Bluewave News!!
 
 
Exciting announcement for the Blue Wave...starting with the 2018-2019 season, we will be known as the Batbusters, Chicago! 
 
The Batbusters from Orange County, California were founded in 1979 and have won over 30 National Championships, at least one at every age level. Batbuster players have earned over 500 college scholarships, 80% of those scholarships "Full Rides" and 90% at least 70% of the total cost. Check out their website http://www.batbusters.org/ to see our Chicago organization listed.
 
This is an incredible opportunity for the Blue Wave, making this move will allow us to be part of the oldest and unquestionably, the most successful travel softball program in the country. Our affiliation with the Batbusters was considered for months and resulted in many conversations with Mike Stith, the president.  As part of their commitment to us, Mike and his Batbuster staff will be coming out next year to assist with tryouts and answer any questions about our new teams. They'll also come Fall of 2018 to train our coaches and players the Batbuster way.  We plan to incorporate those techniques and practice plans into our winter workouts.   We're very excited about our future – we’ll have the same amenities, number of teams, President and Board of Directors, but now we’ll have a nationally recognized Batbuster name.

2017-2018 Managers and team needs

We are happy to announce next year Tom Rogers will be our 10u manager for the 2018-2019 season.  Tryouts will be in August, for more information please feel free to contact Tom @ Tommy-boy7@comcast.net or 708-268-8611

Tom Rogers comes from a baseball background where he played throughout his college years. After school, Tom went back to his roots in his home town of Berkeley and helped coach high school baseball players for a couple years. After getting married and having children, Tom got involved in coaching softball for 8’s, 9’s and 10s and became the girls softball president for the O.T.Y.A. Baseball/Softball Organization out of Chicago Heights, IL. Tom went on to run the Crete Crush 98’s softball team with much team success at the 10s and 12s. Tom also coached withthe Crown Point Bulldogs 98’s, same team that later went on to the Beverly Bandits. Recently, Tom has coached for the Mizuno Hawks 18s. Tom has had much success in the process of helping his players get to the next level throughout their recruitment process. In total, Tom has coached softball for the past 13 years.Tom’s coaching philosophy is very simple. If you practice like a champion you will play like a champion. No matter if your 8 or 18, every day you can learn something knew to master your game. Softball is a life lesson, if you are taught earlier on that hard work pays off then later in life as an adult, you will be ahead of the game. Fundamentals, fundamentals and more fundamentals is the key to softball success. Tom’s plan movingforward with the Chicago Batbusters starting in the fall of 2018 will be bringing in college softball players as assistant coaches helping him with coaching of his team. The team will either consist of all U9’s or a combination of U9s and U10s.  Tom is married to Jennifer Rogers and has 4 children together.
