NEW ZEALAND – It’s the off season for North American fastpitch and for most players, they’ve switched uniforms for a winter sport like basketball or hockey. Or they’re pumping iron at a fitness center muscling-up for the coming season.

Hitting, pitching, fielding? Not for a few months yet.

But not so for Yusef Davis and Tyler Bouley. These two young and budding stars – Davis, 22, and Bouley, 21 – shunned taking the winter off and instead boarded a plane for New Zealand.

All with the purpose of improving and pushing themselves to reach new heights in the sport they profess to love. As the saying goes, “to be the best you can be.”

Fastpitch is a pitcher’s game. Talented ones typically dominate hitters. So where better to improve one’s hitting than in pitching-rich New Zealand.

    TOUCH CHUCKERS

Bouley got a good feel for just how good these Kiwi hurlers are almost as soon as he landed.

“It has really helped my game because you don’t have to travel to (face) a quality pitcher,” said Bouley, who plays for Northcote Softball Club. “Every premiere team has a pitcher that either has competed at the (International Softball Congress World Tournament) or is capable of competing at the ISC. Two of the best I’ve faced so far are Bailey Hoani and Josh Pettett.”

MOLINE, IL – Tyler Bouley and Dave Marchio provided the power and Joel Cooley pitched masterfully in leading Tin Cup of St. Paul to a 7-0 victory over Chettys Pretty Boys, Sunday night, at Green Valley Sports Complex.

Bouley (1-for-3) slugged a two-run home run in the first, and Marchio (2-for-3) put the game out of reach with a three-run blast in the fourth to seal the win and even Tin Cup’s record at 1-1.

Handed the generous run support, the veteran right-handed Cooley didn’t squander it. He was at the top of his game, firing a perfect game through four innings. His only stumble came in the fifth when Ryan Baptiste singled to open the inning. But Cooley’s rise ball coaxed a fly ball and he struck out the final two batters to end the game in five innings under the run-rule.

  • Now Tin Cup advances into Tuesday when they will meet the loser between the Elmira Expos and New York Gremlins at 10 a.m.
  • Tin Cup collected six hits with Sam Nieman, Pita Rona and Luke Wilhelmy getting one hit a piece, along with Bouley and Marchio’s game-winning contributions.
