Let's be honest though, having probably the biggest softball event in the country hosted exclusively in Oklahoma is a bit weird. Like Brittney Griner at Baylor kind of weird. It's surprising it's lasted this long.

Sould it be moved based on the abortion law? That's the question. It's not really about the size of the event.

Is college baseball in Nebraska weird?

I admit, however, I don’t understand your Griner at Baylor reference of weird.

It shouldn't and won't but the thought crossed my mind. Professional leagues have moved big sporting events because of political issues but they have the clout to do so. With the popularity of softball right now I'd bet there are dozens of cities in states where abortion laws won't change any time soon who would love to become the new home to the Women's World Series but that would require the NCAA to do something about it and they don't have the power to make a decision like that right now.

The NCAA is feckless right now and one opinion article aside there hasn't been much of a call for this so it won't happen.

Yes, though not for the same reason.

I'm not sure how you don't think it's weird about Brittney Griner at Baylor, a Baptist college in Texas, as a very masculine lesbian woman.

No stranger than the college baseball championship being in Omaha

In that case, Oklahomans need to get on the ball and think about making petitions to vote on repealing the abortion ban laws. Instead, Oklahomans are currently more interested in circulating 3 petitions related to cannabis. However, it may be too early to make petition drives until Roe v. Wade is overturned.

Investment group warns that Oklahoma abortion laws could hurt business recruitment and economic development. However, Oklahoma lawmakers shrug off such concerns, saying that if there’s an economic price to pay for protecting unborn life, Oklahomans are willing to pay it. However, I don't think there is anything to gain by making Oklahoma more attractive to far-right Christian groups like the Phelps cult in Topeka.

Are these petitions related to recreational use?

You got the beginnings of a country music song with those words.
Well, I was drunk the day my Lesbian basketball player mom got out of the Texas Baptist university
And I went to pick her up in the rain
But before I could get to the station in my pickup truck
She got detained by the Russians for illegal vaping paraphernalia

Is she still in prison in Russia? Man, they need to get her out!

So one persons opinion is that it should move, based on one softball playing young woman who aborted her kid for selfish reasons. Granted give it a time period and make exceptions for rape and incest....but not based on what someone thinks is best for their own personal future without thoughts toward the life they helped create...even if by accident. That doesn't take into account what's best for the baby in the womb at all. IMHO, these are precisely the types of abortions (selfish reasons) we should want to limit, OR at least require to be very very early if at all allowed.

It might be one person's opinion today, but that opinion is going to increase. Whether or not it will increase enough for the NCAA to do anything we'll have to wait and see. There simply isn't another neutral site softball facility like the HoF to have the event at, at least not that I'm aware of.
