Text Message Scoring
I am happy to continue a very popular blog feature of last year: scores sent via text message. If you sign up on this blog (to the right), you will be sent text messages of game scores from Game 1 through the Championship game. This is a free service.
Game Video Available
In 2008, LLSBWS staff has worked diligently to provide free video of games not covered by ESPN. You can check the SoftballWorldSeries.com website and watch via computer.
