We typically only have open threads when there's TV or radio coverage of a game. Talking about a game just via gametracker can be a bit frustrating. But on rare occasions, exceptions must be made. Cal softball is playing their biggest series of the year so it's time to nervously refresh the twitterz as the updates roll in.
If you're looking for some pregame reading, you can check out CGB's series preview. Or you can check out this nice ESPN rundown that talks about Cal's (multiple) player of the year candidates and the amazing array of young talent on display this weekend in Berkeley. And while you're at it, VOTE FOR VAL. Go Bears!
