The first Tampa Mustang team was formed the summer of 1981 when we became aware that counties across Florida formed and supported travel teams out of their respective recreational leagues to play competitive ball after their recreational season ended.
Our county Leaguerette and Little League programs did not support such a program. Our first team was slowpitch formed with players from the North Tampa Leaguerettes.
The Tampa Mustangs were the first travel ball team on the West Coast of Florida. The interest was there and our “team” grew to the organization we are today with representation from all over Florida.
Over the past 35 seasons, Mustang teams have represented Florida in numerous National Championship Tournaments. We have won at least one national title in each age group from 10U to 18U allowing us to gain recognition on a national level. The following Championships were accomplished since 1995 when the Mustangs converted to fastpitch. These championships include all softball organizations (ASA, PGF, USSSA, ISF, AAU, NSA, Pony, ISA).
World Fastpitch Championship
USA Softball JO Cup
Alliance Fastpitch Championship
