Recently we learned one of our own former Bombers was fighting for her life. Taylor Platt wasn’t feeling well and thinking it was COVID went to get checked out, after many tests they found she suffered from AML which is a form of Leukemia Cancer in her blood. She has been fighting a strong battle against this and we recently learned the Doctors feel with her low cancer cell count that she is in remission. She will be starting chemo soon and will be waiting for a stem cell transplant. Our Bomber teams banded together and collected $1750 to help Taylor and her family out with their growing medical bills. Never give up Taylor, BOMBER STRONG!!!

The Clearwater Lady Bombers partnered with E-Star Roofing of Clearwater to sponsor 2 $5,000 scholarships with Clearwater For Youth. The recipients were presented their scholarships at Baycare Ballpark by Scott Cole, owner of E-Star, and Jerry King, President of the Bombers. This was a first for Clearwater For Youth where a youth group gave back and we will continue to do this going forward as we want to help our community and give someone else a chance to succeed in life.
Karen Aungst Grant
For the 3rd year in a row the Clearwater Lady Bombers were awarded the Karen Aungst Grant to provide training for our coaches. The first year we received the award we sent our coaches to USF to attend the Art of Coaching seminar with USA Olympic coach Ken Eriksen along with several other top NCAA coaches from UCLA, Boston University, and USF. Last year with the COVID shutdown we didn’t have to many opportunities so we created one by bringing in the UICs for USA and PGF softball to give our coaches a rules clinic and game management clinic. We continue to provide opportunities like this for our coaches to make sure we have the best for our players not just on the field but off, both physical and mental. We strive for excellence and that starts with our coaches.
Toys for Tots – Bomber Style
Every year for the last 10 years the Clearwater Lady Bombers adopt kids that are in foster care, group homes, etc. and collect Christmas presents for these less fortunate kids. For the last several years we have partnered with Healthy Families of Pinellas to adopt kids and provide them with a good Christmas. In 2019 we adopted 54 kids and with COVID creating hard times for everyone we wanted to go big in 2020 and requested 70 kids to adopt. We did one better and adopted 77 kids for Christmas 2020. All 11 teams received 7 kids and we bought everything on all 77 kids wish list. We gathered together at the Holiday Inn Express in Feathersound where our players and parents wrapped the presents, enjoyed dinner from Mike’s Pizza, and waited for the social workers to arrive to deliver the presents. For 2021 who knows what our goal will be 80, 90, or maybe 100?
