Virginia Tech softball’s win over Team USA in 2008 has often been referred to as the “Miracle on Dirt.” Tech pitcher threw a no-hitter against the USA national team, shocking the softball world.

HokieVision, a division of Virginia Tech Athletics, put together a short documentary on the game, entitled “Miracle on Dirt”.


HokieVision will also be publishing “Miracle in Morgantown” on May 15, depicting Virginia Tech’s come from behind win against West Virginia in the 1999 season. The Hokies open their 2017 season vs. West Virginia at FedEx Field on Sept. 3.

If HokieVision continues to produce these types of documentaries, there are loads of possibilities that could turn into interesting stories.

  1. Saw her pitch twice. One was a no hitter over FSU. If we had a little more offense behind her, we would of won the national championship. Great Hokie.

  2. Loved it. Only complaint is I would have loved if they could have got interviews/comments with some of the Team USA players and coaches.

  3. still amazing! little ol’ VT.
