Tito Workman's Softball History 2000-2013
Shelby, Ohio

THANK YOU!

Last Significant Update- August 1, 2017

To the fans of this website, some of you know who I am but to those of you that don’t, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Tito Workman and I’m the administrator of this website. I have ran this website since 2000.  

On September 14, 2013, after twenty-one seasons of playing softball I have decided to call it quits. The slow pitch game has changed so much since I first started playing in 1993 that it is no longer fun for me to play. I’m not a fan of the equipment that is used in the game today. I now realize that I’m in the minority and that the game of softball will not ever go back to the way it was when I first started playing. Plus participation is declining at a rapid rate each season and travel is increasing more and more. So, it’s time to step away.
 
I will miss seeing all the friends I made through the years and the camaraderie of being with my teammates. However, the bad outweighs the good and that is why I have decided to no longer play competitive softball.
 
I will not miss the sandbagging, cheating, traveling, marathon softball games, tournaments that are way behind schedule, dealing with the large egos and selfishness of many players today and all the softball drama in general.
 
Due to the feedback from many of you I will keep posting “blast from the past” articles every month. Good luck and best wishes to all my friends and former teammates who will continue to play. Thanks for supporting this website through the years.

DAYTON- Goodfellows Pub compiled a record of 5-2 over the weekend that was good enough for third place in the B/C bracket of the third annual Ohio Slugfest tournament. A total of 47 teams competed in this event at Kettering Park in Dayton that featured teams from Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky.
    The Wise Guys began tournament action with a match-up against Columbus Premier League rival Mojo/MJ Lowe. Goodfellows led 9-3 after two innings of play until a nine run third inning for Mojo/Lowe made it 12-9. From there the bats fell silent for the Wise Guys as they were humbly defeated 27-12. Eric Workman was the lone bright spot for Goodfellows Pub with three hits.
    Off to the loser's bracket went the Wise Guys where they quickly rebounded by downing Silvertown/Walkers of Indiana 21-10. Gary Martin and Doug Virden led the way with three hits. Cory Blevins drove in a team high eight runs thanks to a pair of homers. Eric Marshall also collected five RBI while Martin batted in four.
    The next game pitted Goodfellows Pub against Pepco of Cleveland and the Wise Guys easily dispatched them back to Cleveland with a 24-11 win. Jeremy Litteral paced Goodfellows Pub with four hits. Scott Carr, Doug Virden and Eric Workman followed that up with three hits each. Workman also knocked in five runs for the Wise Guys.
    Sunday afternoon found Goodfellows Pub with a showdown against Softball Times of Kentucky. The Wise Guys made quick work of Softball Times with a convincing 19-5 victory. Eric Marshall, Tito Workman and Cory Blevins each stroked three hits for Goodfellows Pub. Marshall also led the Wise Guys with four RBI while Workman and Blevins followed with three.
    The win over Softball Times set up a rematch with Mojo/MJ Lowe. Once again it appeared the Wise Guys were doomed after Mojo/MJ Lowe put up fifteen runs in the top of the second for a 15-1 score. However, Goodfellows Pub scratched and clawed their way back to within a single run that setup a bottom of the seventh thriller. Trailing 21-20, wiley veteran Doug Virden came off the bench as a pinch hitter and launched a fly ball deep down the right field line for a triple to lead things off. Cory Blevins followed with a single to score Virden and tie the game at 21-21. Leadoff hitter Scott Carr then stepped to the plate and blistered a double to the gap that scored Blevins and setoff a wild celebration for the Wise Guys in a hard fought and thrilling 22-21 triumph. Carr carried the big stick Goodfellows Pub with five hits. Eric Marshall and Blevins followed with four hits while Dana Waddell rounded out the hit parade with three hits. Blevins collected six RBI in the win Gary Martin followed with four.
    Down to the final four teams the Wise Guys next faced Players Warehouse of Kentucky. Riding the momentum from the win over Mojo/MJ Lowe the Wise Guys exploded for fifteen runs in the top of the first and cruised to a 25-9 win. Scott Carr led the charge with four hits followed by Eric Marshall, Dana Waddell, Jeremy Litteral and Eric Workman with three hits. Gary Martin and Workman each collected four RBI in the victory.
    Elk & Elk of Cleveland was the next opponent for Goodfellows Pub in the loser's bracket final. The Wise Guys trailed only 13-10 until a seven run fifth by Elk & Elk doomed Goodfellows Pub to a 20-10 defeat. Eric Workman smacked three hits in the setback.
    Top hitters for the Wise Guys were Doug Virden .846, Eric Workman .750, Scott Carr .740, Eric Marshall .739, Cory Blevins .700, Tito Workman .667 and Gary Martin .650

