USF Bulls softball coach Ken Eriksen is moonlighting as the head coach of the U.S. national fast-pitch softball team this year, and that team will be coming to Tampa in two weeks, along with the U.S. junior national team, which features Bulls shortstop Kourtney Salvarola.
Eriksen's team and its junior counterpart will participate in a doubleheader at 6 p.m. on June 25 at Plant City Stadium, with free autograph sessions after the games. Eriksen's national team is preparing for the World Cup of Softball, which is in Oklahoma City on July 21-25. Salvarola and the U.S. junior national team will compete in the Junior Women's World Championship in Cape Town, South Africa from Dec. 8-17.
