Former All-American , Gold Medalist and NPF Champion, Jessica Mendoza, now a MLB analyst working Sunday Night Baseball for ESPN, returns to ESPN’s softball coverage for the Super Regionals and the Women’s College World Series ESPN announced on Tuesday. Mendoza, who began her career with ESPN as a college softball analyst and has called the WCWS for a number of years since joining ESPN in 2007, will be reunited with Michele Smith, play-by-play commentator Beth Mowins and reporter Holly Rowe in Los Angeles when UCLA hosts Ole Miss.

On January 13, 2016, ESPN officially named Jessica Mendoza to the Sunday Night Baseball team as an analyst. The announcement was made after a historic 2015 for Mendoza, who became the first female analyst for a nationally televised MLB Postseason game on October 6, 2015: AL Wild Card Game on ESPN. Mendoza prior, became the first female ESPN MLB game analyst during the August 24, 2015 edition of Monday Night Baseball. She appeared on several Sunday Night Baseball telecasts during the stretch run of the season. Mendoza was the first female analyst for a Men’s College World Series telecast in 2015.

Mendoza did work Softball’s Super Regional and Women’s College World Series in 2016 with Mowins, Smith and Rowe like she had done in past years. This weekend Super Regional will be Mendoza first Softball telecast of the season.

Amanda Scarborough will work along with commentator Eric Colllins in Gainesville, Fla., for the call of the SEC matchup between the  Alabama Crimson Tide and the  Florida Gators. Scarborough will work the Women’s College World Series Adam Amin and reporter Laura Rutledge.
