1998 ISA Super World Series

Carl Rose 1998 ISA Super MVP

Carl Rose slammed a no-doubt-about-it grand slam home run after a walk to big Wendell Rickard with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning to lift Lighthouse/Worth to a 26-24 win over Sierra/TPS Sunday (Aug. 9) in the championship game of the Independent Softball Association (ISA) World Series at Sims Park in Gastonia, N.C. The tournament was played on a baseball park, with dimensions of 335-360-380-360-335. Sierra forced an extra game with a 20-12 win over Lighthouse that saw Hank Garris wallop four home runs. Darrell Beeler had two homers and Kerry Everett and Greg Cannedy each had 4-for-4 games. Rickard had four boomers for Lighthouse in the deciding game. Al Davis had three and he was the tournament’s leading hitter with an .810 average. He had four walks. The ISA counts walks as hits and sacrifice flies as outs. Rose was the MVP. His final figures read: .708 with seven home runs, including three in the deciding game. Rickard had nine homers. Garris had a big tournament for Sierra. He was 10-for-10 with five home runs in the first two games, winding up 26-for-34 with a tourney leading 12 home runs and a tourney leading 22 RBI. Darrell Beeler had 11 HRs for Sierra. Garris has taken over the season home run lead from teammate Larry Fredieu. He has 176 compared to 172 for Fredieu, the defensive award winner for his play in left field. Lighthouse has now won all four legs of the Grand Slam . . . in the last four years (the ASA Super in 1995, the NSA in 1996 and the USSSA World Series in 1997). This tournament was upset filled, like last year when Ritch’s-Superior/Tri-Gems/Beloli/TPS went 0-2. Lighthouse was an upset victim last year too. Team TPS, the top team in the power ratings, went 0-2, losing first to Backstop/Easton 14-13 in 8 innings, then to Steele’s/R&D by a whopping 30-10 score in 4 innings. Defending champion Sunbelt/Easton, the top-ranked team in the Supreme Softball Top 25 (Sierra was second, Team TPS third, Steele’s fourth and Lighthouse fifth), also lost on opening night — 15-10 to sixth-ranked Wessel/Hague/SoJern/TPS. Sierra was knocked into the losers bracket in the second round — 20-19 by Wessel when a rally fell short in the bottom of the 7th. Sierra came back to oust Steele’s 18-13, Sunbelt 18-15 and Wessel 15-9. Lighthouse was a 33-13, 4-inning winner over Wessel in the finals of the winners bracket, exploding for 17 runs in the fourth inning. Lighthouse won easily over Backstop 14-2 in the semifinal round after holding off Steele’s 26-24 in the first round. The other first round game saw Sierra beat O&S/TPS 28-12. Early losers bracket play saw Sunbelt top O&S 16-5 and Backstop 30-14. The second leading hitters were Garris and Jeff Hall of Sunbelt at .765. Speedy center fielder Scott Striebel had a nifty running catch to rob Garris of an extra base hit with two runners on in the top of the seventh. He then helped set the stage for Rose’s game-winner with a single. After one out, Davis and Dewayne Frizzell homered. Then after two outs, Dennis Mendoza, Ricky Huggins and Striebel singled. Lighthouse averaged 7 home runs per game, Sierra 6. Steele’s, which played only three games, was tops at 8 HRs per game. The all-tournament team included Rose, Davis, Rickard, Dennis Mendoza, Robin Higginbotham and Scott Striebel of Lighthouse, Garris, Fredieu, Beeler, Mark Creson and pitcher Paul Drilling of Sierra, pitcher Jim Burbrink and shortstop Randy Vollmer of Wessel/Hague (they were good in the hit department too) and Shane Dubose, Jeff Hall and Johnny McCraw of Sunbelt. Hall and McCraw and Rusty Bumgardner of Team TPS were playing before home fans. Hall and McCraw (and Sunbelt manager Gary Lowe) are from Gastonia, Bumgardner from nearby Kings Mountain. Lighthouse jumped out to leads of 5-0 and 9-3 in the final game. Rickard, Rose and Davis homered in the first and Davis homered after a triple by Robbie Ergle in the second. Mendoza had a homer leading off the third after a 2-run double in the first. He another another RBI hit, plus his hit in the seventh. Rickard and Rose combined for 13 RBI. Sierra tied it at 11-11 in the top of the fourth, then moved into leads of 18-11 and 23-14. Garris, Fredieu and Parnell each had two homers, Beeler and Everett one each (both 3-runners). Mark Creson was 5-for-5. Parnell had two other hits, Kendrick, Drilling and Cannedy triples. Rickard had two homers and Rose a triple and homer in the 20-12 loss. Elliott had the only other HR for Lighthouse. Sierra built up a 12-3 lead going into the bottom of the fourth vs. Wessel. Sierra’s only HRs were by Garris and Beeler (a 3-runner). Garris was 