LAPD Blue Defends the Heavyweight Belt
“Don’t call it a comeback. We’ve been here for years.” After losing the 2020 season due to COVID, things felt normal again in Las Vegas for Police Softball World Series XVI. The event sold out with 32 teams competing in Uppers (Majors & Mids) and 38 teams in Lowers (Gold). We scheduled for a 40 team Gold division but we had 2 late drops. In total we had a total of 70 teams from over 30 states competing over the four-days.

The Connection is at it again, this time WCC
Yet another championship for The Connection
It had been 2 long years since the last Police Softball West Conference Championships were held. A lot has changed since that time, including the venue. West Covina Big League Dreams was no longer an option and Cathedral City in late June generally produces intolerable playing conditions (average daily high temperature 108 degrees). Fortunately, the softball gods must like the PS circuit because the opportunity arose to play in coastal San Diego County at the SportsPlex USA.

This was a special year for Kyle Scollo. It was his first year to be able to play the full tournament on a team and enjoy the sport, just as his dad had. Kyle is graduating from high school in a month, and the commitment many of us made when John passed, was to run this tournament until he graduated. He now wants to come back and help run it, so we will keep it going.

Connection & Enforcers KICK OFF Season with Championships
El Presidente Model Onyx bats by Elite
It’s that time of year, when everyone is excited to see who is playing with who and showing off the new uniforms. However; the past year has been a year like no other. This was the first Police Softball Tournament, on the West Coast, since the 2020 DEA Kickoff. Usually the tourney is held in Palm Springs, but due to COVID restrictions, Socal is still on lockdown. So the venue had to be change to Fresno CA. Instead of 5 fields, there was only 3. There was also time constraints due to the facility wanting league night and Saturday Civi ball. That meant long breaks in between games, and shorter length games. The 15 West Coast teams that showed up, didn’t care about any of that. They were just excited to be playing Police Softball, on the West Coast, once again.

The 15th Annual Police Softball World Series was completely sold out over two months in advance. This year marked the 10-year anniversary at the Big League Dreams venue in Las Vegas. The park itself is only 10 years old, so Police Softball has been there since its inaugural year. The first 5 years saw the Cathedral City (Palm Springs, Ca.) as the host venue. The event itself has undergone very few changes over the past few years, so there is nothing new to report in regards to the format.

LAPD Blues - Winners of the St. Louis Show Me Classic
The big fields at BMAC, along with the wind and the high humidity made for some low scoring, but very competitive games. The humidity mushed up the balls and there were many players that did not hit a home run, with only the “real” home run hitters hitting them, which made for interesting games and adjustments. I have to mention how absolutely awesome it was to see Trini and Camper battling with their teams, out on the fields in St. Louis, after all they have been through.

World Series XIII Ranks as one of the best ever!
Mid-Atlantic Lawmen Celebrate As Only World Series Champions Can
On the night of October 1, 2017, a cowardly gunman opened fire on a crowd of concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest music festival on the Las Vegas Strip, leaving 58 people dead and 546 injured. My wife and daughter were in that crowd and escaped physically unharmed. My daughter had to step over wounded concert goers to escape and there were moments of terror as my wife and daughter were separated for over 10 minutes while the shots rang out. Unable to contact each other, they had no idea if the other had escaped. Fortunately, they both did.One week later my wife and I returned to Las Vegas, feeling blessed and also looking forward to spending the week with brother law enforcement officers from all over the United States and Canada. The event we were celebrating was our 13th annual Police Softball World Series at the pristine Big League Dreams complex.

20 FOR 20 - Meet Corey Rogerson of Mid-Atlantic
We at PS wanted to take a cue from ESPN. No, we are not going to hammer politically slanted agendas into your living room while you are sitting on the couch eating your Wheaties, but we are going to put the spotlight on players and incidents from our past and humanize the people in our game. Every player on the field, whether we love them or have a little bit of competitive disdain for them, will risk their life for you, and that is something special that very few sports can say. We thought starting off this series with 2017 East Conference Player of the Year Corey Rogerson would be a great way to kick this off. Corey comes into the World Series on the #1 ranked team in the East Conference and we cannot wait to see what they can do with the microscope on them. So here is 20 questions from one of our fav players to watch. We hope this gives you some insight into one of the best players in our game. (Our comments are in parenthesis at the end of each answer)

The field of teams this year was very competitive, with seven of them being Police Softball Majors teams. We had to change the schedule a little and play as many games as possible Saturday, to miss the thunderstorms on Sunday. All teams were down for the marathon on Saturday and we ended up getting all games played before any storms came.

