CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Young girls from the “Rage T-Ball League” are ready to show off their skills on the national level but first, they need help from the community.

The young athletes are excited to take part in this journey, but they can't do it alone.

Coaches say they have worked and practiced very hard to get to this point.

When these star athletes step on the field, they know that it's time to hustle.

Just recently the girls have competed in the "Protect Our Nations Youth" regional tournament.

Their hard work and dedication to the game led the team to an undefeated season!

The team qualified to enter the tournament's World Series in Louisiana.

Coaches add that some of these girls have never played softball before and find it remarkable that they have learned so much in so little time.

“Hitting the ball catching making some outs,” says team member Ariana Cantu.

“I learned how to catch the ball,” says Barbie Waddill.

These young athletes say practice is very important and they were able to share what they have learned on the field.

“I learn how to catch better and hit better,” says Lyanna Casas.

Traveling, fees and equipment can get expensive.

The team is having a fundraiser at the Sparkling City League Field
which is located at 3901 Greenwood Drive.

The fundraiser will begin at 10 am on July 13th, 2019.

They say they are confident in raising funds and coming home as champions.

“Anything from the community can help again it’s not only here we talked about mind, body, and soul, it’s giving back to the community and we’re hoping to bring back a championship for the City of Corpus,” says Assistant Coach Bill Waddill.
