2021 Nationwide Conference USSSA
Softball City Major by Smash It Sports
Classic Glass hits against MAJ in the championship game
MAJ/Knell/Dirty Sports/DTS/DOMN8 a Conference 'A' team based out of Washington won the 21 team "Softball City" Major in Salem, Oregon this past Friday/Saturday. The tournament was played in sweltering heat and humidity with temperatures reaching 110 degrees. MAJ knocked off the favorite and #1 seeded Classic Glass/Easton 19-8 in the winner's bracket finals and then late Saturday night Classic Glass forced the "if" game of the double elimination tournament with a 38-13 victory. In the "if" game which ended at 3 AM in the morning MAJ beat Classic Glass 19-17. The tournament got behind when Bay Area Legends beat Lazer Sports 22-17 in a losers bracket game that went 13 innings! Bay Area Legends (CA-A) won a number of over time and one run games to finish 3rd and Lazer Sports (UT-B) made a deep run in the loser's bracket to finish 4th. It was brought to my attention that this tournament was a "Special Points" event which would mean 180 + (8 x 4) = 212 points to the winner if that is true. Which would put MAJ in the driver's seat to be one of the 'A' teams that make the USSSA Major World Series.
1st Place – MAJ/Knell/Dirty Sports/DTS/DOMN8 (WA-A)
4th Place – Lazer Sports (UT-B)

2021 Juno Athletics New Jersey Major
1st Place Women's Major – Lady SNI/LazyLlama/DeMarini/LS (FL-M)
Over on the east coast Lady SNI/LazyLlama/DeMarini/LS (FL-M) won the Juno Athletics New Jersey Women's Major which was played in its entirety on Saturday June 26th with 8 teams. Lady SNI beat La Famiglia/Easton/Riot (PA-A) in the winner's final 14-4 and again in the championship game 4-3. I apologize on behalf of USSSA for the fact there was no live stream on USSSALive.com for this tournament. The tournament was not on any of the public schedules so the people in charge of sending the cameras (including myself) had no idea there was a tournament.
2nd Place – La Familgia Ladies/Easton/Riot (PA-A)
3rd Place – MPT Rentals/AOB/Juno Athletics (NJ-M)
4th Place – KTL/Family First Funding (NJ-B)
