We Must Protect This House
Welcome to the USSSA 12U-A World Series here on our home fields at Memorial Park in Bentonville, AR. It's a 5-game guarantee tournament with a stacked field.
Our weather this week is low to mid-90s with increased chance of rain Thursday and Friday. But first, we've got two pool games today against tough opponents in the Kansas Crush and St. Louis Storm at 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. respectively. Thursday's pool game is at 9:45 a.m. vs. the Oklahoma Force.
Duration of games is always the toughest thing to figure out from one tournament to the next, but we're thinking these will be 90-minute games in pool today and Thursday. We'll update as games move along. The bracket will be seeded Thursday after pool play.
Today we're in our white tops, orange belts and striped socks. We'll update uniforms day to day.
It's been a pleasure having you follow our Team on Gamechanger this season. With one more to go, the hay is in the barn folks. Time to bring our best and git-r-done. Cheer us on out there!
USA Elite Select World
We're counting down to our tourney opening exhibition game today at the USA Elite Select World Fastpitch Championship in Shawnee Mission, Kansas.
Best teams in the country. First two games on infield artificial turf with stadium seating. It's hot. High 90s.
We've got a pool game later today and one tomorrow. Bracket is double elimination. 7-inning games.
For the exhibition we're in the custom Oreo tops with black pants and striped socks. We'll wear the Orange tops for pool later.
Fence is 210-feet around. Pretty good lip from the infield turf to the deep outfield grass.
These kids are special. Here's hoping they play that way this week. Starting shortly.
This weekend is the FASA 12U-Open State Championship at Bishop Park in Bryant, AR. It’s a 3-game guarantee, bracket only format. The tourney features 15 teams from three States (AR, MS and LA) including 10 teams that aren’t in the Texas Glory Organization.
For you Royals fans, Bryant’s the birth place of favorite son and Royals Pitcher Travis Wood.
The weather will be in the 80s during the day and feel hotter. Sixties at night and feel stickier. They got some rain down there today, but hopefully Cindy has run her course and we’ll avoid more rain.
Games will be five innings or 75 minutes, whichever is first. Run rules are 12 after three innings, 10 after four and 8 after five.
Our first game is at 1:30 p.m. Saturday vs. Texas Glory Adkins 05 Gilbert, an 11-U Team out of Bryant. If we win, we’ll play at 6 p.m. If we lose, we play again at 7:30 p.m. with either opponent to be determined.
Sat. – Orange top, black belt, striped socks
Sun. – Johnny Cashes (blackout)
(Reserve – White tops if needed)
It’s Broccoli Time!
