Welcome to the home of the Originals-Koop 18A Fastpitch Softball TEAM....and a proud member of the Originals Fastpitch Softball Club. Lead by Head Coach James Koop, this TEAM is comprised of young ladies from all around the Kansas City Metropolitan area. All players were given the opportunity as a result of the performance, both on and off the field, charitable contributions and community service, as well as  their desire to play fastpitch softball at the college level... 

The 2012-2013 season was a great success as the Originals-Koop 16A TEAM. As a first year 16A squad, the O's finished the season with a 52-22-8 record and finished #4 in the final (week 31) ASA 16A National rankings...the O's were the #1 TEAM in the country for several weeks during the season. The following is the club website in a midsummer news update;


"#1 and On a Roll" - Originals - Koop (16U"A")
O's Koop just completed a 7-0 run at ASA Memorial Day before being rained out and is currently the #1 ASA 16A team in the country. The O's scored 54 runs while only giving up 8.  The team went on to the ASA 16U-A Qualifier in Wichita and came through the losers bracket to win the the tournament and secure their berth at the 16A ASA/USA Nationals in San Jose,  California. Coach Koop recently commented that he's planning to move the team up to 18U... always raising the bar... an Originals tradition!
