Former Bruins Andrea Duran, Megan Langenfeld and Natasha Watley all begin play at the 2010 KFC World Cup of Softball on Thursday at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City. Duran and Watley are members of the U.S. Women's National Team, while Langenfeld is a part of the USA Women's Futures National Team.

The two USA squads are joined by teams from Canada and Japan. Play begins on Thursday when Team USA takes on Canada (7 p.m. CT) and the Futures squad faces Japan (9 p.m.). On Friday, the two U.S. squads switch opponents, with the Futures team playing Canada at 3 p.m. and the National squad playing Japan at 7 p.m.

On Saturday, the two U.S. teams play each other at 11 a.m. They both then play again later in the day, as Team USA meets Japan at 7 p.m. and the USA Futures face Canada at 9 p.m. Round robin play concludes on Sunday with another doubleheader. The USA Futures squad plays Japan at 12 p.m. and Team USA at 7 p.m., with the National team also playing Canada at 4 p.m.

The top two teams battle for the World Cup title at 8 p.m. on Monday, while the bottom two squads play for third place at 4 p.m.

Six of the games will be televised on either ESPN and ESPN2, as well as ESPN3.com. Thursday and Friday's National team games against Canada and Japan will air live on ESPN, while Saturday and Sunday's contests for Team USA against Japan and Canada, as well as the championship game, will be broadcast on ESPN2. In addition, the National-Futures tilt on Saturday will air on tape delay at 1 p.m. CT on ESPN. Gametracker will also be available at USA Softball.com by clicking on the schedule tab.

Team USA won the gold medal at last year's KFC World Cup of Softball.

Duran and Watley are both coming off gold-medal performances at last month's ISF Women's World Softball Championship in Caracas, Venezuela. Langenfeld is no stranger to Oklahoma City, as last month she helped the Bruins to their 12th national title and 11th NCAA crown, earning Women's College World Series Most Outstanding Player honors.
