After back-to-back 35 & Over World Tournament championships, sponsor Tim Freeman described the Tron Piping team by saying, “We were getting spoiled with success.”
No doubt, any sponsor would have loved to have their name attached to such a successful program during the mid-90s through 2000, with Tron Piping capturing two World titles and five consecutive 35 & Over State Championships.
Freeman’s ten years of sponsoring a Tron Piping team in the USSSA program allowed him to reflect, “The USSSA is the association to play. As a sponsor, it was felt that the USSSA was well-organized and held great state and world tournaments.”
In 1996 following Tron’s first World Championship with a loser’s bracket victory over Mountain Top, the team put on a terrific party. In celebration, they party again with their sponsor’s induction into the Illinois USSSA Hall of Fame.