Doug Virden blasts a double versus EMR/Plant Detail.
COLUMBUS- You could call it A Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Top Hat/Goodfellows Pub struggled with inconsistent play over the weekend in the ASA C East Nationals scoring as many as twenty-nine runs to as little as four. Despite the difference in play, the Wise Guys avoided a repeat of last year's 0-2 finish in Virginia and managed to finish a respectable 13th place with a 3-2 record. Forty-eight teams from the eastern half of the United States traveled to Berliner Park in Columbus for a chance to play in the ASA National Championship in Oklahoma City next month.  
    Top Hat/Goodfellows Pub began tournament play Friday evening with a matchup versus National Gold/RAC of Rhode Island. The Wise Guys held a 5-1 lead after four innings of play and that's when the bottom fell out. National Gold/RAC erupted for ten in the fifth and thirteen more in the seventh to whip Top Hat/Goodfellows Pub 24-8. Eric Workman had three hits while Tito Workman cranked a pair of homers to go with five RBI in the loss.
    The Wise Guys returned to Berliner Park Saturday afternoon with a loser's bracket clash with EMR/Plant Detail of Cincinnati. Lethargic play continued as Top Hat/Goodfellows managed to squeak out an 8-5 victory. Doug Virden led the way with three hits. Jeremy Barker and Tito Workman each collected three RBI in the win.
    Moving on the Wise Guys faced Steve's Sports/Canman Carting of Connecticut. It was in this game that the bats finally came alive for Top Hat/Goodfellows Pub as they crushed Steve's Sports/Canman Carting 20-5. Scott Carr, Jeremy Barker and Eric Workman paced the Wise Guys with three hits each. Ian Craze, Barker and Workman drove in three runs in the victory.
    Top Hat/Goodfellows Pub next faced HH/A & J Construction of Indiana and continued their hot hitting ways. The Wise Guys rode the momentum of a thirteen run first inning to a 29-5 demolition of HH/A & J Construction. Ian Craze and Eric Workman led the charge with four hits each. Scott Carr, Jeremy Litteral, Mike O'Neil and Tito Workman followed with three hits each. E. Workman drove in a game high seven runs. Cory Moore contributed with six RBI while Jeremy Barker batted in four.
    Down to the sweet 16 Top Hat/Goodfellows Pub faced A Plus Appraisal of Cleveland in a Sunday morning contest. Unfortunately, the Wise Guys saved their worst for last by dropping an 18-4 decision to A Plus Appraisal. Top Hat/Goodfellows Pub batted a horrendous .304 in the defeat.
    Top Hat/Goodfellows Pub will conclude their 2009 season this weekend with a trip to Panama City, Florida to compete in the WSL C North American Championships. The tournament will be streamed live over the internet by Softball Kingdom.

Doug Virden and Mike O'Neil stroked three hits while Eric Workman drove in three runs in the setback.
    In the championship game both teams traded punches until the last inning. Clinging to a 21-19 lead, Top Hat/Goodfellows Pub used a seven run uprising in the top of the seventh and held off a late rally to outlast Fluff & Ed's Restaurant in a 28-24 slugfest to win the championship. Jeremy Litteral carried the hot stick for the Wise Guys with five hits followed by Doug Virden with four hits.

    In the loser's bracket the Wise Guys quickly squashed the Playmakers 12-0 via run rule. Ian Craze paced the winners with a single and grand slam homer to go with five RBI.
    Advancing on Top Hat/Goodfellows Pub faced Dina's in a rematch of the tournament opener and looked to gain a measure of revenge. Dina's jumped out to a 17-3 lead after three innings of play. On the verge of getting run ruled the Wise Guys erupted for seven run in the bottom of the fourth inning to get to within four at 18-14.
