Tech to Host 2018 ACC Softball Championship

May 19, 2017

THE FLATS – The Atlantic Coast Conference unveiled its championship dates and sites for the 2017-18 academic year and Georgia Tech will serve as the host of the 2018 ACC Softball Championship on May 9-12, 2018 at Shirley Clements Mewborn Field.   
 
It marks just the second time that Georgia Tech will host the eight-team ACC Softball Championships. The first time Tech hosted was in 2011.

Shirley Clements Mewborn Field is one of the premier softball facilities in the nation. The $4.9 million on-campus home of the Yellow Jackets was officially dedicated on March 10, 2009. It is named after Shirley Clements Mewborn, one of the first two women to receive a degree from Georgia Tech.

In its first two years at Mewborn Field, Georgia Tech hosted an NCAA Regional and was featured on ESPN. In 2009, Mewborn Field and the Jackets played host to the Atlanta Super Regional against eventual nation champion Washington, which was televised on ESPN and in 2010 the entire Atlanta Regional was broadcast in HD on ESPN and ESPN2.

Mewborn Field is a state-of- the-art facility nestled at the corner of Fowler and Eighth Streets on the Georgia Tech Campus. It features a capacity of 1,500, including nearly 600 chair backs. Whether it’s in the main grandstand or in a standing room area, each spot at Mewborn Field gives you a feeling like you are on top of the action, as well as a spectacular view of the Atlanta skyline, especially at night.
