04 Texas Travelers play the 12U ASA Champions Cup

The 04 Texas Travelers never shy away from tough challenges, and this weekend in softball won’t be any different.  The elite softball team has been chosen to represent the State of Texas in the 2015 ASA/USA National Championship held in Normal, Illinois.  ASA is the governing body of softball and the National Championship tournament will be the deciding factor for the top select softball team in the United States.

This weekend, the 10U Texas Travelers will be playing the 12U tournament where many of the teams are about to move to 14U in September.  They are utilizing the tournament to continue to prepare them for the ASA National Championship Tournament where the strongest teams from each state will compete for top honors.  The Champions Cup is a double elimination 2-day tournament where pool play will seed the teams.  Teams such as American Freedom, Texas Glory, Texas Reign and others will be vying for the 12U ASA Champions Cup.

The Texas Travelers will begin Pool Play facing D1 03 and then will play either Texas Glory or Texas Reign in the second pool play game.  Saturday’s games will start at 9:30 AM on Walkers Field in Fort Worth, Texas and Sunday’s Championship Game is scheduled for 4 PM.

The softball girls are coming off of 2 straight tournament championship wins.  They recently won the 2015 Fastpitch and Firecrackers Tournament and a couple of weeks ago the 2015 Summer Swingin 12U Tournament.  The Texas Travelers enjoy the victories, but utilize these tournament to get them ready for the most sought after ASA National Championship.  In addition to playing in top tournaments around the country, the Texas Travelers also participate in workouts with the 2001/2002 Firecrackers.
