2022 ASA Men’s A Slow Pitch Nationals

2022 held at Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on September 4-5.


Champion – The Herd, Des Moines, Iowa
Runner Up – Rock Run Cabinetry/All Hustle/Silverbacks/Koval/Beloli, Topeka, Indiana


An exciting day at the ballpark concluded the 2022 Men’s Class A Slow Pitch National Championship today as The Herd walked away with an undefeated 5-0 record and the 2022 National Championship title. Facing off against Rock Run Cabinetry/All Hustle/Silverbacks/Koval/Beloli, The Herd put up 39 runs on 39 hits in the final game to come out on top and record its fifth-straight win of the tournament.

After playing four games on Day One, The Herd entered Monday’s competition already having clinched a spot in the Championship contest. Rock Run Cabinetry’s path to the title game was more daunting, however, as the squad fought its way through the loser’s bracket on Sunday evening to stay alive in the competition and make it to Monday. With timely hitting, enormous enthusiasm and a fight that never gave way, Rock Run Cabinetry pulled out back-to-back walk-off wins over Dirt Dogs/Alter Ego/KL&R/RDD and Dirty Vegas to make its way to the title game.

Both teams jumped out to a quick start in the Championship contest as Rock Run Cabinetry put up six runs while The Herd answered back with five of its own. Continuing to tack on to its lead, Arlis Miller, Marcus Miller and Kyle Miller blasted three home runs for Rock Run Cabinetry in the second inning to extend the score, 10-5, but it wouldn’t hold for long as The Herd unleashed with a 14-run performance in the bottom of the frame. Four home runs from Matt Schrange, Brett Rettenmeier, Chris Bauer and Quinn Cannoy in addition to a handful of base hits contributed to the rally as The Herd pulled ahead 19-10 after two innings of play.

Chipping away at the lead, Rock Run Cabinetry plated six runs through the next two innings while The Herd kept its foot on the gas with 12 more runs crossing the plate. With the score sitting at 31-16 after the fourth inning, Rock Run Cabinetry flipped a switch and came to life with six singles, a double and three home runs to score 11 runs and cut the lead 31-27. Answering back with two singles and three home runs of its own, The Herd tacked on six insurance runs to pad the score 37-27 heading into the sixth.

Refusing to back down, Rock Run Cabinetry continued to put pressure on the Herd, adding three more runs in the top of the sixth before The Herd put up another two in the bottom of the frame. With one last chance to score, Rock Run Cabinetry pieced together three singles and two doubles to plate four more baserunners, but were unable to muster anything else as a line out ended the game with The Herd claiming the 39-34 victory and the 2022 Men’s Class A Slow Pitch National Championship title.

With a 5-2 record through the tournament, the Rock Run Cabinetry offense combined for a .651 batting average with 238 runs on 243 hits. Kyle Miller led the squad – and the tournament – with 13 home runs followed closely by Arlis Miller with 10 while the two recorded team-leading .811 and .762 batting averages, respectively.

The Herd posted an undefeated 5-0 record this weekend with a .643 batting average, 155 hits and 149 runs scored. With 18 hits apiece, Alex Hovey and Zach Woodside led the team while five members of the squad recorded a batting average over .700.

THUNDER/CHOSEN EARN 2021 MEN’S CLASS A SLOW PITCH NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE WITH 41-33 WIN OVER KUT4 SPORTS/OL LIVINGSTON/D2E

Thunder/Chosen closed out Labor Day weekend at the USA Softball Hall of Fame Complex by earning the 2021 USA Softball Men’s Class A Slow Pitch National Championship title with a 41-33 victory over Kut4 Sports/Ol Livingston/D2E. Thunder posted an undefeated 5-0 record en route to the Championship hardware while scoring 30 or more runs in each of their contests with a combined total of 49 home runs on the weekend.

The first game of the day saw a loser’s bracket matchup between Chanticlear Pizza/Monsta and Dirt Dogs/FHS with a trip to the loser’s bracket finale on the line. A dramatic start to Championship Monday, the offensive duel saw 20 balls leave the park with both teams scoring at least one run every inning en route to a 37-36 walk-off win for Chanticlear. Dirt Dogs jumped on top early, taking a four-run lead in the top of first while holding Chanticlear to one. An explosive third inning from both offenses would bust the game open with Chanticlear taking a 26-17 lead after plating 18 runs while allowing 12 runs to score for the Dirt Dogs. The score continued to bounce back-and-forth through the remainder of the game, but a walk-off single from Quinn Cannoy would plate the winning run to advance Chanticlear to the final loser’s bracket contest against Kut4 Sports/Ol Livingston/D2E Trailers.

Dirt Dogs completed their run with a 5-2 record after dropping their first game of the tournament to Comatose/S2N/Monsta yesterday morningFighting their way through the loser’s bracket, the Dirt Dogs won five-straight games to advance to Championship Monday before falling to Chanticlear in the 37-36 contest.

