Texas Glory Coach Kevin Shelton commented, "Personally, I'm extremely honored to have a chance to be associated with a game that includes some of the best fast-pitch players on the planet.  It's a rare-exciting chance, that our athletes are really looking forward to."

Easton stepped up when they caught wind of the Lone Star Elite team donating exclusive bats, gloves, helmets, and catching for the doubleheader April 18th.

"What a great time for Texas Fast Pitch Softball!"

"For years, we have promoted the talented players in Texas, along with my fellow coaches and this doubleheader will be a great opportunity for Team USA to see our talent," Jackson proclaimed.
