    Xtreme had their ring ceremony and party celebrating their 2017 USSSA 'AA' World title!


The 36th Annual Dudley Budweiser Classic became a weekend of celebration for the Minnesota based Xtreme/Miken/ASP/Athlon 'AA' team as they celebrated their 2017 USSSA 'AA' World championship with a ring ceremony, a party, and then went out and won their first ever Dudley tournament championship!  The tournament began on Friday in 90+ degree temperatures with 26 teams on the 310 foot fenced fields, 12 HR limit for most games, and using the Dudley Classic M ball.  In the "play in" games Clark Builders a 'D' team upset Infamous/Salt Riot a Conference 'B' team 13-7.  Scores were low in this tournament for the most part.  In the round of 16, 6 of the remaining Conference teams advanced as Nightmare (MO-AA), Chanticlear Pizza (MN-A), Xtreme (MN-AA), and TDB (NC-AA) all won by the run rule.  While Stars (CO-A) won on a walk off homer by Pat Farrell 22-21 over Eurotech, and Racks (IN-AA) struggled past Pepper Farms 29-23.  And two non conference teams slipped into the "final 8" as Comatose (WI-B) knocked off Conference team Nally's (MO-A) 14-10, and T's 13 (MN-A) team beat Clark Builders 28-5.

    In the "round of 8", Nightmare crushed Comatose 27-7, Xtreme got past fellow Minnesota Conference team Chanticlear 21-17, TDB squeaked one out 29-28 over T's 13, and Stars had a walk off homer by Kyndrich Doggett to beat Racks 25-24.  In the semifinals late Saturday afternoon Xtreme scored 8 runs in the bottom of the 6th to take an 18-16 lead on Nightmare and held Nightmare scoreless in the top of the 7th to win.  And in the other semifinal, TDB broke a 16-16 tie with Stars by scoring 27 runs in the top of the 6th inning and won 44-26.  Jason Martel was 6-6 with 1 HR and 7 RBI in the win.

    In the winner's bracket championship Xtreme scored 17 runs on 7 homers in the top of the 1st inning against TDB.  In the bottom of the first Xtreme got a couple of nice defensive plays by Brandon Newman to hold down TDB and Xtreme led 17-3 after 1 inning,  26-3 after 3.5 innings, and used some more good defense by Newman to hold TDB scoreless in the bottom of the 4th and won by the 20 run mercy rule.

    In the loser's bracket the teams dropping down pretty much won their next game except for Racks/Worth Astros who beat Starkey/Syndicate, T's 13, Nightmare, and Stars to make it to the Sunday final 3.  On Sunday morning during the first game between Racks and TDB there was a lightning delay followed by a thunder storm that washed out the games.  So Xtreme won their first Dudley undefeated, TDB and Racks split the 2nd and 3rd place points, and of course Stars finished 4th, with Nightmare and Chanticlear tied for 5th.
