Resmondo taking on Swing Kings Friday night at Texas Star Park!
The annual Texas Legends Major played out this past weekend April 30th through May 1st at the Texas Star Park in Euless, Texas outside of the Dallas-Fort Worth area with 32 teams in double elimination format. A Texas Legends record 25 teams were from the Conference USSSA. Smash It Sports knocked off Monsta impressively in the winner’s bracket finals Saturday night 27-4. On Sunday morning Monsta run ruled Competitive Edge 36-17 after Competitive Edge had gotten off the field in the wee hours of the morning after defeating MPT Rentals 52-33 and Competitive Edge was the highest finishing AA team at 3rd place. In the 1st game of the championship Smash It who was leading most of the game could not put away Monsta and when Smash It put up a zero in the top of the 7th Monsta walked them down on homers by Austyn Dawe, Josh Fyffe, and a game winning homer by Jason Magnum to force the “if” game. In the final game it was Monsta who led late, failed to score in the top of the 7th with a home run left, and Smash It walked them down with a single from MVP Ryan Mcclanahan, a double from lead off hitter Josh Riley, a majestic home run by Everett Williams, and with two outs and Smash It down one newly acquired Kyle Pearson just did get a solo homer out of the reach of Monsta left fielder Jason Matusik, and Buddy Wolf hit a walk off homer to win the game and the tournament 30-29.
