The St Pete Clearwater Invitational has a crazy strong field

Northwestern has been announced as the final participant, so the complete field is now set. Not a tournament format - just lots of games among some very, very strong teams. Specific match-ups will be announced later.

Here are the participants and their final RPI ranking from this year. Eight of the top 12 RPI teams will be playing.

UCLA – 2 (National Champions)
Washington - 3
Florida State – 5
Alabama – 6
Minnesota - 7
Oklahoma State - 9 (with a transfer pitcher named Eberle)
James Madison - 11
Northwestern - 12

Texas Tech - 19
South Carolina - 23
Georgia - 25
Missouri - 26
Virginia Tech - 27
South Florida – 32

Liberty - 55
Kansas - 148

All tournament passes have already sold out. But based on last year, most of the games will be on one of the ESPN networks, so that will be great exposure.

Hats off to ESPN and the respective teams pulling this off. Should be good for softball.
