The additional two days for the WCWS will also increase the economic impact of the event for the Oklahoma City metro area. The seven-day tournament had an estimated $24 million economic impact, according to the Oklahoma City Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Great news, but I'm not surprised. When Patty Gasso speaks, college softball listens.