4-4, Drilling 3-3. Sierra jumped out to a 12-0 lead in the first inning and held on in the 18-15 elimination of Sunbelt. Creson, Beeler and Fredieu homered, while Garris had two hits in the big first. Everett went 4-4 with a homer. Beeler added another one. Dale Walters had a homer. Hall had two homers, Hightower, Tot Powers, Schuck and McCraw one each for Sunbelt. The 17 runs in the bottom of the fourth of the 33-13 run-rule romp for Lighthouse over Wessel in the winners bracket finals saw homers by Frizzell, Elliott, Davis, Rickard and Rose and a triple and single each by Mendoza and Kirk Stafford. It was Mendoza’s second triple of the game. Rickard had a 375-foot line-drive double earlier in the big inning and Huggins and Striebel each had two singles. Rickard and Rose each homered earlier. So did Frizzell, Ergle and Higginbotham. Sunbelt’s 30-14 ouster of Backstop saw two 1-2-3 innings, including the first, but a 10, 9 and 9. Jeff Hall drew 4 of Sunbelt’s 12 walks. Jimmy Powers had four hits, Britt Hightower, Bobby Gilbert and Johnny McCraw two homers each Bob Van Erem was 4-4 with 2 HRs for Backstop. For three games, he was 10-for-11 with 8 HRs. Steele’s was within 9-10 and 12-13 before Sierra pushed across five runs without a home run in the top of the seventh and won 18-13. Fredieu and Beeler had homers and Kendrick an inside-the-parker for Sierra. Big Randy Kortokrax had three Steele’s HRs. Lighthouse had an easy 14-2 win over Backstop, with Davis and Rickard hitting the only two homers. Mendoza was 4-4. Wessel got a 3-runner from Tim Lins on, a solo and two other hits from Howie Krause and a grand slam and a 380-foot line-drive double from Brett Helmer in the 20-19 upset of Sierra. But the big key a 4-4 game from Jim Burbrink and a 3-3 game from Randy Vollmer batting in the 10 and 11 spots. Garris, Beeler and Fredieu socked successive HRs for Sierra in the bottom of the seventh, but the 5-run rally was one short. Steele’s 30-10, 4-inning elimination of Team TPS saw a whopping 12 home runs — two each by Jim Devine, Rod Hughes, Derek Jones, Jeff Ott and Keith Brockman and one each by Dennis Pierce and Dal Beggs. Devine also had a triple and single. Jones, Brockman and Beggs also went 4-4. Steele’s hit for 12 runs on 4 HRs in the second for a 15-7 lead, then produced the run rule with nine runs on 4 HRs in the bottom of the fourth. Wallace was 3-3 with 2 HRs (his team’s only two) and Nevitt had an opposite field triple and a single for Team TPS. Sunbelt’s 16-5 win over O&S saw Hall go 4-4 with a 3-run HR. Jimmy Powers, McCraw and Hightower also homered. Derrick Williams had a triple (off the 360 mark) and a single for O&S. Backstop struck for six runs on three homers in the top of the first in the upending of Team TPS. Judson Jackson had a 2-runner, Melvin Mallernee a solo and Monty McCory a 3-runner. Van Erem and Burch homered in the third as Backstop led 8-3. Four homers (by Mike Shenk, Phil Jobe, Wallace and Todd Martin) pulled Team TPS even at 13-13 in the bottom of the seventh. ISA rules allow a baserunner put on second base in extra innings. It took a groundout and a sac fly for Backstop to score. Team TPS did not score, going 1-2-3 — all routine fly balls. Team TPS had routine 14 fly balls (or popups) in the game. A 2-run homer by Frizzell (he also homered, tripled and singled) and a 2-out RBI single by Rick Huggins gave Lighthouse a 26-24 lead vs. Steele’s . . . after Steele’s seized a 24-23 lead with nine runs in the bottom of the sixth as Jeff Ott hit a grand slam, Jim Devine a single and triple and Kortokrax and Hughes homers. However, Steele’s went 1-2-3 in the bottom of the seventh. Hughes had four hits, including another homer, and Dal Beggs had four hits, with a HR, for Steele’s. Kortokrax had another homer. Pierce and Brockman homered. Lighthouse had a 10-run fifth for a 23-13 lead. Davis had 2 HRs, Rose, Stafford and Higginbotham one each. Huggins had two hits in the 10-run inning, Higginbotham his HR and a single. Burbrink’s lefthanded pitching was the key in Wessel’s 15-10 reversal of Sunbelt, which scored five runs in the fifth, then drew blanks in the sixth and seventh. Jimmy Powers had Sunbelt’s only homer. A 3-run HR by Tom White in the sixth and a 2-runner by Dale Sensenig in the seventh made the difference. White also had a triple and another homer. Howie Krause had two HRs, Tim Linson and Chris Lashley one each. O&S enjoyed an early 9-1 lead vs. Sierra as Williams and Doug Berfeldt hit 3-run HRs, but Sierra enforced the run rule with 13 runs on 6 HRs in the bottom of the fifth. Garris hit his second and third HRs, Beeler his second. Fredieu, Everett and Kendrick also homered.

