For many years, Bleckley-based Motion Fastpitch was a staple of the travel softball world. Founded by Shane Coulter, the team had several Bleckley players come through their ranks. Two of those players were Coulter's daughter Hannah and Taylor Dykes, daughter of Lee Dykes, a coach in the organization.
This past summer, Firecrackers fastpitch, a national softball organization, approached them about joining. So Motion closed, and Firecrackers 16U Powell(16 and under team named for coach Payton Powell of Roberta, who was also a coach for Motion) was born. Coulter and Dykes both play, Lee Dykes is a coach, and Shane Coulter serves as an advisor. The Firecrackers have played in showcase events and tournaments throughout the southeast.
