Triple Crown Sports, plus a unified group of the top fastpitch clubs in Texas, have elected to pull next week’s event (Texas 4th of July) from the Scrap Yard facility in the Houston area. The decision was made to acknowledge the hurt many players and coaches felt by recent comments made by the leadership of the Scrap Yard Dawgs program.
The group, which includes Triple Crown, Texas Glory, Texas Bombers, Impact Gold, Texas Blaze, American Freedom, Texas Aces, Illusions Gold and others, received a massive outcry from former and current players about the recent Twitter post. We believe sensitivity and tone are important ingredients of respect. Through sports we can help unify the many voices that deserve support in their right to protest and call for needed change as millions of people seek a new path for justice.
We support the professional players on the Scrap Yard team in the outrage and disappointment they felt. With that said, we will be moving our games starting on July 1-5 to alternative facilities in the Greater Houston area.
