2019 ASA Men’s A Slow Pitch Nationals

2019 held at Drake’s Creek Park in Hendersonville, Tennessee on August 17-18, 2019.


Champion – Thunder/EGL Foundation/Gillies Softball, Gladewater, Texas
Runner Up – Precision/H.Auto/Sprizzi, Lindenhurst, Illinois


An undefeated run at the 2019 USA Softball Men’s Class A Slow Pitch National Championship earned Thunder/E.G.L. Foundation/Gillies Softball the title of National Champion. Defeating Precision/H.Auto/Sprizzi 21-12 in the Championship Game, it was the second meeting between the two teams in the last 12 hours after a winners’ bracket finale went well into the midnight hour but ultimately ended with the same result: a Thunder victory.

Led by Tournament MVP Kyle Pearson, Thunder outscored opponents 108-66 on their path to winning the title with two of their four wins coming by way of the run-rule.

Precision got out to an early lead in the top of the first inning with back-to-back solo home runs and a two-run shot that gave them a four-run edge. Thunder made contact with the ball in the bottom of the frame, but nothing made it through the gaps and the team was kept off the board.

Precision added to their lead with a pair of runs in the top of the second inning, but a three-run home run by Brian McBryde cut Precision’s lead to 6-3 after two complete innings.

Thunder took the lead in the bottom of the third and never looked back as the team drove in 18 runs over the course of the next four innings of play. A pair of two-run home runs and two solo blasts gave Thunder the 9-6 lead.

Precision brought the game within one run in the top of the fourth inning with a solo home run and RBI single, but Thunder added two more to their run total, putting them up 11-8.

The offenses were silent in the fifth inning as a two-run home run by Precision and a solo home run by Thunder were all either side could muster at the plate.

Precision was kept off the board for the second time in the game in the top of the sixth, but Thunder put the game away with nine runs in the bottom of the frame. Two singles drove in two runs and a grand slam by Josh Fyffe put the home team up by eight runs. The offense continued with a three-run home run by Shannon Smith.

Down by 11 runs headed to their last at-bat of the game, Precision went out swinging with back-to-back singles, but a fly ball kept the runners at bay. A double by Chente Granados brought the runners home and a single from Brad Lunda put runners on the corners, but a pop fly and line drive ended the game with Thunder earning the 21-12 win.

McBryde and Fyffe led Thunder at the plate, both driving in five runs with a pair of home runs.

How the teams made it to the finals

Thunder landed in the Championship Game after going 3-0 through bracket play. Challenged in their first contest of the tournament, Thunder narrowly edged Dan Smith/Sonnys 30-28. With the help of a 14-run third inning, Thunder’s offense was limited to just one run through the last three innings of play.

A 32-16 (five inning) run-rule over Monsta Athletics/Black Sheep put Thunder in the winners’ bracket finale. Another explosive inning, this time a 13-run second inning, helped the squad take the lead early. Cory Briggs drove in eight runs off three home runs while Smith’s six RBI and two home runs led the offense.

Facing off against Precision with the winner advancing to the Championship, Thunder’s offense exploded for a 25-10 (five innings) win. Big offensive-innings, including 11 runs in the first, seven in the fourth and six in the fifth, helped the Thunder capture their second run-rule victory.

For Precision, a pair of one-run games landed the team in the winners’ bracket final. The team escaped with a 31-30 win over Anarchy/SIS/OA Apparel in their first game of the tournament after Travis Clark drove in the game-winning run. A game-winning single by Jeff Keske helped Precision to their second walk-off victory, this time a 34-33 win over TDB/FAI.

After dropping the 25-10 decision to Thunder, Precision faced Monsta Athletics in the third-place game where the offense erupted for a 23-7 (five inning) win. A 14-run outing in their first at-bat of the game set the tone as grand slams by Jeremy Yates, who was named Tournament Batting Champion, and Chente Granados led the offense.

