The MAAC Council of Presidents announced Thursday that beginning next season, the MAAC softball championship will be held on the campus (or at the field the softball team uses regularly) of the regular season champion. Previously, the tournament was always held at a predetermined location. If the new format had been in place this past season, Marist would have hosted the tournament. The number one seed will, however, have the option of opting out of hosting if there is a facility conflict.
The Council of Presidents also confirmed that the softball tournament will continue to field six teams, terming it a success that resulted in "greater fan interest".
