1985 ASA Men’s Major Fast Pitch Nationals

1985 held at Salt Lake City, Utah on August 15-22.

Champion – Pay’N Pak, Seattle, Washington (105-15)
Runner Up – Decatur ADM, Decatur, Illinois

The story of the tournament was the incredible pitching of Jimmy Moore of Pay n Pak. He pitched and won the final championship game 3-1 over ADM. He pitched every inning but 3 in the tournament (39 of the total 42 innings Pay n Pak played). He hurled 3 shutouts and surrendered only 3 earned runs in the tournament.

Bruce Beard and Bill Boyer both supplied the power in the final game as their home runs accounted for all 3 runs.

Jimmy Moore one of the greatest seasons in men’s fast pitch history as he was named player of the year in just about every fast pitch publication. In addition to his brilliance in the ASA Nationals, he was the Most Valuable Pitcher in the ISC Worlds (6-0), 5 shutouts, 2 perfect games, 42 IP, 64 K). He also was also 4-0 as his team (Coors Kings) won the Olympic Sports Festival as well. Moore finished that tournament with a record of 51 Ks in 28 innings pitched.  Moore finished the season with a 50-4 record and was the Fast Pitch Softball News Bulletin’s Player of the Year for 1985.
