The 2021 USA Softball Men’s Major Fast Pitch National Championship kicked off today as the top men’s fast pitch players from across the country were welcomed to the Softball Capital of the World® for the second-straight year. A total of 15 teams began their quest to the coveted National Championship title including the AWP Lumberjacks (Anna Schmitt), Bar on the Avenue Buzz (Justin Colombo), Bear Bottom Lodge (Codi Pannebecker), Circle Tap Dukes (Dean Kane), Fishers Softball (Sean King), Hallman Twins (Ron Hackett), Hill United Chiefs (Jeff Ellsworth), Kegel Black Knights (Mike Lewis), Marchio Sausage Co.

Six teams advanced to the winner’s bracket with AWP Lumberjacks garnering two wins in the opening day and Hill United Chiefs, Circle Tap Dukes, Omma Tigres, Kegal Black Knights and NY Gremlins each posting one win to advance to winner’s bracket contests tomorrow morning.  The remaining nine teams will battle it out in the loser’s bracket with the playing field narrowing to four teams leading into Championship Sunday.

In the first game of the day on OGE Energy Field, Marchio Sausage Co. posted a come-from-behind walk-off victory over Bear Bottom Lodge after falling behind 5-0 through the first three innings. Marchio Sausage Co. began chipping away at the BBL lead with a three-run third inning before tying the game in the bottom of the seventh. After holding the BBL offense to a scoreless at-bat in the top of the eighth, Marchio Sausage Co. pieced together three singles from Chase Thompson, David Reiter and Sam Nieman to plate the game-winning run in walk-off fashion. The Marchio Sausage Co. offense combined for 13 hits while the pitching staff of Cody Gibbons and Joel Cooley tallied six strikeouts in the win. The walk-off victory advanced the Marchio Sausage Co. to the 8 p.m. winner’s bracket contest where they suffered a 7-0 loss to Hill United Chiefs to drop to the loser’s bracket.

Posting a 9-0 shutout over the Midland Explorers and a 5-1 win over the Hallman Twins was the AWP Lumberjacks, advancing them to tomorrow’s 4 p.m. winner’s bracket matchup against the Hill United Chiefs.

The 2020 Men’s Major Fast Pitch National Champions, Kegel Black Knights, kicked off the 2021 tournament with a 7-2 win over Fishers Softball while the Circle Tap Dukes pulled out a 2-0 shutout over Rio Grande Senators to pit the two winners against each other in an 8 a.m. winner’s bracket contest tomorrow morning. Claiming a 14-1 win in the 8 p.m. game on INTEGRIS Field was the NY Gremlins who will face the Omma Tigres in the winner’s bracket tomorrow morning after posting a 12-3 win over Bar on the Avenue – Buzz 2021.

Only four teams remain after Day Two of the 2021 USA Softball Men’s Major Fast Pitch National Championship with Championship Sunday kicking off at 8 a.m. tomorrow morning. Advancing through the winner’s bracket with an undefeated record was the NY Gremlins, clinching their spot in the Championship game after defeating Hill United Chiefs 3-2 in their third straight win of the day. Hill United will take on the winner of Kegel Black Knights and Circle Tap Dukes, who will face off in the loser’s bracket tomorrow at 8 a.m. CT on OGE Energy Field.

 

The NY Gremlins had a strong showing in the winner’s bracket, edging their three opponents of the day in competitive contests. Combining for a total of nine runs in their contests, it was timely hitting and solid defensive work that allowed the Gremlins to shine. Ladislao Malarczuk played a key role with a 6-for-7 day at the plate, scoring three runs and hitting the go-ahead home run to give the Gremlins the win in their first game of the day. The Gremlin pitching staff dominated in the circle giving up only two earned runs and striking out 25 batters in three games with Andrew Kirkpatrick accounting for 14 K’s. The NY Gremlins will play for the title of the 2021 Men’s Major Fast Pitch National Championship tomorrow at 12 p.m. CT on OGE Energy Field.

