There’s a select group of more than 2,000 softball players who are not only digging in at the end of the school year, but also getting their game face on for a memorable tournament experience.
Sold out weeks ago, the 2019 Triple Crown OKC tournament (May 31-June 3) will welcome 175 teams, ages 10u through 18u, to Oklahoma City for one of those ideal moments on the fastpitch schedule. There’s spirited competition within the five-game guarantee, with 19 states represented in the overall field, while plenty of off-the-diamond activities add extra value and amusement for teams making the trip as summertime gets ready to kick in.
That includes a bustling Team Check-In and Player Party at Remington Park (May 31, 2-6 p.m.) that puts pin trading, vendors, food, music, photos and other activities right in front of each athlete. One of the essential charms of Triple Crown OKC is the next-door access to the Women’s College World Series, as the final eight teams in the chase for the NCAA Division I national title will be competing at the same time.
Two new touches for 2019 include a social media contest that will award a Yeti Tundra 45 cooler (teams required to post four specific photos with the #TCOKC hashtag), and full-on livestream coverage from BallerTV that will be available for every game at every field. With teams ranging from Florida, Washington, Mississippi, California and throughout the West and Midwest, this is shaping up to be an iconic stop on the fastpitch calendar.
“This event brings great out-of-state competition, allowing teams to see matchups they may not have experienced before,” said event director Sarah Pow. “Not only do they get to play softball, but the fiesta and vibe around the event with the WCWS and local activities allow teams to have fun on and outside the field.”
