Oklahoma softball's 2013 National Championship team will celebrate its second title with fans on Friday.

All fans are invited to Marita Hynes Field on Friday at 6:30 p.m. The event is open to the public and free. There will be a highlight video, fireworks show and more.

On Tuesday, senior Michelle Gascoigne threw a complete game shutout, allowing three hits and fanning 12, while two-time USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year Keilani Ricketts knocked in all four RBIs in Oklahoma's 4-0 victory against Tennessee at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium to win the program's second Women's College World Series title since 2000.

Oklahoma spent the entire season ranked No. 1. This 2013 Sooner team is already among the discussions of rank among best softball teams ever.

Per OU Athletics:

"OU President David Boren, Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Programs and Director of Athletics Joe Castiglione are anticipated to make congratulatory remarks at the event, while head coach Patty Gasso and OU softball team captains will give their thoughts on one of the most successful seasons in NCAA history."
