1994 ASA Women’s Major Fast Pitch Nationals

1994 held at Decatur, Illinois.

Champion – Redding Rebels, Redding, California (34-8)
Runner Up – Southern California Jazz, Bellflower, California (29-7)

The tournament was played under a different format. There were 26 teams total and they were broken up into two 13 team brackets, double elimination format. The only twist was that team that wins the losers bracket in “A” will play the “B” winner’s bracket survivor. And the team that wins the losers bracket in “B” will play the “A” winner’s bracket survivor. In the end, the 2 “brackets” would have a winner and The Bracket A champ would play the Bracket B champ in a one game championship.

The Bracket A Champ was the Redding Rebels, after winning their first game 1-0, who lost their second game 4-1 to the St. Louis Classics and then won 8 straight games to capture the Bracket title and then their 9th consecutive victory was in the Championship game. They had to defeat the hometown Lady Pride twice to win the bracket and reach the final. The two games were won with relative ease as the Rebels shutout the Lady Pride twice 8-0 and 16-0. Michele Smith tossed a 1-hit shutout and struck out 10 in the first game, then started the second game, pitching one inning. Lori Sippel came in and finished the final 4 innings in the 16-0 rout.

In the A Bracket final, things were much simpler as The SoCal Jaz won 2-0 over the Newport Beach Activity A’s on a shutout by Heather Compton. The Championship game was decided by two home runs by the Rebels hitters. The game was a scoreless tie until Kelly Jackson led off the bottom of the 6th with a solo HR and a couple batters later, eventual tournament MVP Kim Maher unloaded a 2-run shot. Michele Smith pitched a 1-hit shutout and struck out 10 Jazz batters. Jazz pitcher, Heather Compton, who pitched brilliantly the whole tournament was the losing pitcher.

The Rebels pitching staff gave up only 6 runs in the 10 games, tossing 8 shutouts along the way. Besides Michele Smith (5-0), Lori Sippel was 2-1 and Dee Dee Weiman was 2-0 with a no hitter. They outscored their opponents 66-6 in the 10 games.

The Brakettes came into the tournament with a 47-0 record. They finished the season 51-2. The legendary Barbara Reinalda may have made her last appearance a memorable one as she won the only game she pitched 3-1. That victory was the 77th win in a row for Reinalda. Lori Harrigan was (1-1) with a shutout for the Brackettes. Michele Bolster was also 1-1, losing a game in relief of Lisa Fernandez. Fernandez pitched a 5-0 one-hitter with 5 K for her only decision (she was 1-0).

Michele Granger of the Cal Commotion was 1-2, but both her losses were by the score of 1-0, She threw a 8-0, 5 inning no hitter with 13 K in the game she won and in 19 total innings pitched, she had 41 K.

Debbie Doom also pitched a game for the Commotion and hurled a 1-hit shutout and had 12 K.

Kathy Van Wyck was 1-0, with a 1-hitter, and 12 K.

Kim Maher broke all time Home Run record with 5 HR, and also had 12 RBI.

1994 ASA Men’s Major Slow Pitch Nationals

1994 held at Lawton, Oklahoma.

Champion – Riverside/Ram/Taylor/TPS, Louisville, Kentucky
Runner Up – Back Porch/Worth, Destin, Florida

The ASA Major win two weeks ago in Lawton, Oklahoma, marked the second time Riverside has won the tournament under Mike Glasscock. River­side, which went 6-1 in the double-elimination tournament, went unde­feated when it claimed the 1991 championship in Decatur, Alabama. “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 HR, 27 RBI), Eric Moore (.741, 9 HR, 25 RBI), 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.

1994 ASA Men’s Over 40 Slow Pitch Nationals

1994 held on August 26-28 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Champion – Capital X-Ray, Fairfax, Virginia
Runner Up – New Mech, Bloomington, Minnesota

Capital X-Ray of Fairfax, Virginia defeated New Mech of Bloomington 19-17 on Sunday in the finals of the ASA Over-40 slow pitch softball national tournament in Las Vegas.

“We were given up for dead a couple of times,” said Bubba Crismond, an outfielder for Capital X-Ray. “The first time was when we got thrown into the losers’ bracket.”

Capital X-Ray won two games before losing to New Mech.

“It came down to us having to play six games in one day on Sunday,” said Crismond, who hit .778 in 10 games. “We started at 7:30 in the morning winning seven inning games and played until 5:30 in the afternoon. I was exhausted toward the end, but playing on adrenaline. We won all six games we played”

En route to the title, Capital X-Ray beat the tournament’s five top rated teams. It defeated defending champion Nothdurft (Warren, Mich.) and New Mech twice.

