Virginia Tech softball announces date for second annual Leadoff Banquet

BLACKSBURG – The Virginia Tech softball program will officially kick off the 2018 season with its second annual Leadoff Banquet, which will be held on Sunday, Jan. 21, at 6 p.m. at the German Club.

Space is limited and all proceeds from the event will go towards wall graphics that will be placed in the program’s new indoor batting facility.

"Our first Leadoff Banquet last year was a huge success,” said head coach Scot Thomas. “Our supporters were treated to a night full of entertainment and they were able to meet and spend time with our student-athletes and coaching staff. This year’s banquet will be even more special as the funds will be used for the graphics in our indoor facility. It’ll already be the best equipped facility in the ACC, but now we want it to look the best as well.”

Attendees will be treated to dinner, a silent auction, a panel discussion with Coach Thomas and players and games for prizes, including trivia and 50/50 bingo. Auction items include going on a day trip this season with the Hokies, a Women’s College World Series signed by the 2008 Hokies, a Bimbo Coles signed basketball, an Andre Davis signed football, a round of golf on the Pete Dye River Course and more.

Tickets are $30 and cash or check will be accepted at the door. Fans can also print out and mail in the registration form by clicking on the link above. Please contact Whitney Davis Showalter with any questions via email at, or phone at (540) 231-7240.
