2008 ASA Open Women’s Slow Pitch Nationals

2008 held at Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Champion: Hawks/Miss Kitty, Des Moines, IA
Runner Up: Armed Forces, Washington, DC

Hawks/Miss Kitty’s, Coming from the loser’s bracket, Hawks/Miss Kitty’s captured the 2008 Women’s Open National Championship in a 6 -5 walk-off decision over the Armed Forces. It was a long day for the winning team as they played five games tallying a 4-1 record. The Hawks forced the “if” game five when they skunked Armed Forces 10-0 in game four. In the final championship win, the Hawks were led by catcher and tournament MVP Sirene Johnson who led the way going 2-for-4 in the final game with three RBI. Armed Forces put up a great fight with four batters each contributing two hits. But they couldn’t hold the lead as Hawks/Miss Kitty’s scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh for the eventual walk-off win. “This team has a great group of talent, but we just needed to pull together our mental game today,” said tournament MVP Sirene Johnson. “And that we did. We lost to Armed Forces twice and we really needed to combine our mental focus with our physical talent to win this. We changed our defense due to their base hits in the game before and we finally started hitting the ball. Our team never gave up! And we love Oklahoma City!” The home run champion went to Hawks/Miss Kitty’s Ruby Nugent while the batting champion went to extra hitter and head coach of the Hawks/Miss Kitty, Christan Dowling.

  • MVP – Sirene Johnson, Hawks (10-18, .556, 3 RBIs)

2008 ASA C Men’s Slow Pitch Nationals

2008 held at Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Champion – Suburban Softball, Kalamazoo, Michigan
Runner Up – CA/JO/Absolute Bail Company, Chesapeake, Virginia


Finishing in the wee hours of the morning, the Men’s C title was gutted out by CA/JO and Suburban/SKS ending at 1:40 a.m. with Suburban/SKS on top 14 to 13 in eight innings. CA/JO made a valiant effort in the bottom of the seventh inning scoring seven runs to tie the game at 13 before the winning run was walked in for Suburban/ SKS to take home the title trophy. Representing the North in the first year of the four corners concept for Men’s Class C, Suburban/SKS finished their pool play at 1-2 and came into the final day as the No. 2 seed. They were 2-0 in the bracket coming into the first match-up with CA-JO, but their bats fell short in a 20-8 defeat forcing the “if game.” But with their spirits and energy high after midnight, they burned the midnight oil in order to claim the title of 2008 ASA Men’s Class C National Champions.

The MVP award was given to Todd Fairbanks (Jackson, Mich.) who led all batters for Suburban/SKS hitting .636 (14-of-22) for the weekend. As a team, the champions hit .484 with six total home runs recorded.
