 USA VS Maryland All-Stars
 
 
 
The USA National Women's Team VS The Maryland All-Stars event at Regency Furniture (Blue Crabs) Stadium on Tuesday, July 29th was a huge success nearly filling the 4400 seat stadium.  The Hall of Fame Commission helped to sponsor the event and many Hall of Famers were present.  Four Hall of Famers participated in the games,  Pitcher Megan Elliott (HoF 2013), Coach Terry Burdette (HoF 2013), Umpire Philip "Reece" Morgan (HoF 2011), and Coach Tommy Orndorff (HoF 2009), who threw out the first ball.  The USA fielded a strong team and won both ends of the doubleheader allowing only one hit and one walk in the second game after firing a no-hitter at the All-Stars in the opener. 
 
DCASA Commissioner Jack Mowatt showcased the best softball players in the USA and Maryland for area fans, by sponsoring this big time softball event.
 
The USA and All-Star players, were very accommodating and stayed past midnight signing autographs for excited and adoring fans.
 
The Maryland games were the last stop for the USA before departing to Italy to play in the Italian Softball Championships. 
 
Plans are already being made to host the event next year and an even bigger turn out is expected.

2013 HALL OF FAME BANQUET

  “Welcome Aboard New Hall of Famers”


 


The Greater Washington Fastpitch Softball Hall of Fame held its 50th Annual Hall of Fame Awards Banquet on Saturday, November 2, 2013.  The banquet was held for the seventh consecutive year at the Holiday Inn College Park.


 


More than one hundred thirty supporters of fast pitch softball, including twenty-six previously inducted members of the Hall of Fame, and family and friends of the 2013 inductees attended to honor and celebrate the induction of seven new members.   The inductees were:


 


  • Albert Behrendt

  • Charlie Brotman

  • Terry Burdette

  • Burnett “Plook’ Childs

  • Megan Elliott

  • Jack Hutcherson

  • Chris ‘Taco’ Willians

     

    The 2013 inductees raised to three hundred fifteen (315) the number of players, managers, umpires and sponsors of fast pitch softball who have been honored by induction into the Greater Washington Fastpitch Softball Hall of Fame.

     

    The Hall of Fame Commission thanks all that attended and who helped make the 50th annual banquet a success.  Their presence was important to each inductee and their support is crucial to the work of the Hall of Fame Commission. 

     

    Plans are already underway to for the 51st annual banquet.  Look for information on our web site.
