BHR/Coppermine Lodge/ASP/Worth “double dips” to win 2016 USSSA ‘A’ Worlds! (Picture Album)

 

 

2016 USSSA 'A' World Tournament

 

Kissimmee, FL

 

August 19-21

 

1st Place – BHR/Coppermine Lodge/ASP/Worth (TX)

 

BHR/Coppermine Lodge/ASP/Worth the #1 seeded 'A' Team in the nation came back from a 17-14 loss on Saturday night in the winner's bracket finals against Thunder/Miken/Blowoutpicks.com from New York to "double dip" Thunder 24-23 and 23-2 in the final game to win the 2016 USSSA 'A' Worlds Championship!  Thunder scored to take a 2 run lead going into the bottom of the 7th of the first championship game (23-21) but it wasn't enough as BHR leadoff man Tyler Driskell and MVP Mike Brown set up Tim "Bye Bye" Bowser with a walk off 3 run homer and the rest was slow pitch history. Bay Area Legends from California who lost their first game of the tournament to Steel Athletics came through the loser's bracket with 5 straight wins to finish 3rd.  And Bad Draw who seemed to be rolling through the winner's bracket wound up 4th after running into a couple of hot teams (Thunder and Bay Area Legends).  Primetime and Steel Athletics finished tied for 5th.  Primetime won in extra innings against #2 seed JBL/Tailgaters and then scored 15 runs in the bottom of the 7th to beat Semper!  The tournament was loaded with walk off home runs, great plays, and clutch performances from the beginning.

Congratulations to all those teams that left it all on the field this past weekend!
