Championship game – Dan Smith's Dennis Rulli hits against Andy Purcell and Smash it Sports!

1st Place – Smash It/Thunder/Backman/TDB/S&S/Miken

 

Smash It Sports is back in a big way as they went 6-0 to win the prestigious Windy City Invitational, their second tournament win in a row!  The 29 team field was riddled with upsets throughout the tournament as the 3 'AA' teams (Pure Sports, TDB, and Racks) at the top of the bracket all fell quickly to the loser's bracket opening up a TG Brand vs Premier semifinal (two 'A' teams).  In the lower part of the bracket the 3 major teams were seeded 1, 4, and 5 and Resmondo was upset 28-13 by Rapid Fire Athletics an 'A' team from Virginia, and eliminated by Pure Sports on Saturday when Pure Sports scored 34 runs in the top of the 1st inning!  But the two other Major teams, Dan Smith and Smash It Sports emerged to play in the semifinals.  In the semis Smash It Sports ended up beating Dan Smith by the run rule 47-32 and TG Brand held down Premier 36-26.  And it was all Smash It Sports the rest of the way as they beat TG Brand in the winner's final 32-11, and then in the championship on Sunday they came from behind in the bottom of the 6th with no homer's left and turned up the defense on Dan Smith late in the game to win 46-45.

A full report with archived games will be posted as completed on SoftballCenter.com!
