We’ve been photographing the Women’s College World Series softball championship here at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium  in Oklahoma City for the past several days. The good news is that both Oklahoma and Oklahoma State made the tournament this year. The bad news is that OU and OSU were both eliminated on Saturday after only two games each.

Here are some of The Oklahoman’s photographs from the tournament so far. If you’d like to see photo galleries from the games, you can check out our photo gallery page.
