The 2024 college softball regular season has officially wrapped up. This season brought many record-breaking heroes and fascinating stats.

These stats can tell us about strengths, weaknesses and which players are leading the race for the 2024 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year award. They can also provide us some hints about what we might see in the Women's College World Series, which begins May 30. The NCAA Softball Selection Show Presented by Capital One will air live on Sunday, May 12 at 7 p.m. on ESPN2.

With the conference tournaments upon us and with the final top 25 poll of the regular season out, here are the key numbers to know from the college softball season.

Stats are through May 7.

15: Clemson's pitching staff has allowed just 15 home runs all season, the fewest by any Power 5 conference team this year.

14: Charlotte started the season with a bang, downing Florida State 6-5 in the first game. The 49ers have quietly kept up their momentum throughout and ended on a program-best 14-game winning streak.

13: With UCLA's 12-1 win over Arizona State on Saturday, the Bruins clinched their 13th and final Pac-12 regular-season championship.

12: There were 12 perfect games this season. Ball State's Francys King claimed the final of the regular season in an 8-0 victory over Central Michigan on Saturday.

11: There were 11 different pitchers with over 200 strikeouts this season.

Brooklyn Shroyer (FDU), NiJaree Canady (Stanford), Kasey Ricard (Boston), Courtney Wyche (Maryland), Maddie Penta (Auburn), Maddia Groff (Southern Illinois), Isabella Smith (Campbell), Rissa Bajusz (Western Michigan), Maya Johnson (Belmont), Olivia Lackie (South Alabama) and Mariah Lopez (Utah).