 

In their first game of the day, Hill United Chiefs took down the AWP Lumberjacks 4-1 after falling behind in the second inning. They quickly answered back, however, when a double from Steve Mullaley scored Brett Larson in the bottom of the frame. After tying the game 1-1, Hill United continued to tack on runs, scoring in three of the next four innings to seal the victory. The Chiefs failed to string enough hits together in their next game as they fell to the NY Gremlins 3-2, suffering their first loss of the tournament. Hill United Chiefs will play on OGE Energy Field tomorrow at 10 a.m. CT in the loser’s bracket semi-final game for a chance to compete for the trophy.

Suffering a 2-1 loss in their first game of the day against the Circle Tap Dukes, the Kegel Black Knights won three straight games in the loser’s bracket to send them to Championship Sunday. Marchio Sausage Co. put up an impressive fight by winning two back-to-back 10-inning games before being knocked off by the Knights, 5-2. In their run through the loser’s bracket, the Knights also sent home the Hallman Twins in a three inning, 18-1 run-rule victory. The Kegel Black Knights scored a total of 32 runs on 36 hits in their four games of the day.

The Circle Tap Dukes won their first game of the day but were sent to the loser’s bracket after a 3-0 loss to the NY Gremlins. It was there they were met by the San Antonio Glowworm who were on their fifth game of the day and had battled through the loser’s bracket with four straight wins. The Dukes took care of business though as Jorge Segura threw a complete game shutout with nine strikeouts. Circle Tap Dukes came out with a 9-0 victory over the Glowworms and will take on the Kegel Black Knights in a win-or-go-home game on Sunday morning at 8 a.m CT.

After losing two games in the double-elimination tournament, AWP Lumberjacks, Bar on the Avenue Buzz, Bear Bottom Lodge, Fishers Softball, Hallman Twins, Marchio Sausage Co., Midland Explorers, Omma Tigres, Ray Rays Sports Bar Misfits, Rio Grande Senators and San Antonio Glowworm were sent home today, ending their run in the 2021 Men’s Major Fast Pitch National Championship.

After three days of fierce competition, the NY Gremlins claimed the 2021 USA Softball Men’s Major Fast Pitch National Championship title with a 7-5 come-from-behind victory over the Hill United Chiefs. Dominating through bracket play, the Gremlins outscored their five opponents 30-9 while posting an undefeated record in route to their sixth Men’s Major Fast Pitch National Championship contest after finishing in second place last year.

To kick off Championship Sunday, the Kegel Black Knights defeated the Circle Tap Dukes 2-1 in a tight game to advance to the semi-finals. The Knights wasted no time in getting on the score board with a single, a walk, and smart baserunning to make it 1-0 in the bottom of the first. Both offenses remained quiet until Circle Tap Dukes got on the board in the fourth inning to tie the game 1-1. The Knights answered back with three singles of their own to plate another run and pull ahead 2-1 in the fifth inning. The score remained 2-1 through the next two innings of play as the Knights pitching staff successfully kept the Dukes off the base paths while combining for a total of 10 strikeouts to seal the victory.

The Kegel Black Knights went on to face the Hill United Chiefs in the semi-final contest but came up short in a 10-3 (five innings) loss. Both teams came out swinging with the Knights scoring two quick runs and the Chiefs using a handful of walks, singles, and a sac fly to plate four runs, putting them ahead 4-2 after one inning of play. The Chiefs extended their lead in the second inning with a RBI single from Steve Mullaley and a three-run home run from Blake Hunter. The Knights tacked on another run in the top of the third, but back-to-back groundouts ended the rally. Mullaley went 2-for-2 on the day with four RBI as the Chiefs kept their foot on the gas and walked away with a 10-3 run-rule victory to send them to the Championship game.

The final game of the tournament was an exciting matchup between the Hill United Chiefs and the undefeated NY Gremlins. After coming off a 10-run game, the Chiefs stayed hot with three home runs in the first two innings to give them an early 4-0 lead. The Gremlins got on the board in the bottom of the third but a pitching change would bring in Devon McCullough for the Chiefs who forced two pop outs to retire the Gremlins and hold the score 4-1, Chiefs. That lead didn’t hold long though, as a pair of walks and string of hits allowed the Gremlins to tie the game in the bottom of the fourth. Brad Ezekiel broke the tie in the fifth inning with his second home run of the game to put the Chiefs ahead 5-4. It looked as if the Chiefs would come out with the win until Ladislao Malarczuk drove a ball to left field and sped around the bases for a three-run inside-the-park home run to give the Gremlins a 7-5 lead heading into the seventh inning. The Gremlins shut down the Chiefs in the final three outs of the games with Andrew Kirkpatrick fanning his twenty-second batter of the tournament to seal the win and earn the Gremlins the 2021 USA Softball Men’s Major Fast Pitch National Championship title.

