Cumberland County Magic/Central Pennsylvania Krunch Merger
Harrisburg, Pa. – The Central Pennsylvania Krunch and Cumberland County Magic have announced they will merge to create a unique softball opportunity in the fall of 2018. Longtime head coach, Krunch Gold founder, and Krunch President Steve Mumma, along with Glenn Reinhardt, President of the rapidly expanding Cumberland County Magic, will join together in this endeavor.
Both organizations will operate independently during the summer 2018 season. Beginning in the fall of 2018 the Central Pa. Krunch and Cumberland County Magic will rebrand as the Pennsylvania Krunch. All existing Krunch and Magic teams will become part of the new organization.
Magic President Glenn Reinhardt said the following. “The merger is intended to strengthen the scope and quality of girls’ softball in Pennsylvania, and give more players a chance to play a higher level of softball. It will give the girls who want to play softball in college a clear path to do so.”
Krunch President Steve Mumma released the following statement. “For many years now the quality of softball in our state has been fractured and diluted with the inception of both small parent start-up programs and regional franchise for profit organizations. With this merger the Krunch and Magic seek to change this trend. As this new organization develops we will blend Krunch standardized budgeting practices, recruiting strategies, player development, and social media platforms with the organizational foundation, enthusiasm, and hunger to succeed of the Magic. As one organization, our players will have more choices for instruction and facilities. They will have a Gold Program that boasts an impressive forty Division 1 alumni just since 2012. Together we will expand upon best known practices and techniques that nurture and promote the development of successful student athletes.”
