2006 held at Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Champion: Long Haul/Enough Said/Easton/Tanel, Tallahassee, Florida (East)
Runner Up: Armed Forces, Washington D.C. (West)

It was a show down between the 2004 Women’s Open champion and the 2005 Women’s Open champion at the 2006 Hooters Championship Series. Enough Said swept the Armed Forces during the 2004 Women’s Open championship but it was the Armed Forces who swept the Yard Dawgs in 2005 to capture their first championship series. Long Haul/Enough Said took a commanding 2-0 lead in the series on Friday winning their opener 10-2 and finishing the night with a 16-11 victory. It looked as if it might be another blow out in game three as Long Haul took a commanding 6-0 lead in the first inning but the Armed Forces battled back. Solid defense held Long Haul scoreless during the next innings and the Armed Forces managed to score three in the second, two in the fourth and a run in the fifth to tie the game 6-6 in the top of the fifth. Long Haul responded with two runs in the bottom of the fifth to take the lead once again and added an insurance run in the bottom of the sixth inning. The Armed Forces managed to plate only one run in the top of the seventh inning and for the second time they were swept by Enough Said in the Hooters Championship Series. Women’s Open MVP Cara Coughenour came through in a big way in game three going 2-for-3 with a home run and four RBI. During the championship series Coughenour was 7-for-11 (.626) with two doubles, a home run and eight RBI. Long Haul/Enough Said finished 66-2 on the season.

Long Haul/Enough Said won all three championships games 10-2, 16-11, 9-7.

Champion – AM/Las Vegas/Benfield/Reece/Belcher/Easton, Bowling Green, Kentucky
Runner Up – U.S. Armed Forces, Washington, DC

AM Las Vegas/Benfield/Easton finally won its first ASA Major national title at historic Sanford Memorial Stadium with a four inning run-rule 27-5 win over the Armed Forces. They bested a field of three by winning four consecutive games en route to the title. In four games they scored 84 runs and allowed only 25 runs, hitting 33 HR among its 80 hits led by tourney HR champ Brett Helmer (7 HR among his 9-13, .692 performance). After scoring six runs in the first inning of the championship game AM/Las Vegas opened up the throttle on offense in the second inning by scoring 15 runs on nine hits.

Helmer, who was added to the AM/Las Vegas roster for this event, highlighted the inning with a grand slam. Three of Helmer’s homers, worth eight RBIs, came in the championship game and he finished the game 3-for-3.

Tourney MVP Danny Crine, Billy Joe ‘BJ’ Fulk, Brian Justice and Kris O’Hara each hit homers in the inning.

AM/Las Vegas outfit the Armed Forces, 20-7.

Justice plated five runs with a pair of homers and a single, Alex Lavorico smashed three homers in four at-bats to drive in four runs and Fulk had a 3-Run HR in the 15 run second.

This would be the last year of the ASA Major Men’s Slow Pitch National Tournament as it was disbanded after the 2006 season when the 2006 event was cancelled.
