The Texas Season Opener is a 'Stay to Play' event.
This event has a 15-year history of being the true testing ground for teams in Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana as they shake off the rust from wintertime and start to get serious about the year to come. Triple Crown has established relationships with field complexes, umpire groups and well-located hotels to make this an easy "yes" for teams ready to make a mark in their age group.
Schedules will be posted on Tuesday, March 2nd by 9pm CST
