The 2018 season has seen the Firecrackers Gale team compile a record of 40 wins, 8 losses and 2 ties. Competing in all 18U tournaments except one, and going undefeated in 3 of the the 9 tournaments to start the season. Firecrackers Gale has their eyes focused on making noise in their upcoming out of state schedule. The month of June will have the Firecrackers on a heavy travel schedule that will take them to five different out of state tournaments and then Nationals.
Head Coach Randy Gale is excited to see how his team will compete in 16's Nationally. "They have seen the best of the best in Colorado to try and get ready for what we will see out of state. I know we will see some great pitching and hitting when we travel."
First up for the Firecrackers, will be earning a PGF bid in New Mexico. Notoriously, this has been difficult for Colorado teams to advance very far in this qualifier. Next, they will be off to California to compete at Triple Crown's Zoom into June. Their schedule will be challenging as they will see a few of the top 16U teams in the Nation (Cal Breeze Warren, and Cal Cruisers Gold Garcia, So Cal 3D, San Jose Sting, and So Cal Choppers). The following week it's off to Kansas for the USA Elite Select Top Gun Invitational. The competition again will be some of the top in the Nation. Once finished with Kansas, they will come home and prepare for the Colorado Fireworks where the Firecrackers Gale will be in the Supplemental Power Pool. Trying to follow up last years top 5 finish in the Sparkler at 14's, they look to make an impact in 16's this year.
With June coming to an end, The Firecrackers will continue their travel out of state in July. As they head out to Atlanta for the Atlanta Legacy Showcase. From there they will head to Nationals on the West Coast. While trying to make a name for themselves on a National level, we wish them the best and are proud of the way they have represented Colorado softball.
