Ed Balinger


Ed Balinger has been a mainstay in Top Gun softball for so long as a player and manager.  He has contributed to the associations success and growth due to his ability to recruit players and put together teams that compete at the highest level no matter what age group and division.  As a player he is the phrase “Steady Eddy”.  This is the type of player you always want on your team someone who shows up and then shows up on the field.  As a player he was smooth in the field as well as at the bat.  As a manager, with his wife Doreen he exhibited those same qualities.  He is the type of manager and player that you as a player wanted to play for and with. His selection into the Top Gun HOF was well overdue and most deserving for all he has done for Top Gun Senior Softball association.
