2001 ASA Super Men’s Slow Pitch Nationals

2001 held at Sanford, Florida.


Champion – Long Haul/Taylor Brothers/Shen Corp/TPS, Albertville, Minnesota
Runner Up – Hague/Resmondo/Specialty Tank/TPS, Columbus, Ohio


Congratulations on Long Haul/Taylor Brothers/Shen Corp/TPS for accomplishing a feat very rare in Slow Pitch Softball. They went 70-6 on the year and won EVERY national championship sanction there was to win in their class to capture the “Grand Slam” of Softball. The only other team to do this was the great Ritch’s-Superior/TPS of Windsor Locks, CT in 1992 who went 80-9 when they won all four events. Before the ISA and NSA came along in the mid 1980’s, there was such an accomplishment called the “Triple Crown” of Softball, which was winning the USSSA, ASA and the old NSPC. The only teams to do this were the Nelson’s Painting/Nelco Mfg. (80-10) of Oklahoma City, OK in 1979, Campbell’s Carpets (118-12) of Concord, CA in 1980 and Howard’s/Western Steer (160-15) of Denver, NC in 1981. That’s only 5 teams in the history of softball that have accomplished a feat like this.
