The start of spring sport seasons always bring with them area tournaments, where hosts of teams gather to compete against one another … and spend numerous hours between games sitting on their tuchus between outings. One small town Texas softball team found a way to make the most of the downtime, staging an intricately choreographed dance video as a means of bonding and, yes, avoiding becoming stir crazy at an out-of-town competition.
As reported by Austin Fox affiliate KTBC, the Thrall softball team used some of the team’s copious off time (allegedly six hours!) during a tournament earlier in March to plan, execute and film a dance routine, snippets of which you can see in the video above.
“We’re not really known. We are a small 2A, coming from nowhere. Hopefully people will get a good laugh or even when they drive by they’ll say ‘oh yeah thrall, they made up that dance.” Thrall senior Chelsea Seggern told KTBC.
Whether the video does increase nationwide exposure for the town of 700 remains to be seen, but the team’s coach said he’s been thrilled by the team’s camaraderie throughout the experience.
“You don’t have to worry about any drama or anything. They come out to practice, they have fun,” Thrall softball coach Tyler Harwell told KTBC. “It’s good clean fun. If you can’t understand that, then just don’t watch it, very simple.”
