10u Texas Travelers play in 12u Hits for Hero’s Slam Tournament

Fresh from being select to represent Texas in the ASA/USA National Championship, the Texas Travelers have been asked to enter the Hits for Hero’s Slam Tournament held in Arlington, Texas this weekend May 16, 2015.  The tournament is a 12u tournament, but that doesn’t worry the Texas Travelers who are a 10u team.  The only difference will be that the mound is a little further back (5 feet) and their completion will be a little larger than the teams they usually face.
The Texas Travelers are one of the top teams in Texas and very much looking forward to being ready to play some of the top teams in the nation at the 2015 ASA National Championships in Normal, Illinois.  However, they have to find tournaments that will help them continue to improve and that means finding stronger more competitive teams.  This IFA-VTD sanction tournament will have 12u teams from Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana.  The tournament will have 3 pool play games which will seed the teams into a single elimination bracket games.

In addition to the Texas Travelers, some of the teams that will be competing are Arlington Wildcats, Texas Black Cats, Southern Force, Texas Reign, Showtime Fastpitch, Thunder Fastpitch, Firecrackers DFW, Texas Force Picazo, Black Sox, Texas Glory Blue, Cleburn Fusion, Frisco Freeze, TX Glory Adkins, Oklahoma Bombers, Lady Rebels, Texas Force Smith, Southeastern Synergy, Mistix Fastpitch, West Texas Venom, Showtime Nigo, Louisian Titans, and East Texas Edge.

The 04 Texas Travelers will start pool play games at 9:15 AM against Thunder Fastpitch 03, then Texas Glory Adkins 02 at 11:45 AM, followed by West Texas Venom 02 at 2:15 PM.  Bracket play will begin at 3:30 PM with the championship game being scheduled at 6:30 PM.

The Texas Travelers would like to wish all teams’ good luck and have a safe tournament.  We look forward to competing with you on the field.
