    gervasutti.sebastian Led by the pitching of Sebastian Gervasutti (pictured above) and Gerald Muizelaar, the Kegel Black Knights of Fargo won the 2013 West St. Paul Men’s Fastpitch Tournament.

    WEST ST. PAUL, Minn. – With the NAFA World Series and ISC World Tournament two weeks away, this is the time for teams to start playing their best ball. The time to peak. And if their latest tournament is a forecast, then the Kegel Black Knights appear to be right on schedule.

    Sebastian Gervasutti threw a no-hitter with five strikeouts to pick up the game-shortened win for Kegel of Fargo, which is celebrating its 30th year in men’s fastpitch. The 28-year-old from Bilbao, Spain finished the tournament 2-0 with one hit allowed in 18 innings and 34 strikeouts.

    “He throws hard with the up and down and some change up,” said Kegel player / coach Kyle Koterba.
