Kristy's Krushers is a team for kids, created by Kristy, who are too young or too scared for Little League. The team often plays against Bart's Bashers, coached by Kristy's on-again/off again boyfriend Bart Taylor. Later Kristy and Bart form the Krashers as well.


The Krushers often lose against the Bashers, but they learn a lot about team spirit and sportsmanship. Karen Brewer wants the team name to be ‘crushers', but she is voted down in Kristy and the Walking Disaster. Jackie Rodowsky is the player that named the team.

In Stacey the Math Whiz, the Krushers had indoor pre-season practices at Stoneybrook Elementary School.

Abby Stevenson is the assistant coach. Nancy Dawes temporarily helped with the equipment on the side in Karen's Lemonade Stand.

Kristy carries around duffel bag with extra balls, plastic batting tee, a wrench, electrician's tape, a first aid kit, a batting helmet and a few gloves in Kristy and the Dirty Diapers.

During practice, they would sometimes play a game of backward ball where they ran the bases differently.


Their uniform are jeans and a t-shirt with the name Kristy's Krushers in black lettering. Only Kristy's is in red. Karen Brewer has Kristy's Crushers on hers, because it's the correct spelling of the word "crushers." Each player has their own batting gloves and hats with a "K" on it.

The cheerleaders wear denim skirts, sneakers, white knee socks, and Krushers Ts.


In Mind Your Own Business, Kristy!, Kristy hosted the Krusher Spring Klinic where the kids prepped for the season. Charlie Thomas helped coach along with Abby and minor help of the BSC. They were visited by a former Mets player, Jack Brewster, to give autographs and baseball tips.




In Kristy and the Dirty Diapers, the team briefly had a band that would play music sometimes. It was disbanded by the end of the book to make their own group. Anna Stevenson was their conductor. Members included:
