1995 ASA Super Men’s Slow Pitch National

1995 held at Waterloo, Iowa

Champion – Lighthouse/Worth, Stone Mountain, GA
Runner Up – Ritch’s-Superior/TPS, Windsor Locks, CT

Lighthouse did not have an easy task ahead of them. They just had to beat the top two ranked teams in the country to capture the ASA Super Nationals. They accomplished that feat as they defeated Bell Corp in the winner’s bracket semi-final. They then routed Ritch’s-Superior 31-9 in the winner’s bracket final. After Ritch’s defeated defending ASA champion, Bell Corp 29-19 in loser’s bracket final, Lighthouse was matched up against Ritch’s once again. The R-S Express beat Lighthouse 26-22 in the first final, setting up the “if” game. In the sixth inning, they hit four home runs to clinch the 25-18 championship victory over Ritch’s-Superior. Wendell Rickard, Derek Jones, Steve Craven and Mike Shenk were the four players that came through with the big bombs. Shenk had 3 home runs in the game.
