DES MOINES – Dan Wall found himself not throwing at his usual pace and out of sync. So he turned his trust over to his teammates and as a result Wall and Wilber Lime of Galesville, Wisconsin are NAFA World Series champions.

Down 3-0 in the first inning, Wilber Lime rallied for a 5-4 victory over a tough Palazzo’s Java House of Des Moines to claim the NAFA AA World Series championship late Saturday night.

Wall and his teammates found themselves on the short end in the top of the first after Palazzo’s took advantage of three walks, a hit batter and two hits off Wall too take the early lead.

But Wall had a little talk with himself and settled down the rest of the way.

“Tonight I was too excited and the adrenaline had kicked in, and I was working too fast,” Wall said. “I had to slow myself down. I have good teammates, so I had to trust in their ability to get outs and they did.”

DES MOINES – Dan Wall of Wilber Lime out-dueled Todd Lubkeman of Willkomm Mobil for a 1-0 victory in the NAFA AA World Series winners bracket final.

Wall helped himself with a single in the fifth inning and later scored on Marty Becker’s run-scoring fly ball deep enough to right field.

Wall allowed but one hit – to Scott Beal – while striking out seven and walking none. Lubkeman was nearly as good. Through six innings he fired a three-hitter, gave up the one run, walked two and struck out four.

Wilber moves into the championship game Saturday night and will meet the winner of the losers bracket matchup between Willkomm, Palazzo’s and Napanee, who are left in the losers bracket.
