1994 ASA Men’s Over 40 Slow Pitch Nationals

1994 held on August 26-28 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Champion – Capital X-Ray, Fairfax, Virginia
Runner Up – New Mech, Bloomington, Minnesota

Capital X-Ray of Fairfax, Virginia defeated New Mech of Bloomington 19-17 on Sunday in the finals of the ASA Over-40 slow pitch softball national tournament in Las Vegas.

“We were given up for dead a couple of times,” said Bubba Crismond, an outfielder for Capital X-Ray. “The first time was when we got thrown into the losers’ bracket.”

Capital X-Ray won two games before losing to New Mech.

“It came down to us having to play six games in one day on Sunday,” said Crismond, who hit .778 in 10 games. “We started at 7:30 in the morning winning seven inning games and played until 5:30 in the afternoon. I was exhausted toward the end, but playing on adrenaline. We won all six games we played”

En route to the title, Capital X-Ray beat the tournament’s five top rated teams. It defeated defending champion Nothdurft (Warren, Mich.) and New Mech twice.

“And in the final, we were down 10-1 to them in the third inning,” Crismond said. “We looked finished. But we had a seven run inning. Later, I hit a three run homer to put us ahead 11-10.”

“What a time to hit it. And we just kept rolling from there and won 18-13. And it was a big thrill catching a fly ball for the game’s final out. I was playing right center and had to move on the ball. It wasn’t that easy of a catch.”

“We were the last unbeaten,” New Mech manager and designated hitter Ron Ploog said. “We lost twice in the finals to Capital X-Ray from Virginia. The last game was 19-17 and we had two on and two out in the seventh inning and their right-center fielder made a nice catch on a line drive to end the game.”
