four followed by Nebraska (1998, 2000, '04) and defending champion Oklahoma (1996, 2001, ’07), which have three each. Missouri (1997) and Kansas (2006) have claimed top honors once.
In addition to the Big 12 Championships, Hall of Fame Stadium has hosted the Women's College World Series 17 times, including the last 11. A Big 12 squad has advanced 14 times to the Women's College World Series in the last 12 years, including Oklahoma's national championship in 2000.
