1992 USSSA Men’s Major Slow Pitch World Series

1992 held at Daytona Beach, Florida.


Champion – Ritch’s-Superior/TPS, Windsor Locks, Connecticut
Runner Up – Williams/Worth, Houston, Texas


Ritch’s-Superior became the first team in Softball History to win the Grand Slam of Softball. They won the ISA, NSA, ASA and now the USSSA World Championships. They finished the season with an 80-9 record and will always be mentioned when considering the greatest teams of all time. The R-S Express won without their leading hitter, big Jim Fuller, who broke the single season batting average record sent by Mike Nye back in 1976. Nye batted .769. Fuller ended the season with a .774 batting average. Dave Steffen had 12 HRs among his 15 hits, was named the MVP. Ritch’s defeated Williams/Worth 25-22 in the championship game. Britt Hightower, who always comes up big in championship games, was 4-5 with 2 HRs. Ron Parnell hit 3 HRs, while Rick Weiterman, Doug Roberson and Darrell Beeler all had 3 hits in the game. Sterlin Ibrom was 4-4 for Williams/Worth. Carol Rose, Jon Meyers and Freddie Johnson all added two HRs each. Ritch’s out-homered Williams 12-11 and out hit them 24 to 23. Williams eliminated Spectrum 27-13 in the loser’s bracket final as John Grissom had 5 Home Runs in the game. A word of note; this was Cecil Whitehead’s 7th USSSA World Series Championship, more then any other player.
