June 9, 2013
The Bridgeport Bombers (10s) made history this weekend winning their 3rd consecutive tourney winning the HoChunk June Slamfest Championship 11-8.
The team had no trouble in pool play going 3-0 and run-ruling 2 teams to get the number 1 seed.
The team never wavered and hit the ball all over the field, stole bases, and made defensive gems on the field to win the championship!
The coaches could not hold in their happiness!!
The team continues to prove they are one of the top teams in the state of Illinois! The team even was blessed by the appearance of Bomber greats Shimmy and Haynes, who said "These kids are the real deal!!"
Check the schedule, grab your chair and cooler and come out and watch THE greatest show on DIRT!!
Congratulations to the team, coaches and parents on a great win!
Bombers 13s Win Tom Pell Memorial!!
May 27, 2013
The Bombers 13s have been so close to making the semis or getting knocked out in the semis to their ultimate goal of winning a championship. Well it all came togeather on Monday as the 13s win their first championship by beating Grizzlies Baseball 5-1 in the championship game at the HoChunk Tom Pell Memorial.
The Bombers held their breath in pool play going 2-1 and taking the 4 seed by 1 run. In the semis, the Bombers faced the Midwest Rangers the number 1 seed. If you saw the 2 teams next to each other you would say we have no chance. However, you dont play with just size but size of the kids hearts. The Bombers stuck togeather and fought to the end to beat the Rangers 8-7.
The semi's and Championship game were some very good baseball games. Come out and see the 13s play, they are a fun and exciting team.
Congrats to Manager Calderon, Coaches Ramundo and Loftus. Keep up the great work!!
NOT AGAIN! Bombers 10s Win Tom Pell Memorial!!
May 27, 2013
The Bomber 10s continue their journey at making history, winning their 2nd tournament in a row by taking the HoChunk Tom Pell Memorial! After suffering a tough loss to the Indiana Playmakers in pool play they battled back for the 2 seed and beat Morris Baseball to advance to the championship.
The championship game was a hard fought battle with the Naperville Renegades as the crowd and intensity of the game was out of control. The Bridgeport Bombers Manager had enough of the umpire performance and was ejected after giving his colorful evaluation of the umpire calls. The team bonded and the coaches stepped up to rally from a 3-run deficit to win the championship 7-6.
Was a great team victory!! Congratualtions to the team as well as the great coaching staff of LoCoco, Mosqueda, Delaurentiis and Krol!!
The Bombers now have a record of 21 wins and 5 losses, well on their way to record books!
Bombers 12s Bring Home Crystal For MOM!!
May 12, 2013
To honor their mothers, the Bridgeport Bombers ELITE 12s won the Mothers Day Classic at Hochunk 10-6 over Oak Forest Blue Demons and brought home the crystal. The team played well all weekend with great hitting and pitching. However, the credit needs to go to the ultra-analytic coaching staff lead by Manager Billy Woods and coaches Moreno and Walker. They pulled off some of the most strategic wins since Ozzie Guillen guided the Whitesox to the World Series championship. Great job Coaches!!!
Bombers 10s Take Champaign Championship!!
May 5, 2013
The Bridgeport Bombers (10s) took the crystal home following an 8-1 victory over Champaign Tribe in the Championship game in the GamedayUSA Champaign Spring Swing Tournament. The team played Bomber baseball with great defense and even better pitching allowing only 2 runs in the semis and championship. The team displayed some old school Bomber play by stealing every base possible and taking an extra base when they could.
Many articles and talk have been read and heard about this team and continue to improve every game. This is an exciting team to watch and play the game the right way! Everyone and I mean everyone contributed in some matter.
Will this team break the 2006 record of 53 wins or can they shatter the record 8 trophy season? Check the calender, get your chair and cooler and come watch history. The Bridgeport "mis hijos" Bombers are for real!!
Bridgeport Bombers Banquet a BLAST!!!
The Bombers Banquet was a huge success!! We had a record crowd of over 500 parents, families and players attend. The introductions were long as we had to announce a record 125 players (See picture above. Needed to take panoramic to fit everyone in). The slide show was futuristic!! Major announcements were not made at the banquet but are planned to be disbursed throughout an exciting season as we continue to strive to make the Bomber experience one of a kind. Many teams try to copy our banquet or website but their will always be only one Bridgeport Bombers Experience! The best is yet to come!!!

Ricardo Ramirez Signs with UIC
Congrats to Ricardo Ramirez!! Bridgeport Bombers Hall of Famer Ricardo Ramirez has signed to play baseball at University of Illinois at Chicago(UIC).
The Bridgeport Bombers family wishes Ricardo the best of luck. President Shimmy will never forget all the great memories he has of Ricardo and looks forward to watching him play at UIC right in our back yard!! Just remember to keep in touch. The President would also like to thank you for your loyalty over the years as many clubs tried to recruit you.
Ricardo is just another example of a player who stayed with the Bridgeport Bombers Program and developed over the years into a D1 baseball player. If you do some research you will find that it is easier to get into Harvard than it is to play D1 baseball.
