2015 Women’s College World Series viewership bettered Men’s College World Series by 31%


In a week where the Twitter-verse is shining a spotlight on women’s sports due to comments tweeted by Sports Illustrated and MMQB writer Andy Benoit, figured it was worth noting that the viewership for this year’s women’s College World Series softball easily eclipsed viewership for the men’s baseball championship.

(if you’re on a mobile phone the table will be more readable if you flip your phone into landscape mode):
