Texas Fastpitch League
The Texas FastPitch League Inaugural Season
The Texas FastPitch League or TFL is a collection of teams working collaboratively in Texas to grow the game and provide Our Fastpitch Community a level playing field where all squads from the Biggest Clubs to the loneliest of small or new teams have a chance to compete at the highest level.
The TFL three steps are:
1. Teams from 18u through 14u will play minimum of 8 league games throughout the summer. Earning points based on their winning percentage in designated league games.
2. Already established Competitive Events will be designated TFL events. Finishes in the tournaments will generate bracket points.
3. TFL Championship, open to all teams in the league, will be seeded by a team’s ranking based on the combination of league and bracket points. The Championship will have a World Series format with each team playing in a regional. Winners will graduate to a super regional best two-out-of-three before advancing to the final eight that is played out just like the CWS culminating with a final series between two squads. The championship will take place in Plano over five days, Aug. 4-8.
All TFL games will be streamed using Athletes Go Live which will allow us to maintain appropriate history and statistics. Standings will be updated daily and individual recognition will occur weekly.
TFL Juniors will be on July 23rd - 26th in Sugar Land, Tx (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) and includes 12u and 10u teams, but will not include a league in 2020, but will have a TFL Juniors Championship. Cost is $495 and will follow a 4 GG format.
We are excited to kickoff this new chapter of cooperation in Texas FastPitch. Though we have always worked well together to improve the state of play, the TFL ushers in a significant step up in collaboration while leveling the playing field.
Leading the TFL are Dave McCorkle, Scott Smith, Jazz Jackson, KC Jackson, Kevin Shelton, Keith Allen, Jack Fultz, JB Slimp, Jonathan Lampl
