Team Exclusion dominates NSA’s Summer Heat Sizzler

CROSSVILLE — Crossville’s newest softball organization swept the NSA tournament held June 2-3 at Centennial Park. 

The 16u Team Exclusion dominated their home fields with an undefeated record declaring them tournament champions.  The 16 and under team consists of CCHS and SMHS players all from Cumberland County. 

The 12u Team Exclusion declared Reserve Champions after losing a tough 10-7 battle in the championship game by the Cookeville Crush. 

Team Exclusion was brought to life to bring back the love of softball, while learning fundamentals in a calm and encouraging environment.  Organization Director Steve Hinch said he decided to start this for his daughters where they could play softball at a competitive level with strong coaches, an excellent environment, and not travel out of county. 

“This is about the girls. We want them to have a good time and play ball," he said.  "One of our coaches that I have always looked up to brought me a quote that boys have to win to feel good about themselves and girls have to feel good about themselves to win. I believe there has never been a truer statement and this Saturday was proof.  We are accomplishing our mission when all those young ladies walk off the field smiling carrying champion and reserve trophies.  We are expanding with a 10u team and hope to add 14u in the near future," said  Hinch.

Anyone interested in playing should email Steve Hinch at and check out the Facebook page at Crossville_Exclusion.
