TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - In light of the tornado that caused massive damage in the Tuscaloosa area Wednesday, the Alabama softball team's weekend series with Kentucky originally scheduled to play at Rhoads Stadium April 29-May 1 has been canceled and will not be made up.
"We want to send our condolences and sympathy to everyone who was affected by the tornado," UA head coach Patrick Murphy said. "For us, this community means so much and we decided this wasn't the right time to play. There are a lot more important things than softball at this time. Now is our time to support those in our community that lost a loved one, lost a house or were in any way affected by this terrible storm."
The Crimson Tide is slated to return to action May 6-8 against Mississippi in Oxford, Miss., to close out the regular season.
