Launched in 2019, Vexus Softball is a product of three well-established respected softball organizations merging together to grow the level of the sport in the tri-state area of Tennessee, Alabama, and Mississippi. Tom McCluskey, founder of Kraze Softball (AL), Tonia Martin, founder of TN Illusions (TN), and Phillip Rogers, Director of American Freedom (MS) realized they had the same vision and sought to provide an affordable program geared at recruiting the top talent in the area.
With over 40 years of combined experience in leading programs and successfully placing student-athletes in college programs, these three Vexus directors now form one strong softball organization geared at developing each player to compete at the highest level of competition. The Vexus Eagles feature approximately 28 teams in Alabama, Mississippi, and Tennessee ranging from 8U-18U and growing.
