KIMBERLY, Wisc
. – In an era of domination by foreign softball pitchers, American-born Jimmy Moore is proving a notable exception.

The blond, 30-year-old right-hander, whose remarkable pitching recently enabled the California Kings to win the gold medal in the National Sports Festival, guided Pay ‘n Pak of Seattle to the International Softball Congress World Tournament championship Sunday.

Moore defeated defending champion Decatur ADM’s Brent Stevenson 1-0 in a blockbuster climax to the 10-day, 87-game event at Sunset Point Park.

BEARD’S BLAST

One pitch was the difference between Moore, who finished the tourney with a 6-0 record, and Stevenson (6-1). It was a 3-2 pitch of Stevenson’s that first baseman Bruce Beard whacked over the center-field fence in the bottom of the fifth inning.

“It was a drop ball,” said the right-handed-hitting Beard. “It’s been his (Stevenson’s) best pitch. He just got it up a little.”

KIMBERLY, Wisc. – Michael White of All-Car of Green Bay crumbled to the ground after pitching to Jason Hanson.

White groaned and grabbed his left leg while his teammates rushed to his side.

The crowd of about 5,000 became silent at Sunset Park.

It was the bottom of the seventh inning Sunday afternoon in the championship of the International Softball Congress World Tournament. All-Car and the Tampa Bay Smokers were tied 2-2

After a couple of minutes, White was helped to his feet. He desperately wanted to continue. He tested his injured leg.

“I just couldn’t,” White said. “There was pain shooting up my leg. I couldn’t put any weight on it at all. There was no way I could push it.”
