BERKELEY – California softball fans will have their first chance to preview the 2013-14 squad with a fall ball slate that includes three tournaments, including one hosted by Cal at Levine-Fricke Field, head coach Diane Ninemire announced Thursday.

 The Golden Bears will play in the University of the Pacific (Oct. 5-6), Battle of the Bay (Oct. 12) and Cal (Oct. 20) tournaments.

Fall ball begins with Cal’s annual trip to Stockton for the UOP Tournament beginning Saturday, Oct. 5.
