Thunder to Host ODM Testing Event

Does your Thunder athlete dream about playing collegiate softball when they're older?

If so, the Thunder are hosting an ODM Testing Event on February 25th from 2 - 4 pm at the Bo Jackson Dome in Bensenville. This event is open to players of all ages that are interested in seeing how they stack up against other players their age.

ODM® is trusted by players, parents, college and travel ball coaches across the country to provide a baseline evaluation that can be used to compare a player's skills to their counterparts.

While there are a variety of companies that offer services like this, ODM is very well respected and provides leaderboards that can help identify where your player stands today and where they need to improve. Players can also earn bids to invitation-only OnDeck Softball Jamborees (showcase events).

Here are the details:
