Our Players

With a Hershey/Hummelstown base, our players are drawn from several Central PA Counties.  We seek coachable young ladies who are interested in improving as players in a supportive atmosphere with experienced coaches. We provide an alternative to intensive, year-round travel softball, as many of our players are multiple sport athletes!

Our showcase team is more intensive, with a focus on recruitment and education on the process. 

Our Mission

Capital Crush was formed in 2017 to provide high level, affordable travel softball to players living in the Hershey/Hummelstown area.  We seek to extend the experience players receive in recreational softball, developing higher level softball skills, and providing a more competitive experience, without the hefty price tag. We have a proven track record for success at all levels of play. 

We have added a Recruitment Specialist, for high school aged players who are looking to play in college. 

Our Coaches

Our coaches are passionate about teaching the game of softball.  We recruit coaches who have a track record of teaching solid fundamentals, and developing winning teams while emphasizing sportsmanship, teamwork, and the love of the game.  Hitting, pitching and catching instruction available by DI, DII & DIII baseball & softball players. 95% of our coaches are volunteers!
