The Texans Score Big Win

This past weekend Stumpy and his Senior Softball team, The Texans, participated in, and won their age group in The Tournament Of Champions, held in Lakeland, Florida! This event, sponsored by Senior Softball USA, is made up of teams that in 2008 won state, regional or national championship tournaments and represents the best of the best in senior softball.
The Texans, proudly showing their championship trophy and grins, beat a very good team from the Cape Cod, Mass. area 22-21, having to rally in the bottom of the seventh inning from a 21-14 deficit. The rally is only half of the story. The Texans trailed 21-14 with 2 outs and the bases empty, but 8 hits and one walk later, they pulled out the amazing victory!

In 2008, Stumpy and The Texans played 68 games with a record of 52 wins and 16 losses. They won the 70 plus, Texas State Championship and the Softball Players Association, National Championship and finished second in the other 2 major association’s tournaments.

This year, the season started early and The Texans are looking to repeat their championship performance in 2009. Their second tournament in 2009 will be held in Georgetown, Texas in late March.
