Clearwater paying tribute to Bombers

Mayor George Cretekos and the Clearwater City Council have declared today Clearwater Bombers Day, and to celebrate, the Clearwater Historical Society is sponsoring the fifth annual reunion of the Bombers from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Historic Plumb House Museum, 1380 S Martin Luther King Jr. Ave. All of the former Clearwater Bomber players have been contacted and 20 to 30 of them are expected to attend to meet their fans, pose for pictures and sign autographs. The public is invited to come and meet these fast-pitch softball legends, many of whom are in the American Softball Association Hall of Fame in Oklahoma for winning 10 men's fast-pitch softball world championships during their playing years from the 1940s to the 1990s. The Lady Bombers, the current all-girls softball team, will join in the festivities. Admission and parking are free. For information, call Dean Robinson, Clearwater Bomber Day coordinator, at (727) 442-9011.
