Badgers softball ready to display stadium upgrades

Posted: Updated:

After starting the season with 26 games away from home, the Badgers softball team will finally get to play in front of their home crowd. Wisconsin hosts Nebraska Friday at 4 p.m. in the home opener. Fans will be able to check out a new roster and a new video board.

The Badgers will be debuting a high-definition video board. The improvement was made possible by a $600,000 gift from the Irwin A. and Robert D. Goodman Foundation Inc. Fans will now be able to check out player headshots, stat displays, instant replays and highlight videos.

"A terrific facility has been made even better,” Wisconsin softball head coach Yvette Healy said in a statement. "I can’t wait for our fans to see the enhancements this spring. The new video scoreboard will make our game day atmosphere even more exciting for families and friends to experience a Badger softball game."

Irwin and Robert Goodman were longtime area businessmen. The brothers made significant contributions to the softball program prior to their deaths. That support continues. The Goodman Foundation helped fund Wisconsin's new indoor facility in 2013.
