The USSSA Pride women’s professional fastpitch softball team will make another stop in Evansville this summer during the Women’s Professional Fastpitch Exhibition Season. The Pride will take on the Texas Smoke on July 10th, 11th, and 12th at 7:30 p.m. (CST), at historic Bosse Field. The series is being held in conjunction with the USSSA Great Lakes Youth Softball Nationals being held at softball complexes all over the region. 220+ youth softball teams will be in town for the tournament, bringing thousands of visitors to the area for the week. This will be the third consecutive year that the Pride have played in Evansville with thousands of fans each night from around the country and within our region.
Penny Foore, Director of Operations for the Pride said that “the Evansville exhibition is the highlight of the USSSA Pride. Just as the women in A League of Their Own were trailblazers for women in sports, our league is gaining momentum as a trailblazer for women in professional sports. It truly means so much to our athletes to be able to play on the same field where it was filmed.”
Tickets are on-sale now through the Evansville Regional Sports Commission’s website, or at the Bosse Field ticket office. Daily admission is $10 for general admission and $20 for lower reserved seats, until Sunday, July 9. On the day of the games, prices increase to $15 for general admission and $25 for lower reserved. We will top off Monday’s night’s opening game with a fireworks display.
The USSSA Pride is an independently run professional softball team, star-studded with some of the best softball players in the country. This year’s team includes Olympians such as Ali Aguilar, Delaney Spaulding and Ali Carda and USA team member Jailyn Ford.
