On Saturday, June 25 the Florida Amateur Softball Association and the Amateur Softball Association of America will welcome the USA Women’s National Fast Pitch Softball Teams to Tampa Bay.
The National Team and the Junior National Team will compete in a double-header starting at 6:00 p.m. at the Plant City Stadium. After the games have concluded, fans have the opportunity to attend an autograph session.
The National Team, led by Coach Ken Eriksen, who is also the Head Softball Coach at the University of South Florida, is preparing for the upcoming World Cup of Softball VI in Oklahoma City later this summer. The Junior National team, featuring University of South Florida’s Kourtney Salvarola, is preparing for the Junior Women’s World Championship in South Africa this winter.
The double header is just part of a Girls Fast Pitch Tournament at the Plant City Stadium and the Randy Larsen FourPlex that weekend. The tournament is for Girls 8U through 18U in both A and B Divisions.
