Crimson Tide off to good start
Patrick Murphy has been at Alabama since the softball program was started in 1997. He has led the Crimson Tide to eight Women’s College World Series appearances. But this team, seeded second, has a viable shot at reaching the best-of-3 finals for the first time in school history.
The Crimson Tide took the first step Thursday night at Hall of Fame Stadium by posting a 5-3 win over SEC rival Tennessee.
