The Episcopal Softball program fields a Middle School and Varsity team. The program has advanced to post season play every year for the past four years. The Varsity team finished the 2020 season ranked first in the district and ninth in the state for class 3A. The teams use Marchman Field for their practices and home games. The newly opened Farley Callaghan Softball Training Facility next to Marchman Field has a covered batting cage that includes four hitting tunnels (which can be divided into eight shorter tunnels). Nets can also be pulled back to allow for one large covered area for defensive work (pitching and fielding). Four soft toss/tee stations and two bullpen areas were recently installed as well. Two additional bullpen stations and an infield area are available for pitchers and infielders behind the facility. All home games are live streamed through the NFHS Network.