In ASA National Play, he hurled close to 20 shutouts and 8 no hitters, including 4 perfect games.

In ISC World play, he had another 21 shutouts with 3 no hitters and 2 perfect games.

In State and regional play, he probably had another 15 no hitters and 10 perfect games.

He saved his best for the big stage.  In what is still considered the greatest pitching performance of all time in the 1972 ISF World Championships, he pitched an incredible 1-0 win over New Zealand and its ace pitcher, Kevin Herlihy, in 20 innings. For 18 2/3 innings Stofflet had a perfect game before a batter was hit by a pitch. Stofflet had two of the five hits off Herlihy including the game’s only RBI with a single in the top of the 20th inning. Stofflet finished with an incredible 32 strikeouts in a game.

He was a pitcher with no equal and what people fail to realize it that he also had a career batting average of over .300.

2020 ASA Men’s Major Fast Pitch Nationals

2020 held at Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.


Champion – Kegel Black Knights, Amboy, Minnesota
Runner Up – Decatur ADM, Decatur, Illinois


The 2020 USA Softball Men’s Major Fast Pitch National Championship concluded on Sunday with the Kegel Black Knights taking home the Championship trophy following their 8-1 victory over the NY Gremlins. Finishing in fifth place with a 2-2 record one year ago at the 2019 edition, the Black Knights went on a 4-0 undefeated run and outscored opponents 51-21 at the USA Softball Hall of Fame Complex.

In the opening matchup on Championship Sunday, Bear Bottom Lodge bested Jay Blank Realty, 11-5. Bear Bottom Lodge’s Codi Pannebecker got the offense started with a two-run home run before a double from Juan Platner quickly made it 3-0 in the first inning. An error by Jay Blank Realty allowed another two runners to cross home, giving Bear Bottom Lodge a 5-0 lead heading into the bottom half of the frame. Bear Bottom Lodge continued to add to their lead and ultimately came out on top, 11-5, with Kevin Reber finishing 2-for-3 at the plate. From the circle, Phil Zimmerman and Julian Fernandez limited Jay Blank Realty to six hits and fanned seven batters.

Sunday’s Game 2 featured Bear Bottom Lodge and the NY Gremlins going head-to-head, with the Gremlins claiming a 6-1 victory and setting up a rematch with Kegel Black Knights for the Championship finale. The Gremlins jumped out to an early 4-0 lead in the first inning thanks to a two RBI double from Cam Schiller and two-run home run by Jonathan Lynch. The Gremlins put up another two runs in the sixth inning and despite Bear Bottom Lodge plating one in the bottom half, the final 6-1 score advanced them to the Championship match. Duane Weiler allowed one run on four hits and struck out five in his five innings of work, while Luis Amaya collected four strikeouts and allowed one hit in his two innings of relief.

Kegel Black Knights finished victorious at the Men’s Major Fast Pitch National Championship, defeating the NY Gremlins for the second time this weekend. Playing as the home squad, Kegel’s BJ Gulick and Chris Heinline hit back-to-back fly balls to put the Black Knights up, 2-0, in the first inning. Jonathan Lynch doubled to lead off the second inning, tagged up on a fly out to reach third and scored on a passed ball to cut the Gremlin deficit in half. Kegel’s offense stayed hot in the second inning as Zac Shaw sent a bases-loaded single up the middle to extend the lead, 4-1. A walk to Gulick loaded the bases once again and with a 2-2 count, Heinline smashed a ball to deep centerfield for a grand slam, putting the Black Knights in front of the Gremlins, 8-1. The score held until the fifth inning, when the Kegel Black Knights completed the 8-1 run-rule victory over the Gremlins to claim their first ever Men’s Major Fast Pitch National Championship title. BJ Hunhoff got the win, allowing one run on five hits and striking out two batters in five innings. Mike Lewis, Chris Heinline and BJ Gulick finished with two hits apiece, with tournament MVP Heinline leading the team with 5 RBI.
