STANFORD, Calif. – Stanford softball will appear on television 15 times during the 2014 season, including 10 broadcasts on the Pac-12 Network and five on the ESPN family of networks, as announced Wednesday by the Pac-12 conference.
The Cardinal will make its 2014 television debut on Sunday, March 15 when both games of its doubleheader against Cal will be broadcast on the Pac-12 Network.
Seven of Stanford’s eight Pac-12 series will feature at least one televised game. Along with the Cal series, the Cardinal’s television schedule is highlighted by broadcasts against Arizona State (twice), Washington (twice), Utah (twice), Oregon (once), UCLA (three times) and Oregon State (three times).
Stanford will play some of the nation’s best this spring, including 33 games against 17 teams that participated in 2013 NCAA Regional competition. The Cardinal will play a challenging nonconference schedule, highlighted by a Feb. 23 matchup against 2013 NCAA runner-up Tennessee at the Mary Nutter Classic in Cathedral City, Calif., before embarking on another tough Pac-12 schedule that includes seven NCAA Tournament teams from last season.
The Cardinal finished the 2013 season 39-21 and ranked No. 21/22 in the nation. Stanford finished fourth in the Pac-12 with a 13-11 mark, and was 26-10 against non-conference opponents. The Cardinal was 20-6 at Boyd and Jill Smith Family Stadium.
