The End of an Era!!

After 8 wonderful seasons, The Blast is not having a program next year. We may be back, But we want to thank all players and parents who made it possible. We will miss all of you.. Good luck and keep swinging for the fences.

Below are only a few of what I have found for tryouts…check the sports misc section of your Daily Newspapers as well….The Time Leader, Citizens Voice and Scranton Times all list tryouts when teams have them. I have included a few of the Binghamton Area teams announcements from a softball forum website.

Good Luck

TC Tremors Tryouts are as follows:
18 Gold & 18 Elite and the 16U team are August 6th and 8th at 5:30 and August 10th at 10am at the BAGSAI Softball Complex Rain or Shine. Over the years of playing the top teams in the nation at some of the nation’s best tournaments have made the Tremors a team that is well respected not only among our peers but the College Coaches that recruit at the events we attend. Past and present players have been recruited and played at schools in the Big East, Big Ten, MAAC, American East, Conference USA, Mid-American, SEC, Atlantic 10, Horizon, Big 12, Pac 12, Ivy, ACC, Patriot. Also the current Conference USA rookie of the year, Catlin Attfield, was recruited while she was playing on the 18 Elite team. The only difference between the two 18 teams is just the name, both are regarded as top teams. We are looking for players in the classes of 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 at all positions. As always if you feel you're a player that can play at this level please feel free to come.

14U and 12U team are August 7th and 9th at 5:30 and August 11th at 10am at the BAGSAI Softball Complex Rain or Shine. The 14U team will continue to play the competitive schedule it has been playing the last 3 years. They will play mostly 18U and 16U tournaments and a few 14U events. The schedule will not only challenge them but give them a chance to see where they stand against the competition. The 12U team is meant to give the girls their first taste of competitive softball and see what the travel softball world is all about while having fun and enjoying the game.

Please if you have any questions about tryouts or the Tremors please feel free to email
