Foresters Shut Out Studs to Win World Series Championship

It's the second title in three years for Santa Barbara. Kevin Keyes is named tournament MVP.

The Santa Barbara Foresters are world champions.

The Foresters defeated the Seattle Studs 2-0 behind a Mike Ford shutout and a 2-3 day by Andre Miller on Friday to win the 74th NBC World Series in Wichita, Kan.

The Foresters (7-0) won their second title in the past three years; like in 2006, Santa Barbara went undefeated in winning the title.

Miller had a home run and an RBI triple, while Ford pitched nine innings, gave up five hits, zero runs, struck out nine and walked one.

Kevin Keyes was named tournament MVP, and best hitter of the tournament, while Keyes and Miller earned spots on the all-tournament team.

Foresters manager Bill Pintard was named manager of the tournament.

Eddie Siegel is sports information director for the Santa Barbara Foresters.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
