MPT Rentals rolled through the 23rd Annual Cincy Major
MPT Rentals/Juno Athletics (NJ-Major) went undefeated to win their 1st tournament of the season and move themselves up to 4th in the Conference points standings! They knocked off Smash It Sports/Thunder/Chosen/Pure/RF/BD/TDB (NY-Major) 37-25 in the semifinals and upset minded Bay Area Legends (CA-AA) 34-8 in the winner’s final which ended up being the championship game due to Sundays games getting rained out. Monsta/Albicocco/Racks/Nitro Circus (CA-Major) who lost to Bay Area in the semifinals finished 3rd after beating Chick-fil-a/Slugger/BAF/LBT (VA-AA) late Saturday night in the 4th place game. The tournament had 41 teams and was played at the Mid America Ballyard and River City West softball complexes on 300 foot dirt fields in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Due to me working on livestream issues the entire weekend on 10 fields I do not have the normal amount of content but a full report, picture album, condensed games, video clips, and rankings are still coming this week on ConferenceUSSSA.com! I did get a couple condensed games like Rock Run vs Maven, MPT vs SIS, MPT vs Bay Area Legends.
