Helotes Greater Little League All-Star chasing the grand slam

little league teamThe Greater Helotes Little League All Star major softball team hopes to complete their own “grand slam”.  The team became one step closer to their goal of reaching the Little League Softball World Series to be played in Portland, Oregon when they won the Texas West Little League Major Softball Championship.  For members of this team, this completed a 3-peat as they won the 9-10 year old State Championship two years in a row.

Now the team travels to Waco, Texas on Thursday, July 30 to start the Regional Tournament.  The team will play their first game on Friday, July 31 at 11am against Texas East.  The team will play the second game of pool play on Friday at 3pm when they face New Mexico.  Pool play continues Saturday, August 1 when the team faces Colorado at 3pm.  Sunday will be the final pool game and the team plays Louisiana at 3pm.

Monday, August 3 begins bracket play with semi-final action.  The team’s seeding determines their game time.  The first game starts at 5:30 pm and the second at 8pm.

The championship game will be played on Wednesday, August 5 at 4pm.  The winner will advance to the World Series in Portland, Oregon.

So now to meet the team.
