2018 Nationwide Conference USSSA
32nd Annual Rocky Mountain Shootout
The Rocky Mountain Shootout was a Nationwide Conference USSSA event that started out with 25 teams. The fences in the high altitude were 320 feet. In the second round a Kansas 'B' team Starkey beat California Conference 'B' team L&S Glass, and Tunie Sports an Arizone 'B' team beat California Conference 'B' team Cheap Suits, while the other 5 Conference teams ( Stars, Classic Glass, Newbreed, and Nally's) advanced. In the semifinal games Newbreed (WA-AA) knocked off Nally's (MO-A) 39-33 and Classic Glass (CA-A) beat Stars (CO-A) 33-31 to advance. In the winner's bracket finals early Saturday night Classic beat Newbreed 29-28. In the loser's bracket Nally's got on a roll and beat Infamous 35-33, Stars 46-20, and then on Sunday morning beat Newbreed before losing to Classic Glass in the championship. Classic Glass earned 186 points but that was not enough to get them into the top 16 to qualify for the Major World Series.
I would like to thank Doc and Jay Snodgrass for putting up the livestream camera.
