Oregon Softball coach Mike White, after last years winning record which included 56 wins and reaching the Final Four in the College World Series, starts this season with a pre-season #2 national ranking. The early schedule shows 24 games with various teams in Texas, Arizona and California.
The Pac-12 season starts in mid-March with OSU at Howe Field. Other three game Pac-12 series in Eugene are with Washington, Arizona State and Cal. The Ducks will play a double header with Portland State in Hillsboro, Tuesday, April 7. This is the last year for softball at Howe Field as on-site construction of the new Jane Sanders Stadium starts at the end of the 2015 season and will be ready for 2016.
