Hitting on Thursday 12/29 is now back to our regular time from 7:00 - 8:00 at Sports Enhancement. Sorry for all the changes but a team that goes at 6:00 has not been very consistent and not treating their prime time very well. Please make sure you bring $5.00.

Hitting - 12/22 and 12/29 - 6:00

Hitting practice at Sports Enhancement Center in Bloomington on Thursday 12/22/2011 and 12/29/2011 will be from 6:00 - 7:00 as we got an earlier time.  Bring $5.00 and smiling faces.

8/29--Laura Bonds - SR - Warrensburg-Latham H.S. (SS-OF) - 2011 Travel Team  ** Midwest Energy ** Lincolnland CC Recruit

The TWIN CITY FUSION 18u (formerly BNGSA Fusion) has roster openings for the 2012 summer season.  Looking for TWO dedicated second yr 18 players who have not turned 19 as of 1/1/2012.

We have significant playing time at corner IF and OF positions.  Utility type player a big plus. The Fusion just finished in the top 50 at the ASA/USA National Tourney.  You would be joining a group of experienced players who treat each other with respect.

We will be playing 5-6 tournaments starting second weekend in June and will end the season at the ASA state tourney. Cost to be determined but will require a non refundable deposit of $150 if you want to reserve.  Tryout may not be necessary if you have played ASA 18u A level travel ball or equivalent.  This team would be ideal for college players returning from their first year of college or are heading to college in the fall of 2012.

Please contact Kent Warner at 309-530-4519 voice or text if you are interested.

7/24: Summer 2012 Fusion - Players Needed

The Fusion will undego a few changes as we enter our EIGHTH season of play during the summer of 2012.  We will become an independent travel team registered with the ASA and will carry a roster of 12-14 players. 

We will play 5-6 tournaments starting June 9th and will end the season after the 18U-A State Tournament the weekend of July 14th.  We will not be playing in any college exposure tournaments and may play one out of state tournament. 

After Nationals next week (Aug 1-7), we will  know how many openings we will have for the 2012 squad. It is likely we will be adding 3-4 players. We know a lot of teams and players so a tryout may not be necessary. All we would ask for is a non refundable deposit to hold your spot and your committment.


If you are interested in becoming a member of the Fusion, please send your high school and travel team experience to Coach Warner at bngsafusion@gmail.com or call/text 309-530-4519. 

I would like to thank the BNGSA for providing the Fusion an opportunity to play in their organization for seven years.  It has been a great journey and we have been able to navigate around a lot of obstacles on the way.  We started from scratch, worked our way from the B level all the way to a top "A" level travel team in the State of Illinois.  For various reasons it makes sense for us to become an independent travel team for 2012.  We have always been committed to winning and losing with class. Most of all, we have been able to develop the girls into to some pretty darn good softball players.  Many are going to play in college at various levels.  We will continue this legacy in 2012 and maybe beyond if 23U softball offers us an opportunity to move up in 2013.
