Griffon Indoor is a one-day, indoor fastpitch tournament that takes place on the campus of Missouri Western State University in St Joseph, Mo. This facility is the perfect location for teams to compete during the winter, as the athletes will be playing inside on turf fields.
For the 14U division, the Griffon Indoor 2 tournament on Saturday, Feb. 8, will be the start of the spring season for 12 teams. Among these 12 teams, the Louisville Lady Sluggers, Kansas Outlaws and Regal Athletic are teams fans should keep an eye on in this tournament.
The Louisville Lady Sluggers are a 14A club coming off a first-place finish at the Old Man Winter tournament this past fall. During the tournament, the Louisville Lady Sluggers ended with a 6-1 record, while outscoring their opponents 45-23 through seven games. They will be looking to add another first place finish as they begin their spring season.
