The Mirage Family

“As the parents of a player from Western Massachusetts, our daughter’s choice of softball travel teams in our immediate area is limited. We feel extremely fortunate to have discovered the Mirage organization and our daughter has flourished under the tutelage of experienced, dedicated coaches. The chemistry between teammates, parents and coaches has been excellent and has led to a strong, supportive atmosphere for all.” – A Mirage Parent
