2002 ASA Men’s Major Fast Pitch Nationals

2002 held at St. Joseph, Missouri on July 31-August 4.


Champion – Frontier Players Casino, St. Joseph, Missouri
Runner Up – Farm Tavern, Madison, Wisconsin


For the third year in a row, the St. Joseph Casino Players captured the ASA men’s crown. As the Los Angeles Lakers can tell you, “three-peat” is no easy feat. Behind the great pitching of Michael White, the Frontier Players Casino sent The Farm Tavern to the loser’s bracket, 6-3 Saturday afternoon. It was not long, however, before the Farm eliminated third place Fedlock Falcons, 8-0, and returned to the championship game.

With that momentum, the Farm staked their pitchers to a 4-0 lead. St. Joseph’s fought back to tie the game 4-4 in the 7th, on an RBI single by tournament MVP Mike Dryer. Kerry Shaw then delivered the big blow, a 2 run, game winning homer for all the marbles. Paul Alger was the losing pitcher for the Farm.

Frontier Players Casino was known as Meierhoffer’s in 2000.
