Texas Travelers play the Fastpitch & Firecrackers Tournament

The 04 Texas Travelers are gearing up for the Hall of Fame Tournament in Oklahoma City and then the coveted 2015 ASA/USA National Championship Tournament held in Normal, Illinois.  This elite select softball team is starting to peak at the right time with their win against the 02 Texas Glory in the 12U Summer Swingin Tournament Championship Game a couple of weeks ago.

The Fastpitch & Firecrackers Tournament will be held in Mesquite, Texas at the Girls Softball Complex.  In addition to the Texas Travelers, the tournament will feature 26 teams from North and East Texas.  Teams like 04 Texas Glory, Texas Fusion, Texas Pride 04, Jawbreakers, Texas Force, Lady Storm 04, Batbusters, North Texas Storm, Texas Elite, MOJO, Dallas Tigers, Inferno, Firecrackers DFW, American Freedom, and Sneaky Cleats are just a few of the teams entered to play in the double elimination tournament.

The Texas Travelers will face Firecrackers DFW and the Inferno in both of their Pool Play games.  The seeds have already been set with a blind draw putting the Travelers against the winner of CRUE Fastpitch or Texas Force at 5:15 PM on Saturday evening.  The winner of that game will play at 8 AM on Sunday with the championship game scheduled for 6 PM on Sunday.

Coach Jordan Strickland, Baylor Bear Softball Legend and 2014 Women’s College World Series All-Tournament Team will be leading her Travelers with the “Sic Em” attitude that made her such a fan favorite in Waco.  “The girls really respond to Jordan when she is in the dugout.  In addition to knowing the game; Jordan brings a swagger to the team helping them overcome the toughest of challenges on the softball field”, states Head Coach Kyle Bennett.

The competition will be strong, the days will be long; but the Texas Travelers and their fans live for softball weekends.  Good luck to all of the teams and girls competing in the Fastpitch & Firecrackers Tournament.
