Similar to the Men’s College World Series, eight teams will compete during the preliminary rounds of the championship, and will play in a double elimination format, with the two bracket survivors meeting in a best-of-three series to determine the NCAA champion. The first game of the Championship Series will be played on Monday, June 4th, 2012. Game Two will be played the following night, Tuesday, June 5th, 2012. Should a third game be necessary to determine a champion, it would be played on Wednesday night, June 6th, 2012. Airtime for all three broadcasts would be 7:45 PM ET.
Kevin Kugler will have the play-by-play of the WCWS for the NCAA Radio Network.
Leah (O’Brien) Amico, a three-time WCWS Champion and three-time Olympic Softball Gold Medalist, will serve as the analyst.
