Softball Fans Cheer on Ducks

Duck fansEUGENE, Ore. — If a restaurant or bar in the Eugene area had a TV, it was probably turned to the Women’s College World Series on Thursday.

The lady Ducks were on every single TV set at the Wild Duck Cafe near campus.

We talked to one group who reserved a table in advance to make sure they had a good seat to watch the game.

“We just want to support our girls because they are so awesome, and we feel like they don’t get enough recognition,” said one fan.

“I think it’s incredible and amazing. Last week we were watching them on the iPad because we could watch them on the TV, and they are ranked #1 in the nation, so I think it’s absolutely amazing they are at the College World Series,” said another fan.

Some fans told us they hope their success shows the university it needs to upgrade the softball stadium.

Oregon beat Florida State 3-0. They’ll take on Florida on Friday at 4 p.m.
