The Texas Travelers Gold team was invited to attend a three game guarantee to play in front of the Texas Tech Softball Coaching staff November 12th and 13th in Lubbock, Texas.
The Travelers have already qualified for the USSSA World Series in Kansas City over the summer and are looking to earn bids for PGF and ASA Nationals. They have won the ASA Hall of Fame, Triple Crown and recently finished 3rd in the Ronald McDonald Elite Softball Tournament. The team boast some of the top players in the country and look forward to showcasing their talent in front of college coaches.
Saturday and Sunday’s matchup will feature the Travelers who are all 2022 or 2023 graduates playing against 2020 graduates from the Firecrackers, Texas Outlaws and Impact Gold teams. However, this isn’t the first time the Texas Travelers will be playing up a division as they play 14u tournaments quite often.
The 04 Texas Travelers are a very competitive select softball team and part of a rich tradition of success. Each team at each age group is hand selected. The organization as a whole is small in nature, but has the success and great reputation as the larger organization giving its girls the highest advantage when it comes to their future having sent over 175 girls to play college softball.
The coaches, led by Coach Kyle Bennett prepare the girls to be strong independent young women. They are getting their players ready to be able to start as a freshman on their high school varsity teams, and with the organizations connection and strong alumni support; the Texas Travelers girls will be able to attract the attention of some of the top softball programs in the country. As a matter of fact, Jordan Strickland, Baylor Bears history making shortstop, is on the coaching staff of the 04 Texas Travelers.
The 04 Texas Travelers is also a fully funded team. This is a plus in today’s select softball world where playing for teams require you to pay for their uniforms, coaches, team lessons on top of the travel expense to play at a high level. The softball players that play for the Texas Travelers save thousands of dollars for their parents because of the support they receive from the continued donations.
