Lubbock Sports is excited to host the 2014 PONY Fast Pitch World Series. The opening ceremonies for the event will take place on Tuesday, July 15, at 6 p.m. at the Lubbock Youth Sports Complex, located at FM 1585 and Milwaukee Avenue.


Approximately 175 teams from multiple states will compete in the tournament. Each team will have about 22 participants as well as 30 to 40 fans in attendance.

The softball tournament will officially kick-off on Wednesday, July 16 at 8 a.m. and will conclude on Saturday, July 19 with the championship games in each age group. Teams competing in the tournament will range in age from 6 and under to 23 and under in the South Zone of the PONY League.

“Every team here will be a champion from somewhere,” Bobby Drum, PONY Zone director and 2014 PONY Fast Pitch World Series tournament director, said. “Upon leaving Lubbock, we will have a World Champion in each age group. The hope is that everyone will leave Lubbock with a positive experience.”

Drum said Lubbock was chosen to host the 2014 PONY Fast Pitch World Series based on the city’s reputation as a great venue for sports and the support the events receive from the Lubbock Sports team.

Lubbock Sports is anticipating about $2.7 million in economic impact to the local economy. The softball tournament is estimated to book more than 8,500 room nights.

The 2014 PONY Fast Pitch World Series is free to the public. For more information about the tournament, contact Bobby Drum at bwdlt@aol.com.
