Texas Collegiate League Expands To Texarkana; Community contest to name new team


Clutch Entertainment Group announced that their second sports franchise in the Texas Collegiate League will call George Dobson Field at Spring Lake Park their new home in Texarkana. This new minor league experience summer baseball expansion team will take the field this summer.

In an effort to capture the local excitement for this new team, there will be a “Name the Team Contest.” Community members can visit www.texarkanabaseball.com to provide their suggestion for the team name.

The opportunity to submit ideas will continue through election day (November 8th). At that point the 5 finalists will be released for a community wide vote. The community can vote online (and often) through November 21st, as the focus will shift from the Washington Election to Texarkana Baseball. The winning name will be announced later in November with the unveiling of the team logo, uniforms and pro shop gear.

The team is also introducing the first ever 100% Money Back FUN Guarantee for its early season ticket holders. This membership offer will be available for a limited time and include special recognition on Opening Day with a commemorative team gift, and team voting rights on a variety of fun topics. Members will also receive 50% Off KidZ Zone Wristbands at the ballpark, 10% Off Pre-Ordered Team Gear and many other benefits. The FUN Guarantee is 100% Money Back Guaranteed, no questions asked if our members didn’t have FUN at the ballpark (members must attend at least 50% of all home games to qualify for refund).

“We believe we have created the FIRST FUN Guarantee in sports,” said Uri Geva, Team President. “Fans will have the opportunity to come enjoy non-stop entertainment and baseball for just $9 per month. We’ve already received a huge response from fans who want to purchase these season memberships thanks to this amazing value.“

“We couldn’t be more excited to become a huge part of the Texarkana community,” said Geva. “We have quickly fallen in love with this community and Historic George Dobson Field and can’t wait to deliver our unique form of baseball and entertainment!”
