2004 ASA Girls Gold 18-Under Fast Pitch Nationals

2004 held at Marietta, Georgia on August 9-14.

Champion – Southern Force, Johnston City, Illinois
Runner Up – California Cruisers, La Palma, California

Sharma Diller’s RBI-single in the bottom of the 10th inning captured the Amateur Softball Association 18-and-under Gold National Tournament title for the Southern Force Sunday.

Diller, of Bloomington, drove Toni Whitfield of Johnston City in with the winning run in a 2-1 victory over the California Cruisers in Marietta, Ga. With the win, the Force became what’s believed to be the first team from the Midwest to ever win the tournament.

“We wanted it big time,” said Force coach Gerry Glasco. “I really felt positive that we were going to win, because we won the Canada Cup in a 0-0 game in the eighth inning.”

University of Georgia pitcher Kasi Carroll, who pitched Norris City-Omaha-Enfield to the Class A State ‘- Softball Tournament as a senior in 2003, notched the win for the Force off the mound Sunday. Carroll allowed four runs in 10 games over the five-day tournament that began Aug. 11.

The Force beat Impact (Texas) Gold 1-0 in Saturday night’s semifinals and topped two Division I recruits in the Sunday finals. Anjelica Selden, who signed with the University of California-Los Angeles, and Arizona State signee Mindy Cowles both pitched for the Cruisers in the title game and allowed both runs.

Cowles started the game, was relieved by Selden, and came back in the 10th inning, when the Force loaded the bases with nobody out.

Under the international tiebreaker, the Force began the inning with Whitfield on second base. Kacey Coonce was intentionally walked, bringing up Mount Vernon’s Katie Wagner. Wagner attempted to sacrifice Whitfield over to third, but reached base when the Cruisers’ first baseman pulled her foot off the bag, leaving the bases loaded for Diller.

She then smacked Cowles’ first pitch up the middle into center field for the game-winner.

“Everybody had a part in it,” Glasco said. “Wagner made a sacrifice. and Whitfield made a nice catch the other night, taking away a double. Chelsea Petty had big hit after big hit all week long. Wagner, Glasco, Petty and Coonce — they’ve played together for years, and they’re all from small towns.

“They pulled together better. The Cruisers came from all over the United States; their team would pull them in for every weekend and pay for all of their expense.”

The Cruisers scored the first run of the game in the top of the eighth, but the Force responded with a run in the bottom half off a wild pitch.

The Force ended at 59-9 overall, and will try to duplicate the feat next season.

Carroll will be ineligible next season, but Glasco said Belleville East fireballer Dylan Mathis of Roxana could play with the team next summer.

2003 ASA Men’s Major Fast Pitch Nationals

2003 held at Midland, Michigan on July 10-13.

Champion – The Farm Tavern, Madison, Wisconsin
Runner Up – Circle Tap, Denmark, Wisconsin (48-13)

Farm Tavern went undefeated (5-0) and beat Circle Tap (5-2) in final behind the pitching of Todd Martin (3-0), who won his 3rd game of the tournament. Jason Hanson hit a home run for the Farm Tavern. Hanson put Farm out ahead on a lead-off homer in the first inning and Farm expanded its margin to 4-0 on RBI singles by Todd Budke, Cliff Widsom and Smet. All of the runs in the second were unearned off losing pitcher Rob Scheller (2-1).

Circle Tap closed the gap to 4-1 when it scored its first run in the third on an RBI double by Delarwelle, bringing across Jess Ellestad who had walked after one out. In the fourth inning with one out, Circle Tap pitcher Rob Scheller and his catcher, Don Garvey, were both ejected from the game by home plate umpire Bryan Smith. Garvey went first and Scheller, who threw his glove after Garvey was ejected, followed.

Trevor Wardell replaced Scheller on the mound and third baseman Todd Malnory went behind the plate. Malnory, however, didn’t last long as he was ejected in his next at-bat for arguing a called third strike.

Chad Huebner replaced Malnory behind the plate to start the fifth inning and Circle Tap coach Wayne Kruger even inserted himself into the lineup at first. Circle Tap decided to call the game after batting in the sixth inning so it wouldn’t miss their airplane flight.

Scheller was the loser, hurling 3 1/3 innings, allowing six hits and one earned run. Wardell hurled 2 2/3 innings and gave up one hit. He fanned two. Budke of Farm Tavern had three hits in four at-bats.

A record 62 HR were hit by the 22 teams entered.

Gerald Muizelaar, Kelso; Jody Henniger, Fed Lock and Trevor Wardell, Circle Tap (all were 3-1). Wardell’s pitching mate, Rob Scheller was 2-1 for Circle Tap.
