The Seattle Dual Major was a grueling 4 days of softball but helped by the weather which was cool, dry, and had low humidity. Laservision/H Auto/Easton the #1 team in the nation ran their win streak to 33 games and 6 Nationwide Conference USSSA tournament wins in a row by going 10-0 and winning both events. In both tournaments Laservision knocked off Team Combat/Softball.com in both the winner’s finals and the finals by a combined four game score of 153-64. Laservision was only challenged once late in a game and that was a threat from 4 The Fallen/Miken/Evo9X who was beating them by 2 going into the top of the 7th in the second tournament. Laservision promptly scored 10 runs and held on to win 28-24.
Sonny’s from Wyoming was the highest non-conference team as they placed 3rd in both tournaments with an impressive 11-4 record, losing only to the Major teams. OC Swats out of California was 4th in the first tournament, and 4 The Fallen/Miken scored their first top 4 of the season in the second event.
There weren’t many upsets in either tournament. In tournament #1 J&I/Elite beat OC Swats 21-20 for the only notable upset. In the second tournament Headcase beat Combat/Blockers 24-8 for the only real upset and Headcase is a very good ‘B’ team. There were a lot of pulled muscles and fatigue but the players for the most part were still giving it all after as many as 15 games!
Notes from around the Conference:
– Broughton added pitcher Kevin Johnson, outfielder Matt Tindell, and slugger Sterling Parker.
– Chicago will be seeded off of each teams top 4 points tournaments. Best 6 tourny points seeding starts at the Dudley I believe.
– I never did see Combatants play in Seattle. Sorry about that.
