The USSSA 'B' World Tournament is in the books and it was Chaps/BWW/Worth/Buzini from Mississippi taking the title as they went an undefeated 6-0 to with the prestigious title.  They beat Team Adiktiv/Dynasty/D2E/LS/TYJA 32-24 in the winner's final and surprising B&B/Sears/BMW Insulation/Easton 25-16 in the finals.  Chaps averaged a tournament best 22.6 runs per game in the heat and humidity that kept scores down.  31 teams took to the fields, 25 were 'B' teams, 6 were 'C' teams, and 19 of them were from the Nationwide Conference USSSA.  The teams travelled from 18 different states!

The tournament started on Friday afternoon with a big upset as Bella's/MOJO/Miken a 'C' team out of Ohio upset highly ranked Famous/Premier/Easton in a come from behind win 26-21.  Also Valley Motors/Reebok/Easton/VTS from Rhode Island smoked Head Hunters/OI Livingston/MWA 20-2 and then beat ASPNation.com/Easton 11-9 on a 2 out bottom of the 7th walk off homer by player/sponsor John Redihan.

Also on Friday night, #1 seed Pure Romance trailed B&B/Sears 16-13 in the 5th inning when they got a couple of nice defensive stops and a fight broke out which shifted the momentum and the game in favor of B&B/Sears 25-10.

The action was fast and furious as many of the top teams hopes of winning the 'B' World went up in smoke in the Florida heat on Saturday.  FBI, Precision, Famous, and OC Swats among others knocked each other out of the double elimination tournament. When the sun finally went down it was Chaps and Team Adiktiv in the winner's bracket championship game where Chaps won by 8 as both teams traded 3 and 4 run homers.  On Sunday morning in the final 4 B&B/Sears used a huge last inning to beat Valley Motors after the score was tied going into the 7th.  Then B&B/Sears upset big favorite Team Adiktiv in the loser's bracket championship with constant offensive pressure.  In the championship B&B ran out of gas and Chaps took home the big hardware.  All of the top teams seemed to be healthy coming in and had their entire rosters which made for some great matchups.

The celebration is on for Chaps!

Interesting that only 6% picked Chaps to win.  I actually picked Chaps to win and Adiktiv to play in the winner's final but then I didn't have Adiktiv in the my final 5 which obviously can't happen.

Team by team notes brought to you by:


 

1st Place – Chaps/BWW/Buzini

Conf 'B' from MS  6-0 Record

Chaps win was a true team effort as all 18 players contributed.  Chaps has offensive specialists, defensive specialists, and pitching specialists but they all chipped in and they all chipped in on both sides of the ball.  To single out names seems a little silly when everyone played their role to perfection all weekend long and manager Steven Gentry ended the championship game in true team fashion by getting every player into the game.

Chaps is sponsored by Jarvis Chappell who has been around the game a long time and really stepped in to help this team finish the season.  He was rewarded by a great effort and a World Title!

Congratulations to the entire Chaps team.  It really didn't seem to matter who went into the game, they played for the team, and they are World 'B' Champs!

2nd Place – B&B/Sears/BMW Insulation/Easton

Conf 'B' from NC  7-2 Record

 

B&B/Sears came out of nowhere to claim 2nd place.  All year you could count the quality wins that they had in Conference play on one hand!  But this goes to show you never give up.  This team drove to Florida for the 'B' Worlds.  They won 7 games against top 'B' opponents and they did so with 12 players.  Another great effort and it just goes to show you how evenly matched this tournament was from team #1 to team #25.  The B&B offense never gave up and in a few games the defense shut down opponents to single digits.

They were led by 3rd baseman Ed Locklear who was making backhand plays on the chalk and gunning runners from the grass as well as diving plays in the hole and popping to his feet to get an out, all while holding down the 2 spot in the lineup.  Bill Rhew was working on an MVP weekend with the glove and the bat.  They were tough up the middle with Rhew at MI, Matt Bunn a new player in CF different from the Baugh Ford Matt Bunn, and new pitcher Paul Winner who did a workhorse job on the mound.

3rd Place – Team Adiktiv/Dynasty/D2E/LS/TYJA

Conf 'B' from GA  4-2 Record

 

Team Adiktiv won their first four games against a variety of opponents from all over the country.  But the best offensive 'B' team in the country got slowed down in both the winner's final against Chaps and in the loser's final against B&B/Sears.  This was still a great team and a great effort as Cam Byars has really stepped up his game at pitcher and lead off, Tommy Melton made 2 or 3 of the most spectacular diving plays of the tournament, and Josh Wiggs, Jason Gilfillan, and Jason Magnum powered the team offensively.  There was a nice assist by Gilfillan, a spectacular fence robbing homer by CF Matt Rando, and some hard picks and clutch hits by 3rd baseman Drew Pinkney.

This team needs to really bring it this week at the Major as they are one of the more entertaining teams in the nation with a lot of up and coming talent.

Hats off to manager Donnie Munford and sponsor Greg Millsaps for putting together a great group of players that were somewhat under the radar.

4th Place – Valley Motors/Reebok/Easton/VTS

'B' from RI  4-2 Record

 

Valley Motors got off to the great start crushing Head Hunters and hitting a walk off HR to beat ASPNation on Friday night.  But the non-conference team from Rhode Island wasn't done or satisfied with that as they went on Saturday to beat B&B/Sears 17-14, lost to Team Adiktiv by just 2 runs, then beat Precision late on Saturday night to make it to Sunday.  On Sunday they jumped out to a nice lead against B&B/Sears but couldn't hold on as B&B had a late surge and beat them 24-19.

