Middle infielder Aminah Vega is young enough to play in the 14U TC/USA National tournament, but this week, she’s starring for Gainesville Gold McFadyen in the 18U bracket.

Vega, who recently turned 15, went 2-for-4 with a single, double and two RBI in a 6-2, victory against EC Bullets Gold Schnute on Wednesday. The win earned Gainesville Gold a spot in the Championship bracket.

Vega has played a lot of softball in Atlanta over the last week, as she’s participated in both age-group tournaments, but she wouldn’t have it any other way.

“I like playing for them (the 18U),” she said. “It’s way more challenging and advanced. The game flows a lot faster. It’s fun.”

PA Chaos also beat Bullets, 3-1, on Wednesday to move into the Championship bracket. 2020 Auburn commit pitcher Maddie Penta threw a complete game and allowed just one run while striking out 12.


“She’s (Penta) such a hard worker,” PA Chaos catcher Maddie Fife said. “It’s just fun to be on the field with her.”

Fife, who is committed to St. Joseph’s as part of the 2019 class, went 2-for-3 with two doubles and an RBI.

Texas Bombers Gold vs Texas CF Intruders Gold

Early Wednesday morning, the Bombers and Intruders played an exciting contest. The Intruders jumped out to an early one-run lead, but Bombers star pitcher Heather Zook didn’t allow another run. 

Offensively, the Bombers finally broke through with three runs in the sixth behind four singles from Carlee Ratcliff, Abby Allen, Sydney Blakeman, and Gabby Rodriguez.

“(I wanted to) just stay down on the ball,” Rodriguez said when describing her at-bat. “That low pitch kept getting me, and when I saw the changeup, I took a hack at it.”

Rodriguez drove in the game-winning run with her single and scored later in the frame during the 3-1 win.

The Bombers victory eliminated the Intruders from the tournament. The Bombers won another game Wednesday but were unable to earn a spot in the Championship Bracket dropping their game against Batbusters Gomes.

When Chicago Bandits catcher Gwen Svekis launched a deep fly to center field in the top of the seventh inning in last night’s game two of the National ProFastpitch Championship, it had the looks of a second come-from-behind inning for the hosts. But as the ball dropped into USSSA Pride center fielder Allexis Bennett’s glove, the hopes of pulling even in the best-of-five series ended in a 5-4 victory for the Pride.
