Not many team or individual accomplishments escaped slugger Joe Penwell’s reach during his 30-year career competing with legendary teams like Backstop/Easton, Watanabe/TPS, and EMR/Meiner’s/Worth.  By the numbers, Joe’s teams amassed ninety tournament championships, including six Major Metro titles and thirteen Metro crowns overall, four State titles, and two National and two World championships.  They also recorded a runner-up finish in the NSA A World, and a 4th and a 7th place finish in the ASA A Nationals, and a 5th place finish in the USSSA A World.  Joe was selected to six B All-City teams and eleven Major All-City teams, was a two-time class B “Player of the Year” and Major Metro Most Valuable Player, and a two-time Major “Player of the Year” runner-up.  He was selected to fifteen All-Metro teams, was named to an NSA All-World 1st team, and in 2000 was selected to the Greater Cincinnati All-Decade 1st team and to the All-Century team.  Primarily an outfielder, 1st baseman and catcher during his career, Joe was a lifetime .650 hitter who belted over 2,000 home runs.
