Approaching its 7th year, the Lone Star Classic continues to be a big success for Triple Crown Baseball, drawing 160 teams to compete at the Dallas Metroplex this coming weekend.
For over 20 years, Texas has been a baseball staple for TCS events. Texas Baseball event directors Gino Grasso and Adam Kline are excited to see an increase in teams year after year.
“This event always offers good competition. We have a few of the best 14u teams in the country playing this weekend,” said Kline. "The area's league schedules have kicked in, making it more of a challenge to secure fields, but we could tell the market was excited about getting into the Lone Star. We expect that interest to stay high for our other events to come."
More than 450 Texas teams and others around the Southwest kicked off their season at the Texas Season Opener in early March. In case of any inclement weather at the Season Opener, the Lone Star Classic has always served as a great insurance opportunity for teams to get back on the field and stay sharp, but that was not a concern this year.
We look forward to seeing a variety of 8u to 14u teams hit the diamond at the Lone Star Classic on April 6th-8th.
