Tito Workman's Softball History
Shelby, Ohio


Last Significant Update- 07-1-14

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.

MANSFIELD- Goodfellows Pizzeria & Pub remain unbeaten in the Mansfield Premier League thanks to sweeping a doubleheader versus Marion Moose last night at Cyclops Circle. The two victories improve their league mark to 10-0 and 36-9-1 overall.
    In the first game Marion Moose struck first with three runs in the top of the opening stanza. The Wise Guys followed that up plating four runs in the bottom half of the first.

The Wise Guys pushed three more runs across the plate in the top of the sixth but Marion Moose rallied for five runs in the bottom half to knot things up at eleven. In the seventh Goodfellows used some clutch hitting with two out to plate three insurance runs. However, the game didn't end without some drama. Marion Moose quickly scored two runs without making an out to make things interesting. With the tying run on first Doug Virden was able to get the next batter to hit into a fielders choice and then retired the next two batters to preserve the win. Scott Carr sparked the Wise Guys with four safeties. Matt Albert and Eric Workman followed with three hits. Albert smashed a pair of homers and knocked in five runs.

Goodfellows Pizzeria & Pub finish fourth in Bud Bash XVII (July 18, 2007)

Doug Virden eyes contact versus Columbus Pipe.
MANSFIELD- Goodfellows Pizzeria and Pub Softball compiled a 3-2 record enroute to a fourth place finish in Bud Bash XVII tournament action this past weekend. Ten teams competed in this event that was held at Cyclops Circle.
    The tourney opener pitted the Wise Guys against Meager Masonry of Cleveland. Goodfellows appeared to be in control of the game as they held a 13-8 lead after four complete innings of play. However, in the top of the sixth inning Meager Masonry capitalized on several defensive miscues committed by the Wise Guys and plated six runs to take a one run lead 14-13. Meager added an insurance run in the top of the seventh but it wasn't needed as the Goodfellows bats went silent going scoreless the remainder of the game in a frustrating 15-13 defeat. It left the Wise Guys with a feeling that they let one get away. Jeremy Litteral and Eric Workman each had three hits in the losing effort. Scott Tollison knocked in five runs while Tito Workman collected four RBI.
    Off to the loser's bracket Goodfellows went on to take on Shelly Materials of Zanesville. Again, the Wise Guys took an early commanding lead and got complacent. With Goodfellows leading 11-1 after two innings Shelly Materials plated seven runs in the top of the third to get to within three at 11-8. After the Wise Guys went down in order in the bottom half of the third inning Shelly Materials erupted for ten runs to take the lead in the top of the fourth. Goodfellows answered with three to make the score 18-14 after four complete innings. After holding Shelly Materials scoreless in the top of the fifth the Wise Guys could only answer with a single run for an 18-15 score after five innings of play. Shelly Materials then rallied for five runs in the top of the sixth that for a moment seemed to put Goodfellows away. With two outs and on the brink of elimination the Wise Guys rallied for eight runs to tie the game at 23-23. Goodfellows held Shelly Materials scoreless in the top of the seventh and plated a single run in the bottom of the seventh to escape early elimination with a 24-23 victory. Eric Workman and Scott Tollison led the victors with five hits. Matt Albert followed with four hits while Buck Workman, Scott Carr, Jeff Brooks and Andy Steck each had three hits. E. Workman clubbed a pair dingers to go with four RBI. Tollison also knocked in four runs.
    Advancing on the Wise Guys faced T&T Mortgage of Medina. Just like the first two games Goodfellows raced out to a 10-0 lead heading into the bottom of the second inning where T&T Mortgage exploded for ten runs to tie the game. The Wise guys followed that up with seven runs in the top of the third and were never challenged the rest of the way enroute to a 24-18 win. Eric Workman continued to swing a hot bat leading the winners with five hits. Scott Carr followed with four hits while Matt Albert, Andy Steck, Doug Virden and Scott Tollison each had three hits. Eric Workman cranked a pair of homers to with six RBI. Albert and Tollison each crushed homers and knocked in four runs.
    Next up for Goodfellows was American Metal Recycling/Just Friends from Cleveland. The Wise Guys made quick work of American Metal Recycling/Just Friends in a 22-2 demolition in four innings. Scott Carr led the winners with four hits. Jeff Brooks, Tito Workman and Eric Workman each had three hits. Jeremy Litteral and E. Workman both knocked in five runs.
    Down the final four teams Goodfellows met up Columbus Pipe/BW3/Easton. Columbus Pipe struck early and often taking a 16-0 before the Wise Guys dented the scoreboard with six runs in the bottom of the third. Unfortunately, it was a deficit Goodfellows couldn't overcome and Columbus Pipe went on to down the Wise Guys 22-13. Buck Workman, Scott Carr, Tito Workman and Eric Workman led Goodfellows with three hits in the losing cause. Carr collected three RBI.
