Texas A&M to Host No. 2 Alabama this Weekend – KBTX

BRYAN-COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The Texas A&M softball team returns to Aggieland to host No. 2 Alabama this weekend at Davis Diamond.
The Aggies (24-17, 3-12 SEC) and the Crimson Tide (38-6, 13-5 SEC) begin the three-game series, presented by Pebble Creek Country Club, at 6 p.m. on Friday before continuing Saturday at 6 p.m. and wrapping up at noon on Sunday.
Friday night’s game features in-game entertainment provided by Tyler’s Amazing Balancing Act, while fans are encouraged to stick around for a postgame fireworks show. Additionally, the first 500 fans can pick up an A&M Hawaiian shirt from Guest Services.
On Saturday, Texas A&M Maroon Out will be on-site with full-stadium shirt giveaway and will be hosting a tailgate on the plaza outside the front of Davis Diamond. Saturday’s game has also been tabbed the program’s annual Military Appreciation game.

All-American Haley Lee was one of 25 finalists for the USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year on Wednesday. The recognition marked the second-straight year that the Kingwood, Texas, native was named a finalist for the prestigious award. Lee ranks second in NCAA Division I in batting average (.487) and fourth in on-base percentage (.616), while leading the Southeastern Conference in both categories. She is one of six players in the SEC to be named a finalist.
Senior Morgan Smith has made her way on base in a team-best 15-straight games, which is a game shy of matching a season best of anyone on the team. Smith ranks third on the team in batting average (.339) and has recorded a hit in 31 of A&M’s 41 games, turning in five multi-hit performances on the year.
Alabama holds the 19-4 series advantage over the Aggies and are 9-3 in games played in the Brazos Valley. Despite a pair of home runs from Lee and Shaylee Ackerman in the series finale last season, the Crimson Tide swept the three-game outing in Tuscaloosa.
Saturday’s contest airs nationally on SEC Network, while Friday and Sunday’s games are available via streaming on SEC Network+. Additionally, fans can tune in locally on 97.3 FM or inside the 12th Man Mobile App or follow along with live stats.
