The Blast re-signed midfielders J.J. Kremer and Danny Santoro to three-year contracts yesterday, the team's first signings of the off-season.

Both players will enter their third seasonswith the East Division-champion Blast.

Santoro, 26, played in every game last season for the second straight year, scoring 35 points and recording 10 assists. The Franklin graduate also had two points and two blocks in the playoffs.

"Danny did a good job for us and took a step forward with his defense," Blast coach/general manager Kevin Healey said. "Offensively, he is a player that works extremely hard. He has a lot of skills and moves. He can score a lot of points with his quickness."

Kremer, 25, suffered through a groin injury last season and was limited to 19 games. The Calvert Hall graduate recorded 10 points.

He returned in the Blast's second-round playoff loss to the Cleveland Crunch. The Blast won its first-round playoff series over Philadelphia, 2-0.
