Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. However, for the Lady Longhorns, this diamond is composed of 4 bases, grass, and a lot of dirt. Herrman and Herrman, P.L.L.C., is proud to sponsor the Lady Longhorns softball team this season as they take on other teams both girls and boys from across the area. The team, which consists of girls ages 5-6, will have begun training for the season and have already proven themselves to be quite the competitor.
Led by Coach Erika Jimenez, the select baseball team is comprised of young girls who are devoted and thrilled to be playing softball. As one mother put it, “The season never ends, but they love it”. They practice Monday through Friday at local batting cages and baseball fields with their league games on Mondays and tournaments every weekend. They participate on a rotating schedule playing at home one weekend and away the next. On weekends when there are no scheduled games, the girls keep themselves busy by organizing fundraisers and getting sponsorships to support their team and travel expenses. These young athletes are incredibly talented and are currently getting ready to go to the Little League World Series in Oklahoma this upcoming July. Congratulations Lady Longhorns, your hard work, and dedication are sure to pay off.
Games are free to the public and can be seen Mondays at the Greenwood Complex starting at 6pm. For more information on events, times and locations of certain games or if you’re interested in donating to the team contact them through their Facebook page. You can catch them on television for the Little League World Series in Oklahoma on July 12th-19th.
Good luck Lady Longhorns, we’re rooting for you!
