Nashville, TN – July 1, 2014
- National Pro Fastpitch announced today, plans to air an unprecedented amount of professional softball coverage during the 2014 season. The games will all be carried live on CBS Sports Network.
A total of 14 regular season games and four post-season games, including every game in the best-of-three championship series, will be televised this season. CBS Sports Network will televise games on Monday and Tuesday in prime time beginning July 7th. The 18-game package will triple the league’s previous television coverage.
“We are thrilled to partner with CBS Sports Network to deliver our premier level of competition to a national audience on a regular basis,” NPF Commissioner Cheri Kempf said. “We know there is a significant television fan base for fastpitch softball and we look forward to entertaining those folks along with many new fans with our summer of coverage.”
CBS Sports Network will begin its coverage on Monday, July 7 and will air games for seven consecutive weeks. The network will air six games in four days from August 11-14 to cap the 2014 regular season.  The NPF Championship series will be televised with one “pool play” game on August 20 and all three championship games on August 21-22, marking the first time the Championship Series Finals have been televised in their entirety.
The telecast team of Eric Collins and Barbara Jordan will deliver the action for all 18 games.
Collins, a veteran play-by-play man, is considered one of the preeminent voices for women's softball, calling hundreds of games at the professional, collegiate and international levels. Collins returns to the softball world after spending the last five years working as the Los Angeles Dodgers TV play-by-play announcer for games played outside California and Arizona.
Jordan has an extensive history with softball as a player, coach, and broadcaster. As a player, Jordan was a highly decorated three-time national champion in college who went onto play 8 years on the U.S. National team racking up multiple international championships along the way. In 1999, Jordan became the first national team member to cross over into professional softball opting for the Virginia Roadsters of the WPSL. Jordan has covered the NPF since 2010 on both radio and television.
