ASHLAND, OH – The field for the fourth and final day of the 2012 ASA Men’s Major Fast-Pitch National Tournament ASA Website is set after a Saturday full of action at Ashland’s Brookside Main and Brookside West parks.

In Saturday’s final game, the Hill United Chiefs of New York handed the Minnesota Angels their first loss of the tournament in the winner’s bracket final, 6-1. The game wrapped up a little before 11 p.m. and improved Hill United to 4-0 in the event.

On Sunday, all of the tournament’s games will be played at Brookside Main. The Kegal Black Knights of North Dakota will open action with a 9 a.m. game against the New York Gremlins. The winner of that contest is slated to take on Minnesota at 11 a.m.

From there, Hill United will play the winner, with a first pitch scheduled for 1 p.m. If Hill United is defeated in that game, a 3 p.m. game will be played.

As was reported earlier this week in the Times-Gazette, the championship game(s) will be broadcast on tape-delay on SportsTime Ohio, with the first airing set for noon Monday. Bruce Drennan, a longtime Cleveland broadcaster and the host of STO’s “All Bets Are Off,” will be on the call for those games, with color commentary coming from Ashland’s Mike Van Dine.
