Bomber Hall of Fame

ASA National Hall of Fame

The Clearwater Bombers, 10-Time ASA National Fast Pitch Champions, has the most members in the players’ category of the ASA National Hall of Fame. The amateur Softball Association established the Softball Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City to recognize and perpetuate the names of the greatest players the game has known. To date, eighteen Clearwater Bombers have been elected to the Hall of Fame. This is more than any others in the country.

In 1987, a Bomber Hall of Fame was started at Bomber Stadium. A row of signs is being erected along the sidewalk to honor and recognize these eighteen players. Each sign is sponsored by local business or individual with the revenues being used to support the bombers.
