COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The Texas A&M Softball Double Play Club has announced that it will sponsor free admission for A&M students to this weekend’s NCAA Softball Regional. The first 100 students to display an official Texas A&M ID at the NCAA College Station Regional each day will receive free admission to the Aggie Softball Complex.
The double-elimination regional will take place Friday, May 17, through Sunday, May 19, and features No. 16 seed A&M, Penn, Baylor and Arizona.