1998 ISA AA World Series Report

Chase won the ISA Class AA championship Sunday (Aug. 23) at the beautiful, new Diamond Plex park in Winter Haven, Fla., beating favored Wessel/Hague in two out of three meetings. Chuck Caviness’ team now has two ISA titles to its credit in 1998, having won the ISA Winter Nationals back in January in St. Petersburg, Fla. Jeff Hague was seeking his third ISA AA crown in four years, having won in 1995 and 1996. Chase won a winners bracket matchup vs. Wessel/Hague 36-19 as Jose Santiago had four homers and Jason Fleming three. Chase had a 13-run second inning and a 13-run sixth inning. A 2-run homer by Santiago enforced the run rule. Chase had two lopsided wins — 34-3 in three innings over Reece and 38-2 over N.A.S.T.Y. Boys in three innings. Wessel forced an extra game with a 39-38 comeback win over Chase. A 2-runner with one out by Joe Foley won the game as Wessel rallied for nine runs in the bottom of the seventh. Chase then won the deciding game by 33-11 in five innings. Wessel had to play four games on Sunday, eliminating Planet/New/TPS 43-18 in three innings (Wessel scored 24 runs on 11 HRs in the first inning) and N.A.S.T.Y. Boys 37-18 in five innings. Chase’s veteran shortstop Randy Romagna, who sparkled on defense as well as at the plate, was the MVP selection. He went 21-for-27 with seven home runs. Wessel’s Tom White was the home run leader with 14 in 7 games on the 300-foot fences. He sizzled with 30-for-36. Wessel left fielder Dale Sensenig was named for the defensive award. Other leading hitters for Chase included Fleming at 26-31 with 11 homers, Santiago 24-29 with 7 homers, Kenny Carver 23-32 with 8 homers, Paul Brannon 21-30 with 8 homers, Tim Williamson 23-31 with 6 homers, Chris Chilton 22-29 and Larry White 21-26. Mark Weaver had a 5-for-5 game with a triple and three homers for 10 RBI in the final game. White and Brett Helmer had three big games on Sunday for Wessel. Each went 15-for-17 with 8 homers. Helmer wound up with 12 homers, while teammates Howie Krause and Tim Linson each had 11. Krause went 27-for-33, Linson 27-35 and Sensenig 23-for-32. Helmer had a tough Saturday and he was 1-for-3 in the last game, winding up 24-for-37, and seeing his on-base percentage skid to .772. He slipped from third to fifth on the OBA list. The veteran White sports a .792 OBA (Jeff Wallace of Team TPS is the pace-setter at .804) and has moved into the No. 6 slot in home runs with 156. White, Wallace and Helmer were teammates on the SoJern/TPS team out of New Jersey last season. N.A.S.T.Y. and Planet/New finishing third and fourth was quite a surprise. N.A.S.T.Y. moved through the winners bracket with a 24-9 win over Tiger/ChecKing, a 19-13 win over Long Haul and a 30-10, 4-inning win over Planet/New, which had won over Resmondo 19-4 and O&S 19-10. Planet eliminated Reece 51-45 . . . after trailing 38-14 going into the bottom of the third inning. Planet scored 22 runs in the bottom of the third. Long Haul and Reece tied for fifth. Long Haul eliminated Brandon’s 8-4 and Minnesota rival O&S 27-11 in 5 innings before losing to Wessel 33-28 when Wessel broke loose for 12 runs in the bottom of the sixth inning. Reece ousted Tiger 28-20 and Resmondo 35-20 in 5 innings. Chase was a 32-16 winner over Brandon’s in an opening round matchup of North Carolina teams. Several Brandon’s players were with Chase at the start of the season. “I knew we had to put it together sooner or later,” Caviness said at the awards ceremony. Chase and Wessel are now 3-3 vs. each other this season. Eleven of the 12 entries here were ranked in the Supreme Softball Top 25. Wessel was sixth, Reece seventh, Chase 10th, O&S 11th, Long Haul 12th, Brandon’s 14th, Resmondo 16th, Tiger 21st, N.A.S.T.Y. 22nd, Planet 23rd and Woerner tied for 25th. Woerner opened with a 30-19 win over Mizuno/DeMarini, then lost to Wessel 42-27 in 5 innings and Resmondo 38-28. O&S eliminated Mizuno 19-4 in 5 innings. Mizuno is a Florida team that won the state ISA and USSSA Class A titles. Roy Eppley, once one of the top hitters in the major ranks, is a member of the Mizuno/DeMarini team. The all-tournament team included Romagna, White, Chilton, Santiago, Williamson and Fleming of Chase, White, Krause, Linson and Foley of Wessel, plus Dennis Turner, Mike Lane and Rick Meyer of N.A.S.T.Y. Boys and Otis Barnes and Vern Hensley of Planet/New. Barnes went 19-for-23, while Hensley was 16-for-20 with 7 HRs. Meyers batted .656 and Lane and Turner .650 each.

