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.

Here is a link to the still pictures from the first Dual event.

Note: the "action shots" will be added to this album probably Monday.

Both Backman above and Smash It Sports below wore Frank Webb tribute jerseys for their first games.

Frank Webb #33 was a longtime manager of Resmondo who passed away this past Saturday.

Backmans Kevin Kennington and Reggie Schulte celebrate another great defensive play.

The softball community mourns the recent loss of Frank Webb and ASA legend Bill Plummer.
