Top Select Softball Team

The  Texas Travelers organization has been around since 1995 started by John Wardlow.  His desire was to create an environment that provides players the opportunity to play softball at the next level both in competitive play and collegiality.  In 2015 James Schaefer took over the organization providing recruiting opportunities for all of Texas Travelers Players.  The organization is also set up to award scholarships for players who complete their time with the Travelers at the 18u level. 


Texas Travelers will compete in some of the most prestigious events in the country, and have been one of  the most talked about select softball teams in the United States.  The Travelers have teams in all age levels to help promote the game of softball.

Each player understands their role as a team member, but more importantly what it means to be the ultimate team player.  Filled with talent, and numerous awards and championships; the Texas Travelers have put together teams which promotes the game of fast-pitch softball while creating an environment in which players can reach their full potential and achieve the self-confidence and positive self-esteem necessary to be successful both on and off the field.  

The Texas Travelers organization exists for the specific purpose of developing a competitive youth fast-pitch softball program whose goals are to develop players capable of competing at the highest levels in the country with the demonstrated skills necessary to earn a college scholarship.


Our dedicated coaches and volunteer staff facilitate our athlete’s growth by conducting challenging practices and scheduling the highest level of competitive activity available. However, reaching these goals must be accomplished within the proper framework by instilling character, self-esteem, confidence and sportsmanship with the young athlete.


Achievement of these lofty and worthwhile objectives within the appropriate environment can only be reached through the mature behavior and exemplary conduct of the coaches and parents of the Club. Their relationship with the players must be of the highest ethical and moral standards and be based upon concern and just principles that ensure equitable treatment will prevail in all circumstances.

An aggressive desire for victory combined with the procedural and graduated development of softball skills through exceptional coaching and advanced training techniques is of paramount importance. Nevertheless, everyone should realize that, fast-pitch softball is only a game and is the forum we use to help our athletes mature into responsible adults.

Small in stature but rich in nature, the Travelers organization have helped over 185 girls play at the collegiate level.
