2013 ASA Men’s Major Fast Pitch Nationals

2013 held at South Bend, Indiana on August 1-August 4.


Champion – Hill United Chiefs, Machias, New York
Runner Up – NY Gremlins, Clifton Park, New York (27-5)


NY Gremlins lost the winner’s bracket finals to Hill United Chiefs 2-1 and then sat and watched the California A’s defeat the Jarvis Travelers 7-4. The Gremlins had to defeat the A’s to get another crack at the Chief.  But California A’s had to withdraw due to lack of pitching and New York was awarded a 7-0 forfeit win in the loser’s bracket finals.  They came up on the short end of the score in the finals.  The Gremlins led 2-0 going into the bottom of the 6th inning behind the pitching of Sean Whitten. After the Chiefs scored 2 runs to tie the score, Andrew Kirkpatrick came in to pitch in relief and then in the bottom of the 7th inning, gave up  the winning run with two outs to lose the Championship Game (3-2) and give the title to the Chiefs.  This completed a (5-0) run through the tournament for the Chiefs. Grant Patterson started the game for the Chiefs and went 5 innings. Mitch Hardy pitched the 6th inning and then Adam Folkard came in the 7th inning and struck out two batters to gain the win.

Andrew Kirkpatrick,  (2-1, 1 Shutout, 18 IP, 28 K) Sean Whitten (1-0, 6 IP, 16 K) and Sean Cleary (1-1 10 IP, 17K) led the Gremlins pitching staff.
