Resmondo-Specialty Tank / Worth, the #1 ranked men’s slow-pitch team in the nation came out of the loser’s bracket and “double dipped” Team Combat/Laser Vision/D2E/Supreme, the #4 ranked team in the country for the Conference Championship title.

Then they beat Combat/Laser Vision 22-7 and finally 23-22 on a walk off bases loaded single by Jeremy Isenhower to take the title. All of the games in the Major portion of the Championships were played on baseball fields with 330-390-410-390-330 dimensions. The largest fields used in softball today.
