Brand New! Clutch Hitters Community Outreach Program

Clutch Hitters led by John Barta and Jim Hanson have created a new outreach program as a way of giving back to our local communities. The plan is to incorporate 3 or 4 events a year that our players have a chance to sign up and volunteer time and care in making people's lives better. "I have always said that I think we have the greatest kids in our program. I think its past time that we go out and show that by giving back to our local people in need" Jim Hanson

Please feel free to contact John with any idea's that you may have.

Clutch Hitters Mission Statement

To provide young girls a high level of competitive softball at an affordable price, with quality coaches who can teach advanced softball skills, while letting the girls grow in a fun positive environment.  Clutch Hitters Club Softball program will be held to high ethics and will win championships.


Clutch Hitters Elite 14U, 16U and 18U Teams


Bloomington Fastpitch Association and Clutch Hitters are working together to offer high level/Elite teams at the 14U, 16U and 18U levels.

Clutch Hitters is looking for talented kids who have a great work ethic and a desire to improve.  Players will receive high level coaching, and usage of our outdoor/indoor hitting facilities.  Teams will be formed in the fall and stay together through the following summer season.  As a partner with BFA, Clutch Hitters teams will carry a percentage of Bloomington based kids.  The commitment level in the winter is minimal, allowing kids to play other sports, if they desire.  We are looking for kids who love softball and are self motivated.

We will practice and play all home games in Bloomington.

Clutch Hitters fees for a year are moderately priced for Fall and Summer combined.  Fees include: season pass to Clutch Hitters outdoor and indoor batting cages, uniform, coaching, Fall, Winter and Summer training, fall league play, fall state tournament, summer league play, 5 summer tournaments, with one or two of those out of town).  We offer Sunday night team training our indoor facility in Bloomington, along with discounted speed and agility classes in the Winter.
