Tim Pemberton

ASA Playing History

USSSA Playing History

Why do you like the game of softball?
It is a healthy outlet for the competitor in me. I love playing against the best in the game.

Who is the best softball player you have ever seen play?
When I got my start with Axis, a "B" team in 2000 from Washington, no one hit it further and harder than Barry Mac.   I had no idea that someone could hit a softball like that.   He would do anything to win.   I learned a lot that first season about upper ball.   I knew that this was the game for me.

What position do you play?
Utility.   It happens every year.

Where do you call home?
Meridian, Idaho

What do you do for a living?
Ramp Agent, Southwest Airlines

Did you play sports in High School / College / Pro?
High School baseball and basketball

How did you get your start in softball and how did you get to the upper level?
I was playing in a SWA tourney in 2000 and was noticed by a teammate from Seattle and was asked to play with Axis.

What batting grip do you use?
One finger off

What is your favorite sports team?

What is your favorite sport other than softball?

Do you have any superstitions and if so, what are they?
I don't think so…

What is your most memorable softball moment?
Not your typical answer here:  Finishing runner- up in consecutive years at USSSA Worlds in 2006 and 2007.   Second place sucks.

What is the best improvement upper level softball could make?
This game is always changing.   Leave it as is.

What is your favorite non-World tournament?
The Connor Landa/Daniel Miller Memorial tourney in Homedale, ID

What is the funniest thing you have ever seen on a softball field?
Anaconda, MT. Home run derby.   5000+ fans.   A male streaker runs out on the field and slides head first into second base (the crowd gasps).   When the cops started to chase him, he makes a break for the center field fence.   Half way to the fence, he blows his hammy.   Real funny.

Who are you playing with in 2011?
