Softball teams take shelter in Oklahoma storm

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – With the Women's College World Series delayed by severe weather in the Oklahoma City area, the teams involved were staying away from Hall of Fame Stadium and sought shelter in a downtown parking garage near their hotels.

Team representatives from Oklahoma and Texas, who were supposed to play each other Friday night, said their teams took shelter in the parking garage beneath the Cox Convention Center.

Tennessee, which was supposed to be playing Washington, also sent out a statement that the Lady Vols left their hotel for the parking garage.

The NCAA delayed the start of games because of the weather and planned to give 2 hours' notice before play started.
