Batbusters Q & A Skills Evaluation Camp


Playing travel softball with the Batbusters is a serious commitment.  Our exposure teams will play a national schedule: Scenic City Fall Chattanooga, Diamond9 Sun Classic in Florida, Showcase #1, DeMarini Invitational O’Fallon, Southern Force Fall Showcase Georgia, Colorado IDT, Sparkler Power Pools and PGF Huntington Beach.  Details on which teams will be attending each tournament will be provided at tryouts. 
Batbusters Q & A Skills Evaluation Camp 

For players interested in learning more about the Chicago Batbusters program, we will be running Sunday camps on May 5th and May 19th. The purpose is mostly instructional, but also to identify potential athletes for next year’s college exposure teams for the 2018-2019 season.

Batbusters tryouts will be held after PGF Nationals in August, Mike Stith and his staff will be there to assist and answer any questions.  The goal of the camps is to provide prospective players and their families, an opportunity to get a feel for the Batbusters prior to tryouts.

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.
