Electric City Bombers 14U Softball Takes USSSA Crown

The Electric City Bombers 14U Red softball team had already set program history earlier this summer and they weren't about to slow down when they reached the national stage.

The squad, which has played together for over a year with a total record of 75-8-1, qualified for the USSSA World Series in Salisbury, Maryland last fall and took the ultimate title last week.

After opening pool play at 2-1 on Thursday, the Bombers won their first two games in the elimination bracket round. A loss to Pennsylvania-based team Silver Creek pushed the Bombers into the losers bracket and earned them an 8 am. Sunday-morning start.

Ultimately, the Bombers battled back through a five day, including beating the ultimate runner-up twice, en route to the championship.

The Bombers - a team made up of 13 girls from all over the Capital District - played a total of 13 games in four days, going up against teams from 10 different states to secure a World Series title.