Game two paired Chanticlear Pizza/Monsta and Kut4 Sports/Ol Livingston/D2E Trailers together, with the winner advancing to the Championship game against the undefeated Thunder/Chosen. The semi-final matchup came down to the final three outs with Kut4 Sports pulling out the 28-25 win with the help of a 10-run second inning and seven-run seventh inning. Trailing Chanticlear 25-21 in the top of the seventh, the Kut4 offense would string together three base hits and two home runs off the bats of Brandon Hooks and Andrew Calhoun to take the final lead of the game before issuing a 1-2-3 inning the bottom of the frame to send Chanticlear home with the third-place trophy.

The Championship contest saw a rematch between Thunder/Chosen and Kut4 Sports/Ol Livingston/D2E after going head-to-head in the winner’s bracket finale last night where Thunder took the 30-24 win. A similar outcome in the winner-take-all game, Thunder proved superior, this time with a 41-33 victory to earn the trophy. The two squads put on a show in the final matchup of the tournament, combining for a total of 74 runs and 20 long balls with Sean Geer (Kut4 Sports) sending three out of the park.

Thunder wasted no time in getting things started, plating seven runs on four homers in the top of the first. Quick to answer back, Kut4 Sports responded with seven runs of their own in the bottom of the inning to even the score, 7-7. The powerful offenses continued to shine for both teams through the second and third innings before Thunder took control in the top of the fourth, combining for 13 hits and three long balls to score 16 runs and put them on top, 34-21. Kut4 Sports cut the lead to six after responding with eight runs in the bottom of the inning, but Thunder tacked on four more in the top of the fifth to cushion their lead with two innings left to play. All the Kut4 Sports offense could muster through the remainder of the game was four runs in the bottom of the fifth after home runs from Josh Cardwell and Blake Green and base hits off the bats of Sean Greer, Kyle Mng, and Justin Tripp cut the Thunder lead, 38-33. Thunder offense wasn’t finished, though, adding three more to the board in the sixth and seventh innings while holding the Kut4 Sports offense scoreless through the final six outs to secure the 41-33 Championship win.

Josh Fyffe and Gregg Downing sent two balls out of the park in the win while Justin Gregory, Joshua Riley, Brian Renner, Kyle Pearson, Amilson Marquez and Austyn Dawe hit one home run apiece.

2020 ASA Men’s A Slow Pitch Nationals

2020 held at Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on September 4-5.


Champion –  Seminoles/TPS/NACSF.INC, Claremore, Oklahoma
Runner Up – Comatose/S2N/Monsta, Beloit, Wisconsin


  • MVP – Conner Murray, Seminoles/TPS/NACSF.INC
  • HR Champion – Billy Sanders, Program/Worth/JTLLC/3xtreme (11)
  • Batting Champion – Mike Jacobson, Comatose (.933)
  • Batting Champion – Joey Bulens, T’s 13 (.933)

The Championship Game might have started out slow, but it certainly did not end that way as Seminoles/TPS/NACSF.Inc claimed the 2020 USA Softball Men’s Class A Slow Pitch National Championship. The Seminoles went undefeated throughout the tournament, besting Comatose/S2N/Monsta 20-18 in the Championship finale that came down to the last batter.

Comatose jumped out to an early lead, driving in four runs in the top of the first while holding the Seminoles to a zero. Mitchell Dunse and Jim Dreikosen each homered in the first inning to bring the four runners across the plate for Comatose.

The Seminoles nearly returned the favor in the top of the second to Comatose, limiting the visiting team to just one run while driving in five of their own to tie up the game. The offense got started with a leadoff home run by Zane Trammell and an error on the defense allowed the next runner to reach second. A two-run shot by Kyndrich Doggett continued the momentum for the Seminoles with two outs and then another two-run blast from Oliver Odle made it an even 5-5 score.

Another home run from Dreikosen in the top of the third put Comatose on top by one run, but that lead did not last long as the Seminoles put up a run of their own via a Steven Smith homer to tie the game up again at six runs apiece.

Robert Guzman homered with two outs and an RBI single from Brett Wichman put Comatose back up by two runs in the top of the fourth. The game continued to be a nail biter in the bottom of the frame, as a two-run shot by Conner Murray tied up the game for the third time in the contest.

Comatose was kept off the board for the first time in the top of the fifth, giving the Seminoles a chance to take the lead. The home team did just that, driving in two to pull ahead by as many runs. A leadoff home run by Tim Bowser and RBI double from Smith drove in the lone runs of the fifth inning.

Comatose plated three in the top of the sixth and limited the Seminoles to just one to once again tie up the game after six complete innings. Headed into the seventh, the Comatose bats woke up as the team drove in seven runs to take a large lead. Three home runs and a fielder’s choice made a difference for Comatose, as the team went up 18-11 with the Seminoles headed to their final at-bat.

The Seminoles offense also came alive in their final at-bat as the team drove in nine runs for the walk off, 20-18 win. Hunter Ramirez, Smith and Jose Hernandez each homered to bring the game within three runs, and a single and error by the defense kept the offense rolling with two outs. Doggett drove in a run with a single up the middle, and a double by Murray tied up the game. Needing one run to win it all, the Seminoles did that and then some as Odle drove the ball over the left field fence for a two-run bomb to give his team the win.

Murray won MVP accolades after an impressive tournament in which he drove in 11 runs, scored 16 times and blasted four home runs.

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.
