Conroe, TX – May 14th, 2018 - Scrap Yard Fast Pitch, LLC (SYFP) is proud to announce their 2018 summer schedule! The much-anticipated schedule will provide softball fans over 30 opportunities to watch professional softball all across the country against the best competition in the world.
Scrap Yard Fast Pitch will kick off the summer at the Scrap Yard Sports Complex on June 8th. The 3rd Annual Big Dawg Invite, a tournament that will include over 80 elite travel teams from across the South, will highlight opening weekend. Athletes will compete during the day and have the opportunity to kick back at night to watch the professionals have their turn on the field!
Scrap Yard Fast Pitch will continue what will be their longest homestand of the season when USA Softball comes to town! USA Softball, the national governing body of softball headquartered in Oklahoma City, will bring both National teams to Conroe from June 11-17 to hold training camp, compete in intrasquad games, and compete against the SYFP team. The week will be highlighted by the inaugural Nike Softball Camp for athletes ages 7 to 12, and will conclude with games between Scrap Yard Fast Pitch and the WSBC World Championship and Japan All-Star Series rosters. Make sure to mark your calendar to watch SYFP compete against the red, white, and blue!
Following the homestand, Scrap Yard Fast Pitch will travel to McNeese State University for games to be played June 21-23 (Thursday-Saturday). These games will coincide with the Jennie Finch World Series, an event that began in 2015 and hosts teams ages 6U to 12U in Sulphur, LA.
The following week, Scrap Yard Fast Pitch will head to Colorado to meet fans from all across the nation! Games will run along with the Triple Crown Sports Sparkler and Fireworks Tournaments, and will be played June 26-28 (Tuesday-Thursday). With over 900 teams, 16,000 players, and 600 college coaches in attendance, this will no doubt be one of the marquee events of the summer!
As the summer rolls on into July, Scrap Yard Fast Pitch will face a hefty amount of international competition. SYFP will head out west to Irvine, CA for a four-game series with Team Mexico. The two days of double headers versus Team Mexico will take place on July 7 and 8 (Saturday and Sunday), and will be a great precursor leading into the International Cup (formerly known as the World Cup of Softball).

In the golden California sunshine, SYFP will face Puerto Rico, Taipei, the Philippines, USA Red, Peru, China, and one other team that will be announced at a later date.

Scrap Yard Fast Pitch will conclude its summer schedule with two games in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on July 24 and 25. These games will take place at the beautiful TicketReturn.Com Field, home of minor league baseball team the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. The combination of the devoted Pelicans fan base and softball fans in South Carolina will provide a packed house with high energy!
Throughout the entire summer, Scrap Yard Fast Pitch’s focus will be on bringing the game to the fans and creating lasting relationships with the next generation of softball. Whether an autograph session after the game, a camp run by the pros, or an impromptu selfie session, SYPF will never waiver in their commitment to give back to the fans and empower young women to follow their dreams.
