As tensions build toward the end of TC/USA Nationals next week in Austin, Texas, the finals of both the 16u Open and 18u Gold divisions are sure to bring the tournament to a dramatic conclusion. For those unable to attend the championship matchups at Concordia University of Texas, Triple Crown Sports has partnered with ESPN3 to bring you the contests live.
Texas native Brett Dolan will have the call alongside Amanda Freed Katchka. The 16 Open championship is slated for a 3:30 p.m. CT first pitch. Last year in New York City, the Louisville Stunners 99 knocked off the Firecrackers-Lutterloh, 6-3.

In the 18u Gold a year ago, the Texas Blaze Gold-Slimp navigated through a difficult list of teams, including two of the top 10 18u clubs in the nation in Firecrackers-Rico and Texas Sudden Impact Gold-Dutton. A 5-3 margin in the final against Louisville Lady Sluggers gave the Blaze the 2016 title. The 2017 title game is set for 6 p.m. CT.