1998 ISA A Report

W.E.T., a home town team, went undefeated to become the surprise winner of the ISA Class A championship Aug. 28-30 in Niceville, Fla.

W.W. Gay of Gainesville, Fla., was a surprise second-place finisher, but was drowned by W.E.T. — 17-2 in the finals of the winners bracket and 29-4 in the championship finale.

Adams/RSH/Worth of Ridgeland, Miss., and Smokes/TPS of Maryland were considered the co-favorites. Adams suffered both of its losses to Gay (30-26 and 32-15). Smokes, winner of the big Pif tournamet in Canada over the July 4th weekend, lost to W.E.T. 25-24 in the third round, then later was eliminated 34-18 to McDonald’s of Georgia and wound up in a tie for ninth place.

Adams was third, while Harrison’s/Worth of Virginia was fourth. Harrison’s was ousted 38-34 by Adams after eliminating Woerner/Hudson’s/TPS of Alabama 22-21. Herrin/TPS of Georgia shared fifth place with Harrison’s, being ousted 20-18 by Adams after kayoing McDonald’s 27-14.

Jonesboro/TPS of Tennessee finished in a tie for ninth after being ousted by Woerner 33-27.

Harrison’s was knocked into the losers bracket by W.E.T. 20-18, after wins over Woerner (32-30) and Herrin (19-16).

W.W. Gay beat Jonesboro 37-32, Mizuno/DeMarini of Florida 25-8 and Lafayette (La.) Fire 44-16.

One of Adams’ wins was 31-11 over Mississippi rival Fast Eddie’s.

Journeyman of Michigan and Pov’s of Minnesota went out early. Lafayette Fire beat Journeyman 12-11, while Pov’s lost to W.E.T. 25-22 in the second round.

Journeyman was eliminated by Mizuno 43-37, while Pov’s was ousted by Jonesboro 36-28. Mizuno was eliminated by Herrin 35-30.

The MVP selection was W.E.T. outfielder Chad Roberts. He went 20-for-24 with nine home runs.

Veteran John Hicks came out of retirement to hit eight homers for W.E.T., five of them in one game — the 20-18 win over Harrison’s.

The Outstanding Defensive Player award went to W.W. Gay outfielder Mike Thomas. Roberts and Hicks were joined on the all-tournament team by teammates Shane Frederick and pitcher Dan Hensley.

W.W. Gay boss N.C. Ryals credited Hensley with “a great job of pitching.” Other all-tournament spots went to Mike Thomas, Ken Clark, John Thomas and Billy Eurice of W.W. Gay, Russ Tatum and Craig Upton of Adams and Chuck Boyle and Charles Prekel of Harrison’s. Eurice tied for most HRs, matching Roberts’ total of nine.
