Alabama softball wins 1,000th in program history

Twenty years after the program started, Alabama softball notched its 1,000th win. It only needed five innings to do it in the 14-0 win over Mississippi Valley State on Tuesday. Alabama averages more than 50 wins a year. “There’s not many times when you’re in a program that’s 20 years old that you get to see history, and Team 20 was a part of history tonight,” Alabama coach Patrick Murphy said.
