2011 ASA Men’s Major Fast Pitch Nationals

2011 held at South Bend, Indiana on August 4-7.


Champion – Broken Bow/Jarvis Travelers, Broken Bow, Nebraska
Runner Up – Chicago/NY Gremlins, Clifton Park, New York


The championship final between the Travelers and the Gremlins was called off early when heavy rain flooded their field. The Gremlins finished with a 5-1 record while the Travelers ended up at 4-1. The Travelers trounced the Gremlins 11-2 Saturday afternoon. The Gremlins dropped down to the championship final of the losers bracket where they beat the Explorers 7-5. That sent them into the championship game against the unbeaten Travelers on Sunday morning, this time winning 11-9.

2003 ASA Men’s Major Fast Pitch Nationals

2003 held at Midland, Michigan on July 10-13.


Champion – The Farm Tavern, Madison, Wisconsin
Runner Up – Circle Tap, Denmark, Wisconsin (48-13)


Farm Tavern went undefeated (5-0) and beat Circle Tap (5-2) in final behind the pitching of Todd Martin (3-0), who won his 3rd game of the tournament. Jason Hanson hit a home run for the Farm Tavern. Hanson put Farm out ahead on a lead-off homer in the first inning and Farm expanded its margin to 4-0 on RBI singles by Todd Budke, Cliff Widsom and Smet. All of the runs in the second were unearned off losing pitcher Rob Scheller (2-1).

Circle Tap closed the gap to 4-1 when it scored its first run in the third on an RBI double by Delarwelle, bringing across Jess Ellestad who had walked after one out. In the fourth inning with one out, Circle Tap pitcher Rob Scheller and his catcher, Don Garvey, were both ejected from the game by home plate umpire Bryan Smith. Garvey went first and Scheller, who threw his glove after Garvey was ejected, followed.

Trevor Wardell replaced Scheller on the mound and third baseman Todd Malnory went behind the plate. Malnory, however, didn’t last long as he was ejected in his next at-bat for arguing a called third strike.

Chad Huebner replaced Malnory behind the plate to start the fifth inning and Circle Tap coach Wayne Kruger even inserted himself into the lineup at first. Circle Tap decided to call the game after batting in the sixth inning so it wouldn’t miss their airplane flight.

Scheller was the loser, hurling 3 1/3 innings, allowing six hits and one earned run. Wardell hurled 2 2/3 innings and gave up one hit. He fanned two. Budke of Farm Tavern had three hits in four at-bats.

A record 62 HR were hit by the 22 teams entered.

Gerald Muizelaar, Kelso; Jody Henniger, Fed Lock and Trevor Wardell, Circle Tap (all were 3-1). Wardell’s pitching mate, Rob Scheller was 2-1 for Circle Tap.
