Softball to Play Exhibition Game on Wednesday at 2:00 pm
Feb. 26, 2013
The LBSU softball team (7-6) will host an exhibition game on Wednesday at 2:00 pm at the 49er Softball Complex vs. the Toyota Professional Team, which is comprised of Japanese players and two Americans - Olympians Natasha Watley and Monica Abbott.
Long Beach is gearing up for its third tournament of the season - the San Diego State Invite I, which will run Friday through Sunday this weekend. The exhibition marks the first home game of the season for the 49ers. Next week, they will host a 13-team tournament with games at Long Beach State, Mayfair Park in Lakewood and at Cal State Fullerton.
Last weekend at the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic in Cathedral City, the 49ers went 3-2 with wins over Oklahoma State, UNLV and Syracuse and losses to nationally-ranked Tennessee and Arizona. Against Syracuse, the 49ers overcame a 6-1 deficit to win as Ashley Holmes hit a walk-off grand slam to win the game.
