Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic
February 17 - February 25
According to the organizers, the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic is the nation’s largest and most prestigious preseason college softball tourney, featuring 50 top Division I teams. For the third year in a row, the Cathedral City, Calif., event will span two weekends — Feb. 17-19 and Feb. 22-25, 2018.
The lineup of teams includes UCLA, Stanford, Cal-Berkeley, North Carolina, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, and the Japan National Team, plus many more…
Every game of the Mary Nutter Classic will be available live and via replay exclusively on FloSoftball.com via FloPRO subscription, which offers unfettered access to live and archived footage of top club and college softball events, original documentaries on stars of the sport, a library of technique videos and more.
The two weekends of softball competition are hosted at the Big League Dreams Complex in Cathedral City, Calif., which was selected because of the idyllic Southern California weather in February and its destination draw for fans and teams to the resort community.
It is estimated that the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic brings in more revenue to the businesses in the Coachella Valley than every other event except the Bob Hope PGA Classic. More than 25,000 visitors came to the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic in 2017.
Teams are selected and invited to create the highest RPI event in the country as well as creating a diverse regional mix of teams representing the entire country.
