Texas Boom Elite, Triple Crown to work in association on powerful Southwest events
With quality softball teams springing to life in Texas in every corner of the state, it makes sense for Triple Crown Fastpitch to stay connected in the scene.
The Texas Boom Elite club program will work in association with Triple Crown to produce the Stars and Strikes Camp and Showcase Tournament, set for Aug. 6-8, 2021 in the Boom Elite’s hometown of El Paso, TX. This is a five-game guarantee for ages 18u, with a four-game guarantee for 14u teams.
Games will be played at the El Paso County Sportspark, which features 10 lighted fields on its 45-acre campus.
The Texas Boom was formed in May of 2018. The group currently has eight teams in ages 10u through 18u, and its 18u Sepi squad recently won the Silver Bracket at the TCS Southwest Summer Nationals.
There are multiple requests with the county and city in the system to add as many as four more events in 2021, and details on those showcases will be released accordingly. Texas Boom Elite will look to expand its tournament reach in 2022 as well with events planned for the Texas communities of Lubbock, Midland and San Angelo, along with Las Cruces, NM.
Chris Sepulveda, founder and president of Texas Boom Elite, said he’d like teams from around the nation to see these events as a meeting ground for great competition and an ideal spot for college coaches to track talent for their rosters.
“We are looking forward in associating ourselves with Triple Crown Sports for many reasons,” Sepulveda said. “One of the top reasons is they always host great tournaments, which we plan to emulate or hopefully take this to another level with them. We plan to primarily focus on camps, showcases and occasionally have regular tournaments.
“Our number one goal is to help all players get looked at so they can hopefully achieve a dream they set forth regardless of where they are from. We look forward to hosting and extending our hospitality to all teams that attend our events.”
Triple Crown Sports has been producing youth, high school and college events for nearly 40 years and has a coast-to-coast presence in youth softball. TCS runs the Colorado 4th of July event, which drew more than 900 teams in 2021, as well at the TC Nationals, a highly competitive national championship tournament slated for July 2022 in southern California.
“It’s important for Triple Crown to be closely involved with organizations who have a desire to grow the game of softball, and who have the talent and organization to make a difference,” said Sean Hardy, chief operating officer of Triple Crown Sports. “The Texas Boom Elite check all the boxes when it comes to providing a valuable experience in their events, and we are pleased to offer our insight and help to take it even further.”
