The single-elimination tournament begins Friday and ends Sunday. All 10 schools that sponsor softball are participating: Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas A&M and Texas Tech.

It is the 13th consecutive year the Amateur Softball Association's stadium, 2801 NE 50, has hosted the event. The stadium also has hosted the Women's College World Series 17 times, including the last 11.

Single-session tickets will be available game days only at the stadium.
