2016 ASA Men’s Super Slow Pitch Nationals

2016 held at Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.


Champion – O&S Cattle/Mr. D’s, Stillwater, Minnesota
Runner Up – West Coast Monsta, Calimesa, California


Forced into the “if-game” after dropping a 36-27 decision to WC Monsta in the Championship Game, O&S Cattle/Mr. D battled through to claim the 2016 Super Slow Pitch National Championship ASA/USA Softball announced today. The bats came alive for O&S Cattle/Mr. D as the team combined for 12 hits en route to claiming the title in a 22-9 win over WC Monsta in the “if-necessary” game. In their first meeting of the day in the Championship Game, O&S Cattle/Mr. D took an early lead in the top of the first inning, capitalizing on a two-run home run and a pair of singles. WC Monsta responded in the bottom of the frame, cutting the lead to one run after plating three runners off a home run and double. WC Monsta would take the lead in the bottom of the second for good, bringing an additional five runners across the plate to make it an 8-5 lead. O&S Cattle/Mr. D plated two in the top of the third inning to cut WC Monsta’s lead to 8-7, but the west coast squad would explode for 11 hits to score 10 runs and extend their lead to 18-7. Five runs in the top of the fourth inning by O&S Cattle/Mr. D kept the game interesting as WC Monsta led by four as they stepped to the plate in the bottom of the fourth. That close lead would soon become a large one as WC Monsta again utilized timely hitting to push their lead to 16 runs. Twelve runs in the top of the fifth inning by O&S Cattle/Mr. D brought the game within four runs. Three solo home runs started out the offensive burst before four more shots over the fence brought the game to a 28-24 lead for WC Monsta. Three home runs by WC Monsta in the bottom of the fifth regained the team a comfortable 10-run lead. Both teams would plate runs in the sixth inning, with WC Monsta holding a 36-27 lead as O&S Cattle/Mr. D headed to the plate for their final at-bat. Getting two quick outs, O&S Cattle/Mr. D would get two singles but a fly ball to centerfield ended the game with WC Monsta forcing the “if-necessary” game. In the “if-necessary” game, O&S Cattle/Mr. D got an early 4-0 lead and kept WC Monsta off the board to complete the first inning of play. WC Monsta would return the favor in the top of the second, keeping O&S Cattle/Mr. D from adding to their lead while tacking on a run of their own to make it a 4-1 game. O&S Cattle/Mr. D added to their lead in the top of the third with a solo home run and an RBI double before WC Monsta cut it to 6-4 after scoring three in the bottom of the frame thanks to a three-run blast. A six-run fifth inning helped expand O&S Cattle/Mr. D’s lead before tacking on another three runs in the top of the sixth to make it an 18-4 game. WC Monsta’s bats came alive briefly in the bottom of the sixth, plating three runs on a pair of home runs and singles. That offensive spurt would not be enough, however, as O&S Cattle/Mr. D would score another four runs in the top of the seventh while keeping WC Monsta to just one run in their final at-bat. For O&S Cattle, Greg Connell had one of of his usual incredible tournaments (17-26, .654, 10 HR, 18 RBI, 17 Runs). Bubba Mack chipped in with a 18-24 (.750) with 8 HR, 18 RBI, 17 Runs. For the Monstas, Chente Granados (24-33, .727, 7 HR, 20 RBI, 21 Runs),  Ryan Dacko (22-31, .710, 13 HR, 26 RBI, 21 Runs), Ryan McClanahan (8 HR, 19 RBI), Pilar Amaya (7 HR, 17 RBI) and Jared Hunt (6 HR, 21 RBI) led the onslaught as WC Monstas hit 73 HR, in their 7 games.

2016 ASA Women’s Open Slow Pitch Nationals

2016 held at Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.


Champion: Derby Girls/ASP/Combat, Kent, Washington
Runner Up: Khaos, Harmony, Florida


The Derby Girls scored four runs in the 4th inning to put the final game out of reach for Khaos. The final was 8-1 as Brooke Connell provided the only offense Khaos had with a 3-4 performance along with driving in the only run for the Florida girls. Melissa Perez (15-21, .714, 3 RBIs, 8 Runs), Tara Salcedo (14-22, .636, 5 RBIs, 6 Runs), Amanda Pantley (15-19, .789, 11 RBIs, 6 Runs) and Julie Wisniewski all had 2 hits for the Derby Girls. Bri Benesh (8-12, .667) collected 2 RBIs. Derby Girls/ASP/Combat outscored Khaos 17-3 to hand them back-to-back losses and secure the Women’s Open National title at ASA Hall of Fame Complex Sunday. Despite dropping a 15-5 decision to Khaos Saturday evening, Derby Girls/ASP/Combat defeated Smurf-U, 13-3, to earn a spot in the Championship Game and call for a rematch themselves. While Khaos hung in the game, Derby Girls/ASP/Combat pulled away late for the 9-2 victory. Derby Girls/ASP/Combat’s Dowling was solid at the plate, going 3-for-4 while driving in one and scoring three runs. Derby Girls/ASP/Combat saw four cross the plate in the first inning and proceeded to keep Khaos scorelss until they scored two in the fourth inning. However, it was not enough and Derby Girls/ASP/Combat would force the previously-undefeated team to play an “if-necessary” game for the Championship title. The final game of the tournament was almost déjà vu for Derby Girls/ASP/Combat. The Washington team never trailed after scoring four runs in the first on two doubles, an RBI single byJulie Wisniewski, and an RBI triple by Amanda Pantley. Derby Girls/ASP/Combat went on to score four runs in the fourth on a sacrifice fly byLaura Harms, a two-run single by Bri Benesh and an RBI single by Dowling. Khaos managed to score one in the fourth but in the end, it was Derby Girls/ASP/Combat who claimed the Women’s Open division title following a 8-1 victory.
