2018 Nationwide Conference USSSA
40th Annual "Cajun Classic"
1st Place – Baugh Ford/Pure Sports/Kincaid (AL-A)
The 40th Annual Cajun Classic began on Friday at Pelican Park in Carencro, Louisiana with 24 teams on their 300 foot fields with artificial turf infields and the Conference Dudley Classic M ball, and finished up late Saturday night. Weiler Pipe upset Vivid in the 2nd round and Insidious knocked off Team Fan Apparel for the only early upsets. In the round of 8 a non-Conference 'A' team OI Livingston from Georgia started their bid to win the tournament by beating Weiler Pipe 20-11, Baugh Ford, whom many of the OI players played for in the past, 23-19, and All Out 35-30 to win the winner's bracket.
In the loser's bracket Baugh Ford made one of the more impressive loser bracket runs in Conference history as they knocked off Olmito Heat 14-11 and then Empire 38-37 on a walk off homer just like they did to Empire in the winner's bracket. Then they run ruled All Out 30-10, and double dipped OI Livingston 41-36 and 32-29 to win the tournament. They came from a 22-10 deficit to win the "if" game. Baugh Ford used infielder Ian Sidebottom and Adam Suhowolak at pitcher for their missing sponsor/pitcher Tommie Baugh who couldn't make the trip. Baugh Ford solidified their spot in the USSSA Major World Series with their impressive run.
