The Charles City Bombers are taking the game of softball to the next competitive level for girls looking to expand their softball talents.

This past spring the Charles City 10u (age 10 and under), coached by Sammy Gintz Jr. and Tyler Reams, went to the next level in competition.

“To help the girls get better we needed to push them, which has made them stronger,” explained Gintz.

The Bombers traveled to Iowa City for two USSSA tournaments where they walked away with second-place and ninth-place showings. They also competed in two USSSA events in Waterloo where they took first place in both tournaments.

The team also competed in two local tournaments – one in Osage where they took first and another tournament in Waverly where they took third. The girls ended their season placing eighth in the state in USSSA based on their Power Ranking.

The Bombers are looking to add more teams with their upcoming tryouts on July 15 at 6:30 p.m. at Sportsman Park. They are having tryouts for 8u, 10u, 11u, and 14u. Girls from outside of Charles City are also welcome to come try out.

“We just want to give as many girls the opportunity to play travel ball, expand their ability to play and their love for the game,” said Jessica Gintz.

Anyone interested in trying out can contact Jessica Gintz at 641-257-8839 or The teams are also looking for sponsorship to continue to compete at higher levels.

“We want the girls to compete, but we also want to try to keep it affordable and accessible to all the players,” Jessica Gintz said. “One of the tournaments I am hoping to get the girls in is the Field of Dreams Tournament in Dyersville at the beginning of October.”

Anyone interested in sponsoring the bombers is also encouraged to contact Jessica Gintz.
