Ritch’s-Superior became the first team in Softball History to win the Grand Slam of Softball. They won the ISA, NSA, ASA and now the USSSA World Championships.

Fuller ended the season with a .774 batting average. Dave Steffen had 12 HRs among his 15 hits, was named the MVP. Ritch’s defeated Williams/Worth 25-22 in the championship game. Britt Hightower, who always comes up big in championship games, was 4-5 with 2 HRs. Ron Parnell hit 3 HRs, while Rick Weiterman, Doug Roberson and Darrell Beeler all had 3 hits in the game. Sterlin Ibrom was 4-4 for Williams/Worth. Carol Rose, Jon Meyers and Freddie Johnson all added two HRs each. Ritch’s out-homered Williams 12-11 and out hit them 24 to 23. Williams eliminated Spectrum 27-13 in the loser’s bracket final as John Grissom had 5 Home Runs in the game. A word of note; this was Cecil Whitehead’s 7th USSSA World Series Championship, more then any other player.

1992 ASA Super Men’s Slow Pitch Nationals

1992 held at Drake’s Creek in Hendersonville, Tennessee on August 21-23.


Champion – Ritch’s-Superior/TPS, Windsor Locks, CT
Runner Up – Steele’s/Sunbelt, Brooke Park, OH


Steele’s won the winners bracket finals 32-31 over Ritch’s-Superior as they hit 16 homers in the game.  Jacques Miller hit 3 HRs and 4 other players each had two. Ritch’s-Superior then came back from the losers bracket and defeated Steele’s/Sunbelt 36-25 to force the ‘if’ game.  Charles Wright had 3 HRs and 9 RBIs in that game.   Ritch’s was leading 16-0 in the top of the first inning of the ‘if’ game when the rains came and after a long delay, Ritch’s-Superior was awarded the Championship over Steele’s Sunbelt via ASA’s tie-breaker rule (they both beat each other once, but Ritch’s had a better overall tournament record).
