2001 ASA Men’s Major Fast Pitch Nationals

2001 held at Decatur, Illinois on August 3-7.

Champion – Frontier Players Casino, St. Joseph, Missouri (50-17)
Runner Up – Decatur Pride, Decatur, Illinois

  • MVP – Kerry Shaw, Frontier Players Casino (7 for 8 on the final day; 3 for 3 in the losers bracket final and then 4 for 5 in two championship games and played a tremendous shortstop)
  • Batting Leader – Trent Rubley, The Farm (8-17) – .471
  • HR Leader – Steve Hovell, 51 Dukes – 3
  • Herb Dudley Pitching Award – Rob O’Brien, Frontier Players Saloon (4-0, 19 IP, 34 K, 3 shutouts, no-hitter; won final 3 games, including the 1-0 no-hitter and 3-1 clincher, pitched 19 innings in the final day)

Frontier Players Casino won their first 3 games before running into Darren Zack and the Decatur Pride and Zack silenced them in the 5-0 winners bracket win.

In the losers bracket, The Farm eliminated the NY Smokers 6-0 to advance to the losers bracket final against Frontier Saloon, only to be defeated 5-2. Frontier then had to defeat the Decatur Pride twice to claim the title. Well, they did so, 1-0 and 3-1 to win the championship. Rob O’Brien hurled a 1-0 no hitter in the first final. Then he bounced right back with a stellar effort, limiting the Pride to just 4 hits in the 3-1 victory, including a Boomer Brush home run.

Including the 5 innings he pitched in the losers bracket final, he hurled 19 innings on the day, allowing just 1 run. O’Brien was at his best in the 6th inning of the final championship game, as the Pride trailed 3-1. Ehren Earleywine led off the inning with a single, then O’Brien struck out the next 3 batters. In the first final, Kerry Shaw hit a hard line drive off Darren Zach to plate the winning run in the 1-0 thriller. Shaw was 3 for 3 in the game.

Doug Middleton (1-1, shutout, save) and Terry Luster (1-0) also pitched for Frontier.

Mike White (1-1) pitched for the Pride.
