Softball opens season indoors

Softballs replace pigskins this weekend at the Bergstrom Football Complex, when the Iowa State softball team hosts Utah State and South Dakota State for its annual indoor Cyclone Invitational. Home plate is situated in the southeast corner of the artificial turf, with a regulation right field fence (190 feet) and shortened outfields in center and left.

Admission is free. Seating is available outside the right field fence, but fans must provide their own blankets and lawn chairs. Enter at the north door of the complex (signs will mark the entrance). Limited concessions will be available. The temperature in the facility varies with occupancy, but does not drop below 55.
