Backman Shoppe Louisville Slugger goes undefeated in Hall of Fame Classic Dual #1
Backman bats against Smash It Sports in the winner's bracket finals
Backman/Shoppe/Louisville Slugger/Powerhouse Sportz/J&H/S&S an Indiana based team cruised through the late rounds of the 1st Hall of Fame Classic Major tournament and went undefeated 6-0 to win the tournament and its coveted 282 Nationwide Conference USSSA points! Backman knocked off rival Major team Smash It Sports/ASP/H.Auto/Mr. Wiggles/Easton based out of New York 19-12 in the winner's bracket finals and 20-4 in the Championship game! The game scores were on the low side due to a lower compression stadium ball (.425) and at times strong winds blowing in. TG/Red's Astros/Headlines/K&G/Worth a 'AA' team from Ohio was the 3rd place finisher at 6-2, Newbreed/GTS/Beus Excavation/Dirty/Worth a 'AA' team out of Washington was 4th, and OC Swats Doerflinger/Miken a 'AA' team from California and JBL/Tailgaters/B&E/Worth a 'A' team from Ohio tied for 5th.
Action resumes on Saturday morning at 8 AM in the Hall of Fame Classic Dual #2.
A full report, video clips, pictures and archived games will be done late Monday night or Tuesday of next week. I have a lot of content.
Note: the "action shots" will be added to this album probably Monday.
