1994 ASA Major Men’s Slow Pitch Nationals

1994 held at Lawton, Oklahoma.


Champion – Riverside/Ram/Taylor/TPS, Louisville, KY
Runner Up – Back Porch/Worth, Destin, FL


The ASA Major win two weeks ago in Lawton, Okla., marked the second time Riverside has won the tournament under Glasscock. River­side, which went 6-1 in the double-elimination tournament, went unde­feated when it claimed the 1991 championship in Decatur, Ala. “That’s quite an accomplish­ment,” said Kenny Gavin, Louis­ville’s ASA director. “There’s only one step up from this, and that’s su­per. I don’t call that a softball game because they score 75 to 80 runs a game.”

“What we’ve done is almost un­heard of,” Glasscock said. “We worked hard all year for this. It’s very special to us.”

After finishing fourth in last year’s ASA Major, Riverside was champing at the bit to get back in this year’s field.

“We should have won it, and in the back of our minds the boys knew that and just wanted this one really bad,” Glasscock said. “De­fense was great and (we got) timely hitting. It was a total team effort. We weren’t going to be denied.” Riverside has a combined record of 69-27 this season as it heads into the World Series.

At the ASA Major, Riverside was paced by Most Valuable Player and home run champ Dennis Pierce, who had 18 homers and a tourna­ment record 50 RBIs in seven games. The catcher went 25 of 32 with 25 runs scored.

After breezing in its first two games of the ASA Major, Riverside trailed Bee Motors 29.9 heading into the top of the fifth inning of the third game. It scored nine runs to stay alive, then rallied from nine down and scored 20 in the seventh to win 44-33.

“We just kept coming back,” Glasscock said:

Moulton Furniture scored 15 runs in the top of the first in the winners’ bracket final, but Riverside didn’t worry. It rallied to win 40-27.

The only loss came in the final to Back Porch, 32-10. But Riverside re­grouped and ripped Back Porch 30­-18 to win the title.

This week’s tournament will be a test for Riverside because USSSA rules differ from the team’s normal ASA rules. There is a lower strike zone and the basepaths are longer. “It’s going to be different,” Glass­cock said. “We’re not accustomed to playing that style of ball. But we feel good. We’re an experienced team, even though we’re young for softball. It’ll take an awful lot, but I think (after winning the nationals) I can get them back down.”

Joining Pierce on the first-team All-America squad were Ernie Gumm (.769, 11 HRs, 27 RBIs), Eric Moore (.741, 9 HRs, 25 RBIs), and pitcher Brian Ellinghausen.

Riverside’s other members in­clude David Crawley, Mike Jackson, Eddie McCauley, Cole Elkin, Tom­my Scott, John Mello, Tony Stans­bury, Billy Adams, Dave Elder and Adam Jackson.
