ESPN’s Longhorn Network has confirmed that it will be broadcasting nearly 50 softball games and 32 baseball match-ups, along with extensive Olympic sports coverage during the Spring.

With the return of Game Plan with David Pierce, as well as several spring sports in action, LHN is a one-stop shop for all things Texas all the live long day.

Texas Softball

Preseason No. 6 Texas is already poised for the postseason, with nearly 30 Longhorn softball games set for LHN in 2020 and almost 50 softball games total on LHN this season. UT was voted to finish second in the Preseason Big 12 Softball Coaches’ Poll and have strong representation on the Softball America Preseason All-America Team and USA Softball National Player of the Year watch list.

Texas returns 11 student-athletes that earned playing time in at least 41 games last season, and boast a returning trio of 2019 Softball America All-Americans in pitchers Miranda Elish and Shealyn O’Leary and second baseman Janae Jefferson.
