TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (seminoles.com) - The Florida State University softball team has added 11 of its home games in 2012 to the Seminoles.com All-Access schedule.
The added total brings FSU's number of televised and web-streamed home games this upcoming season to 17. The additional games that will be streamed on Seminoles.com All-Access include this Friday's season opener against Stephen F. Austin at 12:15 p.m. and the following game versus Mississippi at 2:30 p.m.
Other contests that will be streamed on Seminoles.com include FSU's contest against UCF (Feb. 22), a doubleheader against N.C. State (March 10), a twinbill against Florida Gulf Coast (March 29), a single game against South Alabama (April 12), a doubleheader versus Boston College (April 21) and the final regular-season home game against B.C. (April 22).
"We are looking to have some big crowds this season, but for those who can't make it out to the park, we're grateful for these extra opportunities to watch us play," head coach Lonni Alameda said. "When you combine our streamed games with our nationally televised games, Seminole softball fans will be able to visually see a majority of our 28 games played at JoAnne Graf Field this year."
Interested subscribers to Seminoles.com All-Access can watch any streamed event for either a monthly subscription of $9.95 or a yearly subscription of $79.95.
FSU softball's six ESPN-affiliated games involve two intriguing matchups. FSU's doubleheader on April 1 versus North Carolina will be streamed on ESPN3.com, while the series finale will take place at a special time of 7 p.m. on Monday, April 2, and it will be televised on ESPNU.
The same lineup takes place two weeks later at JoAnne Graf Field, as FSU hosts conference rival Georgia Tech. The Seminoles and Yellow Jackets begin play with a Sunday doubleheader on April 15 on ESPN3.com, followed by an ESPNU matchup on April 16 at 7 p.m.
Fans can follow all season long as the Seminoles begin their march toward their 13th consecutive trip to the NCAA postseason. Florida State is one of just 12 current NCAA Division I schools that has reached the NCAA postseason in every year since 2000. FSU's 24 NCAA Championship berths are also the sixth-most in the nation.
