2017 Resmondo/ASP/H.Auto/Specialty Tank/RDD/Easton!


2017 Resmondo/ASP/H.Auto/Specialty Tank/RDD/Easton

The softball world was set into a spin Friday (October 14th) when the dominant sponsor in slow-pitch softball Travis Resmondo who has won 10 USSSA Major World Series titles moved away from his long time partnership with Worth and brought his support to the defending USSSA Major World Series Champions Easton and Brett Helmer, and they will partner with sponsors Jason Wilkins – ASP, Bob Hortenbach – H. Auto, John Riccio – Specialty Tank, and Scott DeLorge – RDD to form the all new Resmondo/ASP/H.Auto/Specialty Tank/RDD/Easton for 2017!

The merger of Resmondo and Easton will bring changes to the roster.  The new roster freshly inked will consist of long time Smash It Sports outfielders Brian Wegman, Buddy Wolf, and Mike Umschied.  Infielders Bubba Mack (Resmondo), Kevin Bazat (SIS), Bryson Baker (SIS), two time Conference Triple Crown winner Greg Connell (Resmondo), and 2016 Major World Series MVP Kyle Pearson.  The pitching will be done by Travis Clark (SIS) and Dan "Dirty" Sanchez (Resmondo).  The Catching/EH spots will be handled by BJ Fulk (Resmondo) and Scott Kirby (SIS).  Utility positions will be filled by SIS veterans Brad Reckart and Chris Hansen.  

The new team will be managed by softball legends Howie Krause and Brett Helmer.  The team will be assisted by Travel Coordinator Shirl Webb and John Glidewell award winner Pete Campbell.

The new Major team could feature one of the best offensive lineups in softball history!

    Dam Smith / Eaton / Worth/ Miken/ LS..???

  6. fan says:

    from what I heard they are going to the losers bracket, or maybe the scene. no chance against the new Team Resmondo lineup. Best roster ever!!!

    • Zoetaite says:

      Wouldn’t say the best roster ever. Lot’s of names, but wait and see how Backman (or whatever they will be called) answers. Can’t even imagine if they can add players (youth) like Santana / Collins and Reyna with what they had last year – WOW! They have the big boppers, but IMO if these guy’s do end up there they will be the best defensive team on the tour. Lots of elite talent still out there.


  7. Jeff says:

    Don’t think this team will mesh right away. They are so used to playing against each other that I think it’s going to take a while. That being said, look out when they do mesh.

    where’s filby?

  9. Jrod says:

    I wanna know what’s gonna happen with the worth guys and bats. Is Connell and bj gonna be swinging Easton or worth. And if not swinging worth what’s gonna happen with previous bats for returns and the pre orders ppl made

    • Jams says:

      My guess would be that they’ll stay with Worth for their signature models. Individual bat/manufacturer contracts seem to supersede team sponsorship contracts. Example: Filby and Pearson both swung Miken all year long on an Easton sponsored team. Izzy swung Miken on a Worth sponsored team.

      Once their contracts run up, maybe they change to Easton for their next signature model. We’ll have to see.

  10. Jrod says:

    Also I know these guys can hit. But it’s gonna be a lil different if they gotta swing Easton after swinging worth all these years. Cause to me worth and miken are on top far as bats go in my opinion. To me Easton isn’t as good. Amd it takes a lil bit to get use too

  11. Paul says:

    Spoke with both izzy and filby and Santana
    All are great guys and know its a business. All
    Will be on new teams next year. And as far as the
    Best team? The 2017 season will tell. There will always
    Have team make last min roster changes. I tell everyone
    This, the new talent pool is now alot bigger with both
    Easton and worth and miken guys now out there. And
    Like we all saw this year. Is any team can beat any team.
    2017…is going to be fun…
