For Immediate Release
May 12, 2015

NASHVILLE – Global Force Wrestling is preparing to two-step through Texas – for an appearance in May and three shows in September as part of the “GFW Grand Slam Tour.”

GFW CEO and founder Jeff Jarrett and newly announced GFW Legend “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan will take part in the traditional first pitch on May 28 at Dell Diamond prior to the game between the Round Rock Express (Texas Rangers-Triple A) and visiting El Paso. They also will be meeting fans and signing autographs. During the game tickets will go on sale for the GFW show on Sept. 27 in Round Rock.

The other events in Texas are scheduled for Sept. 25 in Corpus Christi (Whataburger Field/Corpus Christi Hooks/Houston Astros-Double-A) and Sept. 26 in San Antonio (Wolff Stadium/San Antonio Missions/San Diego Padres-Double-A). Those tickets will go on sale at a later date.

The Round Rock-El Paso game will be televised on CBS Sports Network as the first of the new MiLB Game of the Week. Jarrett will be in the broadcast booth to promote the GFW Grand Slam Tour, which begins on June 12 in Jackson, Tennessee, and will include trips to Virginia, Florida, Iowa and California.

“The Grand Slam Tour has built a lot of momentum,” said Jarrett, who already has made several appearances to throw out the first pitch at minor-league stadiums that plan to host GFW events. “Texas has a long and storied history with professional wrestling, and we’re thrilled with the response of the ballparks and the fans in the Lone Star State.”

“We’re excited to bring Global Force Wrestling to Texas,” Ryan Sanders Baseball and Entertainment COO J.J. Gottsch said.”Minor-league baseball is based on affordable, fan-friendly family entertainment, and we believe GFW fits in well with that mission.”

Dates for the GFW Grand Slam Tour are available on globalforcewrestling.com, and more will be added in the coming weeks.
