Ken Kamradt, a five time All-American at the National Tournament level, and twenty year veteran of the softball wars, epitomizes excellence in 16” softball. As a shortstop with the ERV Strikers, Kamradt helped them win the 1974 ASA National Championship and the 1975 World Series of Softball at Soldier Field. In 1976 he switched to the Bobcats and was instrumental in their regular season 26 and 6 record, as well as their National Championship. A clutch hitter, Kamradt’s trademark move at shortstop was to go deep into the hole and fire a strike to nip an opponent as he crossed first base. All totaled, he has been involved in winning five 16” National Championships. In addition to his record in 16” softball, Ken Kamradt has also won a National title in 12” softball in 1991, four 12” All-American honors, and a 12” Golden Glove Award in 1992. In 2000 Ken lived in Lockport, Illinois, enjoying his new passion; golf.
