Note: Games were not played in numbered order on the bracket.

The 52nd annual USSSA Major World Series began on Wednesday morning October 5th at 9 AM at the Space Coast Stadium in Viera, Florida as well as the Red Marucci field back in the baseball quad.  It was an 18 team double elimination tournament played over 4 days in perfect weather with no rain or lightning and a high of about 83 degrees through the week.  The most prestigious tournament in slow pitch softball used the Dudley Stadium ZN ball, the all turf field dimensions were 325-365-385-365-325, and there was no home run limit.  The wind for the most part blew out to the right field corner at about 7 mph.  The higher seeded team in each game was automatically made the Home team based on the seasons long Conference points standings.

Link to Condensed game

Classic Glass and Chick-fil-a in a 1st round battle between ‘AA’ teams from opposite coasts was a home run battle early on with Classic Glass getting an early 5-3 lead.  Then the Classic Glass defense with Josh Brown in the middle and Greg Downing in right field slowed the Chick-fil-a offense and Chick-fil-a’s left fielder Travis Fields returned the favor with a pair of nice plays.  Going into the 6th the two teams were tied at 16-16 and both put up a zero in that inning.  In the top of the 7th Classic Glass got a 2 run homer from Downing and Ben Falcone who pinch hit earlier hit his 2nd homer to go up 19-16.  In the bottom of the 7th Chick-fil-a got a 3rd home run from Zach Sanford to pull within a run but a double play ended the game with Classic Glass winning 19-18.  Both teams hit 7 home runs in the game.

Ben Falcone from Classic Glass was 2-2 with 2 HR off the bench!

Link to Condensed game (when available)

The #1 ‘A’ team Nitro Circus and Proton were locked in a defensive battle early on as great catches by Nitro outfielder Zach Smith and Proton outfielder Brock Frentzel slowed down the offenses.  In the top of the 4th Proton pitcher Jose Flores got a foulout and a strikeout looking to hold Nitro Circus scoreless.  In the bottom of the 5th Proton opened things up on a 3 run homer by Frentzel and in the top of the 6th Nitro Circus answered with 9 runs on 2 run doubles by Robbie Fow and Steven Hathaway.  In the 6th Proton only managed 1 run after having the bases loaded and Nitro Circus failed to add to their 14-11 lead in the top of the 7th when they grounded into a double play.  In the bottom of the 7th needing 3 to tie and 4 to win Proton got a 2 run double from Brian Dezern and Adam Ussery hit a walk off single to win it 15-14!

Link to Condensed game (when available)

Westpoint the top offensive ‘A’ team in the country gave 2022 USSSA ‘AA’ Champion Competitive Edge all they could handle as Travis Tucker, Canaan Baum, and Drew Smith all hit 3 run homer’s in the game.  But Competitive Edge 1st baseman Tyler Ervine who was named the Conference Offensive MVP went 5-5 and Mitchell Lendenski added 4 hits and Competitive Edge led 24-18 late in the game.  Westpoint sort of self destructed in their late comeback attempt with two base running errors and a double play.  Both teams scored in every inning and Comp Edge out homered West Point 7-5.

Rock Run celebrates an early lead!

vs

#4 Resmondo/Smash It/All American/Menosse (FL-Major)

Link to Condensed game

Rock Run who was 2-0 vs Resmondo during the regular season looked a little nervous early on against the defending world champions as they went down in order 1-2-3 in the top of the 1st inning.  But Rock Runs defense and pitching held Resmondo down in the early going and Rock Run managed early leads of 9-2 and 19-11 on a 3rd inning 3 run triple by Marcus Miller and a 2 run triple in the 4th by Jeremy Fry.  Resmondo answered in the bottom half of most innings with home runs by Bubba Mack, Bradley Jones, and Argen Dodds.  As the game wore on and the sun went down the ball started to fly and Rock Run hit 4 home runs.  But in the 5th inning Resmondo infielder Luis Reyna made a great play to stop a Rock Run rally, Patrick Ellwanger and BJ Fulk hit pinch hit home runs, and Tyler Marshburn in right field made an incredible running catch into the fence to stop Rock Run in the 6th.  In the bottom of the 6th Scott Hartling who was picked up in August for the injured Nick Santana hit a clutch 2 run homer to put Resmondo up and they held on to win without having to bat in the bottom of the 7th 23-21!  Survive and advance!

Resmondo’s BJ Fulk comes off the bench to hit a key pinch hit home run!
