Live Audio Available For Every IU Softball Game During the 2011 Season
Feb. 6, 2011
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana Softball fans will be able to follow the 2011 team like never before as each game will be broadcast live on IUHoosiers.com with Dave Leno doing play-by-play and assistant media relations director Nathan Wiechers providing color analysis.
The 2010 season marked the first season with any form of audio broadcast as nearly 35 games were carried on IUHoosiers.com. In 2011 that coverage will be expanded to include each and every game that Hoosiers play - no matter where they are playing.
"There are very few softball programs across the country that can say that every single game will be broadcast on the internet and we are very proud to be one of those," Indiana head coach Michelle Gardner said. "We started with a partial broadcast schedule last year but bumped it up to the whole schedule this year and I am really excited about the exposure that this gives our team and program."
The team opens the 2011 season on Thursday, Feb. 10, at the Kajikawa Classic in Tempe, Ariz., and play a total of five games over four days in Arizona - all of which can be heard via the All-Access player at IUHoosiers.com. Those that wish to listen will need to purchase the monthly access pass a monthly fee in order to access these broadcasts and all broadcasts through the March 15 doubleheader.
One the team returns to Bloomington to host the Hoosier Classic on March 18, fans will be able to listen to games free of charge through Stretch Internet just as they did to select games in 2010.
