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

THANK YOU!

Last Significant Update- October 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.

COLUMBUS- It was a bittersweet night for the Wise Guys in the Columbus Premier League at Berliner Park. They won the regular season championship by defeating Mojo/MJ Lowe in the first game of a doubleheader 12-3. However, things got downright ugly in the nightcap as Goodfellows Pub batted a sorry .310 for the game and managed to score only a single run in an embarrassing 4-1 setback to Mojo/MJ Lowe. It was by far their worst offensive showing of the season. The loss also snapped a twelve game winning streak in the Columbus Premier League. The Wise Guys close out the Columbus Premier League regular season with a pair of games against Bearz Boys next Tuesday. Currently their record stands at 12-2 in the Columbus Premier League and 45-7 overall.
