Steve Prostran

      A 1969 graduate of Shurz High School and DPaul University, Steve Postran began his thirteen year softball career with the Road Runners in 1973. The following two seasons he played with Al Maag’s Baggers, then the Bakers and the Associates in 1976 before hitting it big with the Bobcats, Amalgamonsters, Runts and Stompers. The championships and all tournament honors began to accumulate for Steve in the late 70’s, when he was a member of the Bobcat team that won the Windy City Championship. That game was broadcast by Channel 5 to the largest audience ever to see 16″ softball, and Postran was named tournament MVP. That year the Bobcats went on to win the ASA National Championship in Missouri. From 1978 to 1982 Postran helped the Amalgamonsters to two ASA second place finishes and a third place finish in addition to state, city, and metro championships. Steve also helped the Runts to a second place ASA finish in 1982. He was named first team All American each of those five years. In 1983 Steve moved back to the Bobcats and helped them capture the Clarendon Park Championship and was named ROX League MVP. Postran finished his career in 1986 with the Stompers, helping them to a second place finish in the USSSA National Tournament, a fifth place finish at the ASA National Tournament, and bowing out with a career batting average over .600. Steve and his wife, Lynette, have a son, Michael. Steve is an account executive with At&T Media Services in Chicago.