“And in the final, we were down 10-1 to them in the third inning,” Crismond said. “We looked finished. But we had a seven run inning. Later, I hit a three run homer to put us ahead 11-10.”

“What a time to hit it. And we just kept rolling from there and won 18-13. And it was a big thrill catching a fly ball for the game’s final out. I was playing right center and had to move on the ball. It wasn’t that easy of a catch.”

“We were the last unbeaten,” New Mech manager and designated hitter Ron Ploog said. “We lost twice in the finals to Capital X-Ray from Virginia. The last game was 19-17 and we had two on and two out in the seventh inning and their right-center fielder made a nice catch on a line drive to end the game.”

1994 ASA Men’s Over 35 Slow Pitch Nationals

1994 held at Clem Kelly Park in Bismarck, North Dakota on September 2-5.

Champion – Vector Security, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
Runner Up – Tharaldson Insurance, Fargo, North Dakota

Sailing into uncharted waters suited the Harrisburg Vector Security slow-pitch softball team just fine.

The Pennsylvania club didn’t venture almost 1,200 miles to Bismarck to jump in over its head or to tread water in the ASA Men’s Masters 35-and-Over tournament

They came to North Dakota to win. And win they did, capturing the national title with a 6-1 record. Previously undefeated Vector Security closed the books on the championship Monday by splitting two games with Fargo Tharaldson Insurance at the Clem Kelley Complex.

Tharaldson Insurance, the losers bracket survivor, trimmed Vector Security 18-15 in the first game but fell 13-11 in the decisive game.

A 19-7 win over TJ’s Bud (Great Falls, Mont.) put Tharaldson’s in the finals. Earlier in the day, TJ’s eliminated St. Joseph, Minn., Anderson Plumbing in a 19-9 nine-inning thriller.

Vector Security handed Tharaldson’s its first loss of the tourney, 18-16, on Sunday.

“We thought we had a good shot, or we wouldn’t have come out here,” said Vector Security pitcher and tournament MVP Don King.

Third baseman Randy Beckley, who popped two homers and drove in four runs for Vector Security in the second championship game, reiterated King’s viewpoint. “We believe in ourselves, and we thought we had a chance, seeing how well we did at state,” Beckley said.

In the Pennsylvania Masters-35 tourney, Vector Security went 5-0 for the state title. That was the first five games of Masters competition for the club this season. As a Class B team, Vector Security was 75-7.

Tharaldson’s seemed to be in the driver’s seat early in the finale of the 31-team, double-elimination tourney. After winning the first championship game, the Fargoans jumped ahead 2-0 on Ken Terfehr’s homer and opened a 7-0 gap in the first inning of the final.

That was clearly the most damaging frame of the tournament against Vector Security , which was adept at avoiding killer innings. Beckley said Vector took it philosophically. “We just don’t give up,” he said.

“When you’re up against great teams like that, they’re going to have a big inning and get up. You’ve got to have a big inning and come back.”

Vector Security failed to match Tharaldson’s seven-run burst, but chipped away bit-by-bit while holding the Fargo team to four runs the rest of the way.

Beckley’s two-run homer was the key to a three-run home first inning for Vector Security. Five singles and a double produced four more in the second to tie the game.

Tharaldson’s took its last lead, 10-9, on Terry Stargardt’s inside-the-park homer and Mike Jastram’s RBI single in the top of the fourth. Vector Security answered with three runs on a four-single flurry and sacrifice flies by Carl Miller and Jim Smith. That made it 12-10 and the Pennsylvania club was in charge for good.

Bob Piatz, a pickup player from Jamestown who played brilliant defensive ball in right field, could hardly believe Tharaldson’s produced just one fence-clearing shot in the final. “If you’d told me before the game, we wouldn’t use all three homers (a three-homer limit was in effect) I’d never have believed you,” he said. “… But I’d never have guessed we’d only score four runs in the last six innings, either.”

Piatz said he really felt Tharaldson’s had Vector Security on the run after the seven-run first inning.

“But we didn’t keep the pressure on them. Our bats went dead.”

King believes some of that may have been due to the pride his team takes in defense. “We play good defense,” he said. “We had some timely hitting, but basically we play good defense.”

Championships are nothing new for Vector Security. This is their seventh of the season. But King has never enjoyed that national championship feeling before. “We’ve won a lot of tournaments this year,” he said, “but this is by far the best feeling I’ve ever had.”

And all it took was six victories — and 1,200 miles.
