1992 NCAA Women’s College World Series

1992 held at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on May 23-26.

Champion – UCLA Bruins (54-2)
Runner Up – Arizona Wildcats (58-7)

With the game scoreless in the bottom of the seventh inning, freshman Jenny Brewster blasted a two-run walk-off home run to claim the title for UCLA against rival, Arizona. Lisa Fernandez was a picture of perfection, winning the championship game to cap off a 29-0 season. It was an NCAA first, for a pitcher to go unbeaten and win the final.

After Arizona spoiled UCLA’s chances of four consecutive NCAA Championships in 1991, the Bruins exacted revenge the following year with a title-game victory against their Pac-10 rival. UCLA went 54-2 overall, but both losses came at the hands of Arizona, allowing the Wildcats to end the Bruins’ run of four straight Pac-10 titles. UCLA started the season with 33 straight wins, crushing opponents by a 166-17 margin.

Following their first loss to Arizona, the Bruins ran off another 14-game win streak, blanking foes in 10 of the victories. After falling in the regular-season finale against the Wildcats, UCLA finished the year with an undefeated postseason, including a title-game win over Arizona.

Junior Lisa Fernandez was masterful both in the circle and at the plate. She posted a nation-best ERA of 0.14 and was undefeated on the year at 29-0. The All-American and Honda Award winner was outstanding at the plate also, hitting .401 with 29 runs batted in.

Not to be forgotten in the circle were junior hurlers DeeDee Weiman (11-1, 0.51 ERA) and Heather Compton (14-1, 0.67 ERA), who combined for 16 shutouts and 274 strikeouts.

Senior All-American Yvonne Gutierrez was the powerful stick in the lineup, leading the club with a .406 average, 11 home runs and 58 RBI. Her 11 home runs tied for the NCAA lead.

Fernandez and Gutierrez were joined on the All-American team by freshmen Joanne Alchin (.323 BA) and Kathi Evans (.363).

As a team, the Bruins hit .304 and had five players bat above the .300 mark.

The Bruins skated past Utah in the Regional round and then blew away their first four opponents in the College World Series, winning by a combined score of 29-1 and recording two mercy-rule victories.

In the championship game, it was a pitcher’s duel between Fernandez and Arizona’s Debby Day. The duo matched zeroes on the board until the bottom of the seventh inning. Gutierrez led off the frame with a single, moved over to second on a sacrifice by Jennifer Brundage and came home on Jenny Brewster’s walk-off home run to left.

Fernandez, who finished the year with 65 straight scoreless innings, was named to the All-Tournament Team along with Evans, Gutierrez and Kelly Inouye.

1992 ASA Women’s Major Fast Pitch Nationals

1992 held at Redding, California.

Champion – Raybestos Brakettes, Stratford, Connecticut (51-1)
Runner Up – Redding Rebels, Redding, California

The Rebels forced the extra game with Lori Sippel defeating the Brakettes 2-0.  Consecutive Singles by Dot Richardson, Trisha Popowski and Pat Dufficy accounted for the games only run in the 8th inning of the final championship game to give the Brakettes the title. Dufficy’s two out single scored Richardson who scored on a beautiful hook slide to just beat the throw. Earlier in the tournament, the Brakettes set a record by defeating a team from Washington DC 30-0. They hit 10 homeruns in the game to set a record for homers in a game also. Fernandez pitched the final, defeating Dee Dee Weiman of the Rebels. The Rebels defeated the Arizona Sunbirds 6-0 in the loser’s bracket final behind Michele Smith. The Brakettes defeated Smith and the Rebels 7-1 in the Winner’s bracket final behind Fernandez 3 hitter and 9 K. Once again, the Brakettes entered the ASA National Championship with an undefeated season record of 45-0.  They went 6-1 to finish up 51-1.

The Brakettes, at the end of their 46th season, has won 2465 games and lost only 278 games for a winning percentage of 90%. Since 1958, they have won 23 national championships and lost in the finals 10 times. So, in the last 35 years, there have only been two years where this team was not in the national championship game. These years were 1962, when they finished 3rd with a 4-2 record and in 1979, they were 17th with a 1-2 record. This is one of the greatest streaks in sports history.

Dee Dee Weiman (1-1) for the Rebels.

Lisa Longaker (3-1, Shutout) and Lori Harrigan 2-1, Shutout) pitched for the Commotion.

Barbara Reinalda and Cheri Kempf (0-1, lost a 2-0 game) also pitched for the Brakettes.