Mid-Atlantic Kicks of Season with an Orlando Championship
Mid-Atlantic Lawmen UNDEFEATED
Once again we kicked off 2017 on the East Coast with the Brian Aselton Memorial Tournament in Kissimmee Florida. I have to start by saying, many teams came up to me over the weekend thanking me for having this tournament but in all reality , I cant express how fortunate I feel to be able to host this long running event. That cold wet Saturday evening shift back in 01/23/99 when Brian's life was so tragically taken from us 18 years ago, still seems like yesterday. So I am the one that needs to be thanking each and every one of you who participated, and in turn helps me to be able to keep Brian's name alive.

World Series XII is the Biggest World Series Ever
Team Texas Pops the Corks!
The 12th Annual Police Softball World Series was held at the Big League Dreams facility in Las Vegas, Nevada on the 2nd weekend of October, 2016. The theme of the event was the “changing of the guard” as several established teams were feeling the heat of the young guns breathing down their necks all season. The youth movement was far more prevalent this year than in the past so of course, decided to market that angle. It was no longer about East vs. West, as the cyber-friendships created by social media killed that rivalry. What it didn’t kill was the inevitable changing of the guard. Older, established teams were classified as being Legends of the Old Guard, while the newer teams were simply referred to as the New World Order.

SoCal Alliance and SoCal Riot Reign as Champions West Conference Championship Recap
Alliance player Danny Wells is safe at home against the NY Hounds.
The West Conference Championship theme was “Back to the Future” as the tournament was held at the Big League Dreams facility in Cathedral City (Palm Springs), Ca. The venue was the site of the first 5 Police Softball World Series tournaments before that event moved to its current location in Las Vegas. This facility is the flagship Big League Dreams park and used to host some of California’s largest police softball tournaments. It has been 7 years since a major police tournament was held here, so decided to visit our roots and take a walk back through time.

In November 2014, Officer David Levy of the Chicago Metro team responded to an accident with injuries call in the Chicago suburb and found 22 year-old Terrell White lying in the street, barely breathing after being struck by a vehicle. White spent several months in the hospital recovering. He endured three weeks in a coma and five surgeries and in May of 2015, he showed up at the Flossmoor Police Department looking to retrieve his bike after walking several miles from neighboring Country Club Hills.

This is Joe's first Walt Conry Mgr. of the Year Plaque
Joe Monahan Named East Conference Mgr. of the Year!
Joe Monahan #24
For several years the only team that represented the state of Missouri at the World Series was the St. Louis Top Guns. The Top Guns folded and for many years Missouri had no representative on a national level. In 2012, Joe Monahan introduced a “new” team, the Missouri Lawmen to the national stage. Through his leadership he quickly established the Missouri Lawmen as a Majors Division powerhouse and they have steadily climbed the ladder going from a ranking of 15th in 2012, to 9th in 2013, to 4th in 2014 and they currently sit at 6th going into the World Series this year.

Ralph earns his First Walt Conry Manager of the Year Plaque
Ralph Contreras Named West Conference Manager of the Year
Ralph is a diehard softball player, but even more so a diehard supporter of the police softball circuit. Ralph took over a floundering and eventual defunct Alameda’s Most Wanted team and reinvented them simply as Most Wanted. The NorCal based team is one, if not the, most active team in that region. Although the Major Division teams typically get most of the accolades, Ralph’s contributions to the Gold Division have not gone unnoticed.
Sep 01, 2015 and Galls Named Sponsors of the Year
Sponsors are the life blood of any team. If you look at many of the successful teams in the history of police softball, there is a good chance the team had one, if not multiple, sponsors. This year we received several nominations for this award and after reviewing the nominations, our award goes to (OH50) for the East Conference Sponsor of the Year and to Galls (Sin City Aces) for the West Conference Sponsor of the Year.
