More than 75 teams will use the TCS Bomber Shootout this weekend to spark the fastpitch season to life.
The sold-out tournament (featuring teams from Texas, Oklahoma and even one from Colorado) is based in and around Austin, TX and brings out teams in the 10u, 12u and 14u age groups. The 2019 edition is the 19th running of the event; Triple Crown started its official partnership of the tourney with the Texas Bombers in 2015.
“Programs will be getting some of their highly touted teams on the field for the first time, so we expect the level of play to be very solid,” said Sarah Pow, tournament director. “It’s a great early look at how teams might showcase their lineups during the summertime schedule.”
The 14u Gold champion last year was Diamond Sports Hotshots/Nelson, who got past Glory Adkins Gold, 3-0. Weather sidelined the 12u Gold bracket, but the Silver was won by SA Angels ARod, who beat Texas Glory 2024, 5-1. At 10u, the Bombers CTX was the last team standing after an 8-4 win over Texas Glory 2K7.
There are multiple Texas events still available – next up is the June 7-9 Texas State Championships, which will be held in the Metroplex (Allen/Plano/McKinney). The July 18-21 Southwest Summer Nationals is packed with extra dimensions, including camp workouts with University of Texas coach Mike White.
