NPF Series Headed to Round Rock, TX

By:

ROUND ROCK, Texas - The Ryan Sanders Showdown National Pro Fastpitch Softball Series will be held Aug. 12-15 at The Dell Diamond in Round Rock, Texas. Hosted by Ryan Sanders Baseball, the series features two professional teams: the Chicago Bandits and the USSSA Florida Pride.

The teams will play five games in the four-day period with single games at 7 p.m. CDT Thursday, Aug. 12, and Friday, Aug. 13, a doubleheader at 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 14, and a single game at 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 15.

Reserved tickets are $10 per game with general admission tickets for $5 per game. Express full-season and Friday Fireworks ticket holders have first opportunity to purchase their seats for the event April 20-30. Tickets go on sale to the general public May 1. Regular Express discounts apply for seniors, military and kids. Groups of 20 or more also receive a discounted rate.

Several high-profile players will participate in the event, including Kelly Kretschman (2004 Olympic gold medalist; 2008 Olympic silver medalist), Monica Abbott (2008 Olympic silver medalist), Caitlin Lowe (2008 Olympic silver medalist), Jessica Mendoz (2000, 2004 Olympic gold medalist; 2008 Olympic silver medalist), Lauren Lappin (2008 Olympic silver medalist), Natasha Watley (2000, 2004 Olympic gold medalist; 2008 Olympic silver medalist) and Jennie Finch (2000, 2004 Olympic gold medalist; 2008 Olympic silver medalist).

Kretschman, Abbott, Lowe, Mendoza, Lappin and Watley all play for the USSSA Pride, while Finch plays for the Chicago Bandits. Abbott, Lowe, Mendoza, Lappin, Watley and Finch are current Team USA members. Katie Burkhart, a member of the USSSA Florida Pride, led Arizona State to victory in the 2008 Women's College World Series and was named the event's most valuable player.

Part of the proceeds from the event will go to support local softball groups, teams and leagues. There also will be a "Home Runs for Hunger" charity effort to support the Capital Area Food Bank. Fans will be able to donate two canned goods items for $2 off any ticket to the series. Rudy's and Mighty Fine will have a home run hitting contest with their employees following the Sunday game; money and food items will be collected during that event for donation.

Ryan Sanders Baseball and members of the Chicago Bandits will host softball clinics in conjunction with the event. Clinics run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Aug. 12-14 and are for children ages 6 and up. Cost for the four-day clinic is $155; clinic participants also receive a T-shirt, a camp photo and a voucher for a free reserved ticket to each game. More information on the clinics will be made available on www.RoundRockExpress.com.
