Cap tip Kevin Nishinaga.

The player is Masato Akamatsu of the Hiroshima Carp and if you are not Peter Parker after a radioactive spider bite, this is almost an impossible catch. Even he is tickled by his grab.

Mile High Fastpitch Tournament

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

Video courtesy of our friend in Colorado, Randy Davenport, with this note:

The 2010 Mile Fastpitch Team’s ASA Invitational fund-raising tournament was played under our beautiful Colorado skies this past weekend, with the Rage, Bohicas and Cobras finishing the event 1st through 3rd respectively. Fastpitch softball is truly a great game that involves fierce and challenging competition, excellent camaraderie amongst teammates and opponents, and, mostly, it is a sport that contains a special, vital, and continually fertile ground where friendships and memories can grow and thrive.

This brief video of the tournament is dedicated to the memory of Doug Zimmerman (1956-2010) who passed away on Sunday, July 11, 2010. The thoughts and prayers of the entire Colorado Fastpitch Softball community go out to all of Doug’s family and friends.

Doug may be gone, but he won’t be forgotten.

Editor’s note: We’ve bumped this back to the top in order to credit the camera man. We should also have said “Name that cameraman”. It was Victor Reyes, of the Santa Cecelia/Mexicali team.

Best of the West News coverage on local TV

Saturday, June 5th, 2010

The 20th annual Best of the West tournament was featured by KEYTV, the local ABC affiliate in Santa Barbara, California.

Click here to view their video and to view their original news story, excerpted below.

The Best of the West is celebrating its 20th anniversary, with some of the best men’s fast-pitch players in the world taking part.

Ten teams from the U.S., Canada, New Zealand, Mexico and South America are involved in the longest running open tournament in California. Two berths in the 2010 ISC World Tournament will be awarded to the two top finishers.

Witnessing the tournament is a marvel in hand/eye coordination as some of the pitchers throw about 85 m.p.h., which would be equivalent to 100 m.p.h. in baseball.
