Bermuda’s own David Bascome will be inducted into Baltimore Blast’s Hall of Fame along with two other inductees this weekend.
According to the announcement by the US soccer team, the 11-time champions Baltimore Blast “will induct 3 new members to their Hall of Fame” today (February 29).
“This year’s Hall of Fame inductees include, Marty McGinty, Lee Tschantret and David Bascome.
“The ceremony will take place at halftime of the 6pm game verses the Rochester Lancers.”
Team owner Ed Hale added: “This group is one of the best of our great tradition of hall of famers. Each one of them brought something special to our team on and off the field.”
Baltimore Blast Vice President of Soccer Operations Gianni Tumminello said: “David and Lee’s contributions to the Blast and the game of indoor soccer are well known and it’s great to see them take their spot in the Blast Hall of Fame.”
Mr Bascome’s website notes that David Bascome “played professional indoor soccer for 17 years” now “entering his 14th season as Danny Kelly’s assistant coach”.
“He was named to the position on October 12, 2006 and has since helped lead the team to the 2008, 2009, 2013, and 2016 Championships. During his 17-year playing career, Bascome won three championships, all with the Blast.”
