BASA STAFF: You all played professional baseball for the Florida Marlins.
Wolf: I didn’t know that.
BASA STAFF: Folks are going to learn that BASA is the new Sports
Wolf: True, True.
BASA STAFF: How long have you been playing softball?
Wolf: I started about 10 years ago, but I have really played about 7
BASA STAFF: How did you get started?
Wolf: I was released from the Marlins in 95 and was just hanging
around one day with a lady friend at Forestwood park. I was telling
her what a "girly" sport it was as we watched some guys practicing.
One of the players said that I looked like I could play and became very
persistent that I come take some swings. So thanks to BASA Board
member Tim Shaw, ever since then it has been on.
BASA STAFF: What was your most memorable moment from 2005?
Wolf: My first BASA tournament in 2 1/2 years was this year in
Memphis and I was playing with Extreme. My first at bat I was nervous,
because I knew everyone one was watching. A pitch later a monster 3 HR
shot and everyone was screaming heeeeeee's back, that was a very good
BASA STAFF: What was your favorite tournament?
Wolf: Naptown, because I showed I could still play outfield and I
pitched my tail off all weekend. And it was Nelly's first major
tournament win. The whole weekend was cool.
were selling Me, Nelly and Murphy Lee's picture all weekend and I am
still looking for my cut. I know those guys might not need it, but I
could use it.(Laughing)
BASA STAFF: What teams have you played with?
Wolf: Too many to name.
BASA STAFF: Who's your favorite player outside of teammates on
the BASA Circuit?
Wolf: Troy Summerfield, who taught me how to pitch and perfect
the 5 man. He is the best pitcher in the Lou and I would actually pay
to see him play. And the late great Dirk "The Blaster" Androff who
taught me how to hit. I once made a video on hitting with him. May he rest in peace. A lot of veteran ball players know who he is.
BASA STAFF: Tito/Church is there or has there been a rivalry
between you two.
(Laughing) Tito and I have always been competitive towards each other,
even when playing playstation, because we both hate to lose. It's like the Game and Tupac with one
mic on the stage.
BASA STAFF: Speaking of Tito, the two of you have entertained
many with the Matrix, but a whole lot of BASA has not seen the two of
you on the mound at the same time. What exactly takes place when you
two pull this one off.
Wolf: You have to really see it to believe it, but when Tito is
pitching and we have 2 strikes on the batter, I will come to the mound
with him. Then just imagine two people doing Globetrotter like stuff
and straight clowning. What you see is two different versions of the
Matrix, though he calls mine the Bionic Man (Laughing) and the batter
usually strikes out or pops up.
Who is The Game and who is
Wolf: I'll let Tito answer on Church on Tuesday.
STAFF: Approximately how many BASA tournaments do you play in a year?
Wolf: About 12
BASA STAFF: What do you like most about playing on the BASA
Competition is off the chain. And BASA is the #### compared to the
other circuits. It's fairground every weekend for those of you who
know about the fairground.
BASA STAFF: What improvements would you like to see made within
Wolf: I played Competitive and Rec when there were only 2 divisions. And then Super Rec was made to help out the lower level Rec
teams. I think something should be done to help the Competitive teams
build up there program. If they lower the competitive to 8HR's then I
think some of the Super Rec Teams might move up.
STAFF: What are your goals for the 2006 season?
Wolf: Staying healthy and repping hard for the STL. And to return
Class Act to Elite status.
STAFF: So what tournaments can one catch Class Act in action
during the 2006 season?
Wolf: Well you guys have not released the schedule for 2006, but some
BASA tournaments you will definitely see Class Act are in
Indianapolis, Memphis, Atlanta, Tallahassee, and of course the Lou.
BASA STAFF: Tell us something about you that most people do not
Wolf: That I am a gang and drug counselor, fitness trainer and I like
to watch the History Channel.
BASA STAFF: That is about it. We thank you for your time,
any shout outs!
Wolf: To God first and foremost. Luke 18:27 I believe in him
wholeheartedly. To my Class Act and Derrty Squad families. Big shouts
to my lil brother Essay, my teammates Omar and Terrell. You 3 keep
your head up and to all of my haters, thanks for keeping my name in
your head, and in your mouth. All the positive people, thanks for
staying in my corner.
Next week, Big Swole!
