MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The U.S. National Softball team is touring the country preparing for the World Championships later this summer and will kickoff its exhibition season this week in Morgantown.

Team USA will play an exhibition doubleheader Thursday evening at Hawley Field. The roster is made up of the best college players from across the country and will compete against an all-star team of college players from Pennsylvania.

“It’s been one of the most competitive years ever and they think it is one of the best,” says Dave Plevich with the Morgantown Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Thursday’s game will be the first one for Team USA since the roster was trimmed to 17 players. Team USA is also holding a youth clinic Wednesday for more than 150 girls from the Morgantown area.

General admission is $15 and VIP Tickets are $20. Tickets can be purchased at the gate. Gates open at 5 p.m. with the first pitch set for 6 p.m.

    This is very cool that Morgantown is hosting tonight considering TeamUSA will only play exhibitions at two locations this summer. Most of their games will be international.

    I also want to give a shout out to TeamUSA and WVU. My daughter has a 13 year old friend in NC who has cancer. The girl is a softball player and has played on teams with my daughter in the past. Her family posted on FB that WVU alumni worked with TeamUSA to bring her and her family up to Morgantown for the game. They provided accomodations, gifts, and special meet and greet time with the players of TeamUSA. Her family was very grateful to WVU. I am V\very proud to hear that WVU was involved in making this a very special event for my daughter's friend.
