Bombers Fastpitch to Add Aces Express Fastpitch Softball Teams

Merger of Two Texas Organizations to Be Effective August 10, 2020

New Braunfels, Texas (January 30, 202

0) – Bombers Fastpitch has announced the addition of

the Aces Express (“AE”) Fastpitch program and teams in an integration that will be effective

August 10, 2020 to allow the Aces Express teams to complete the 2020 Spring/Summer season

under the “Aces Express” name.

All 12 Aces Express teams, ranging in age divisions from 8U to 18U and based in the Houston

area, will then transition into the Bombers Fastpitch brand after that date. The Bombers

Fastpitch organization currently has 110 teams in 15 states across the country with the

program’s headquarters located in New Braunfels, Texas.

As part of the addition of the Aces Express teams, David McCorkle—the current Program

Director and Recruiting Coordinator of AE—will assume the position of Vice President, Softball

Operations and Head Coach of the Texas Bombers 16U Gold team for the 2021 playing season.

“Our addition of David McCorkle, his coaches and the amazing players and parents associated

with the Aces Express, is an incredible addition and one that helps push our Bomber Fastpitch

program to another level,” Scott Smith, the President of Bombers Fastpitch, said.

“Anytime you add talent to your mix, it’s a big day, but when you add this much it an extreme

game-changer and one we could not be more excited about,” Smith continued. “David and his

coaches have done an incredible job with that program and to now be able to share our

systems and bring together so many like-minded people will certainly be a big deal going

forward. Our goals at Bombers Fastpitch have been to surround our players and coaches with

the best people, best technology and best systems in the game. This is a huge step in that

direction and we can’t wait to get the ball rolling.”

McCorkle added: “We are excited to be taking our program and joining forces with the Bombers

organization. We feel like we built something special with AE and had a great 10-plus years. We

purposely built a small, intimate program with a very tight-knit group of coaches and teams.

Now it’s time to take what we have built and merge it with something bigger. The Bombers and

Aces Express have been very close over the last 10 years and are built on a lot of the same


The Aces Express leader explained his reasons for the merger.

“It’s a perfect match at this point in time and we are excited to bring our entire coaching staff,

teams and players to the Bombers organization,” McCorkle continued. “We bring a very

talented group of teams, players and an entire coaching staff. Our coaching staff brings a ton of

experience and passion for getting the best out of teams and kids and giving them the best

chance to be successful. We are excited to make one last summer run as Aces Express, then we

will hang the AE hat up with a ton of pride of all that we accomplished. I am excited for our

transition in August and the future with the Bombers!”
