The 200 Club

The 200 Club – Elite Group Has Made Memories of 60 years.

One of the greatest accomplishments a fast pitch softball player can say is that he played for the Clearwater Bombers. From 1940 – 2000, just over 200 men have worn the famous red, white, and blue of the Bombers. A list has been compiled of those players who have brought so many great memories to fans everywhere fast pitch is played.

These men came from throughout the world despite a local flavor each team. They came in different sizes, ages, and colors. One played at the age of 14 while another competed at 61.

In addition to many team honors these players brought to the Bombers, individual awards came to quite a few. Many on this list earned ASA All – American status, ISC All-World plaques, several played on the US Pan-Am team, many won All-Southern Regional awards, MVP’s and Outstanding Pitcher trophies in various tournaments, league all-star awards and The Bobby Forbes team MVP awards. Twenty-three are in the ASA Hall of Fame, one is All- World representing his profession and community, and one is in the Florida Sports Hall of Fame.

Many of these men no longer live in the Clearwater area and several are deceased. Fans who know current addresses, emails or phone numbers of those on the list and those not, contact the Bomber office at 727-442-6981 or utilize the contact sheet on our website.