2019 ASA Men’s Super Slow Pitch Nationals

2019 held at Drakes Creek Park in Hendersonville, Tennessee on August 15-16, 2019.


Champion – H. Auto/RDD/Sprizzi/S&S/Easton, Le Sueur, Minnesota
Runner Up – Dan Smith/Menosse/Steven Smith/FAI, San Jose, California


H. Auto/RDD/Sprizzi/S&S/Easton repeated as USA Softball Super Slow Pitch National Champion after narrowly edging Dan Smith/Menosse/Steven Smith/FAI 30-28 in the Championship Game.

After cruising to three run-rule victories through bracket play, H. Auto was met by a gritty Dan Smith team that battled through the losers’ bracket after dropping their first contest of the tournament. The team won five-consecutive games today to earn a spot in the Championship contest, ultimately falling just two runs shy of forcing an “if-necessary” game.

H. Auto took an early lead as the visiting team, putting up four runs on the board in the first inning while Dan Smith tallied just one. Both squads were nearly even in the second inning as a nine-run outing by H. Auto and a 10-run inning by Dan Smith kept the game interesting at 13-11, H. Auto.

Dan Smith took the lead in the bottom of the third inning, one that they held until the sixth inning, exploding for nine runs while limiting H. Auto to just four in the top of the third. Both squads managed just four runs apiece through the next two innings of play until H. Auto’s offense came alive in the top of the sixth to take the lead for good.

A leadoff double by Kyle Pearson put an early base runner on for H. Auto. A fly out and sac fly quickly retired the next two batters, but Tournament MVP Travis Clark kept the offense alive with a single to left. Bubba Mack sent a ball out of the park for two runs, Steele Lewis tripled and Chente Granados hit a two-run shot to give H. Auto a 27-24 lead.

Dan Smith brought the game within one run after Argen Dodds sent out a two-run home run in the bottom of the sixth.

With the game headed to the seventh inning, Dan Smith looked to have the advantage after getting H. Auto to fly out and strikeout for the first two outs, but the visiting team’s offense could not be stopped. A two-run home run by Pearson and a solo shot by Jeremy Yates extended their lead to 30-26.

Trailing by four, a two-run home run by Steven Lloyd looked to spark a two-out rally, but a fly ball to right field ended the game with H. Auto taking the 30-28 win.

Clark and Pearson crushed it at the plate for H. Auto, each picking up six RBI with Clark hitting three home runs and Pearson sending out two. Yates also sent three balls out of the park, driving in five runs with Mack bringing in four runs.

For Dan Smith, Dodds added seven RBI to his stats for the tournament, hitting three home runs while Lloyd and Jon Nelson each hit out two.

How the teams made it to the finals

H. Auto landed in the Championship Game after going 3-0 through bracket play. In their first contest of the tournament, H. Auto took advantage of a 12-run, second inning in a 25-4 (four inning) win over Heartland Investors. Mack had seven RBI while three batters had multi-home run performances.

A 26-1 (five inning) win over Anarchy/SIS/OA Apparel earned H. Auto their second run-rule win of the Super Slow Pitch National Championship. Clark limited Anarchy to just six hits in the win while helping himself out at the plate with five RBI.

H. Auto earned their spot in the Championship Game with a 27-6 (four inning) win over TDB. Clark once again had a phenomenal game at the plate, sending out four home runs while Wegman led the team with six RBI.

For Dan Smith, an opening-game loss to Anarchy sent them to the losers’ bracket where they would battle their way to the Championship Game. A 35-27 win over OC/Drip City/FD, a 12-9 victory over Heartland Investors, a 30-22 win over Ts 13/Monsta/CTE and a 20-3 (five inning) run-rule in a rematch with Anarchy brought the team within one game of the Championship contest.

Facing off against TDB, who dropped the winners’ bracket finale against H. Auto a game prior, Dan Smith took advantage of a 12-run first inning en route to a 28-24 win. Playing textbook softball, Dan Smith only scored six runs by way of the long ball in the win.