Valley Motors has some veteran players like Lou Mongelli of ABS fame (among other teams), and a great nucleus of hard nosed softball players like Mike McGoogan (an underrated pitcher and great hitter), John Redihan, and Kirby Murphy.  They pieced together a nice team with clutch hitters and some speed and ball blocking defense in the right spots.  Valley Motors looks to play Nationwide Conference ball in 2014 and we the fans look forward to seeing it.

Tied 5th Place – Precision/Hangrite/Athletics

Conf 'B' from IL  5-2 Record

Precision opened with a late inning come back and walk off hit to beat Doc's Softball Club 12-11.  Then they lost an extra innings game to OC Swats 16-15.  In the loser's bracket on Saturday they impressively sent home 4 Conference 'B' opponents before losing to Valley Motors by 10.  Precision made the World Series so it will be fun to get to see some of these players play on the big stage and they have positioned themselves, if they take the next step, as one of the top 'B' teams going into 2014 where the expectations will be much greater.

Tied 5th Place – Xtreme/Miken

Conf 'B' from MN  3-2 Record

Xtreme had 3 great wins to start, all of which were still in question late in the game.  The fairy tale ride ended with a 4 run loss to Chaps in the semi-finals and a late night Saturday two run loss to B&B Sears.  Xtreme has a nice mix of veterans like Kyle Decker and Dustin Palm at the top of the lineup and some younger up and coming players like Dan Skelly, Bremmer, and the O'Connell brothers contributing.  This was a fun team to see have some success after a tough season in the Conference.  They also play a little bit "old school" with a veteran management staff and a vocal roster of players that get into the game and support each other.

The rest of the 'B' World teams:


 

7th OH – Pure romance/chic's/insanity/easton  3-2  – PRI lost a hard fought game to B&B Sears in their opener 25-20.  With the score at a 16-13 deficit for PRI, their pitcher Roger Bias instigated a bench clearing brawl that swung the momentum and the game over to B&B.  The blame for the fight goes squarely to the "Bear" and B&B and the rest of the PRI team did nothing wrong in my opinion.  In the future the umpires should probably just toss the instigator in this situation because allowing him to continue could only result in a fight.  After consecutive great defensive plays by the PRI defense, their pitcher went over to the B&B sidelines and attempted to "intimidate" them with words as well as flagrant arm gestures.  Finally the B&B managers had had enough and attacked Bear in a swarm which at one point laying on top of him under a pile of players.  It is one thing to get fired up, it is completely another thing to get fired up and belittle your opponent 15 feet from their dugout…twice.

Enough said on the fight.  Bear and one of the B&B managers were tossed and play resumed, no one was worse for the wear.  Back in 2011 there was a bench clearing fight between Laservision and GTL and nothing came of it.  I expect nothing else will come of this, and it should not.  PRI regrouped to win 3 hard fought games in the loser's bracket before losing late Saturday to Precision 20-18 in a game either team could have won.


7th CA – OC SWATS/EASTON  3-2  – Swats played a lot of close games.  They had an extra innings win against Precision and had a chance to beat Team Adiktiv but lost by 3.  In the loser's bracket they beat Bella's before B&B Sears shut them down.


9th CA – Famous/Premier/Easton  3-2  – Famous scored 9 runs in the first inning of their opener including a pinch hit grand slam homer with two outs against Bella's.  But they never did put Bella's away and ended up losing 26-21 in the most entertaining of the early Friday games. They did win 3 games in the loser's bracket before B&B Sears shut them down.  For a while there I thought Famous might pull out a Sunday finish even after losing their first game.


9th AR – Fence brokers/hubs pub/gts/worth  2-2  –   FBI beat their first two opponents 52-11 and had their eye on the prize.  But they couldn't get past that 3 PM "heat of the day" game and lost two in a row.  They had the bats in their hands with the winning run at the plate in the Xtreme quarter final game but came up short.  FBI actually has a losing record against 'B' teams this year which is hard to believe.  Maybe they can upset someone at the Major.  They do have a great roster, each person just needs to step it up on both sides of the ball.


9 OH – Bellas/MOJO/Miken 3-2  – Bella's was one of the surprise teams of the tournament as they upset Famous on Friday night in a come from behind victory 26-21!  After a bad loss 24-7 to 3rd Street, they knocked off YOLO and Checking before being Swatted 16-10.  There is some great young talent on the Bella's team.


9th OH – 3rd street/louisville slugger 2-2  –   3rd Street beat their first two opponents 39-8 then the offense disapeared in two losses to top Conference 'B' teams.


13 TX – ASPNation.com/Easton  2-2  – ASPNation was one play away from beating Valley Motors in their second winner's game on Friday night.  But the walk off homer sent them deep into the loser's bracket where they won one and lost one.  ASP never had the confidence in the second half of the year that they played with in the first half.


 

 

13 MI – P&P 333/suburban/larry/mojo/easton 2-2  –   Beat Old School and Head Hunters pretty good but didn't fair to well against Adiktiv or Precision.  A frustrating year ends.


13th MA – DEI/S&S/Scott's/Easton  2-2  –  DEI/S&S/Scott's won their opener against NE rival Checking and scored decent runs in every game they played.  They also knocked off Vivid.  They played much better after picking up Brandon Jonas to pitch.  Probably exited a little early in a 11-10 loss to Famous.


 

13 CT – ChecKing/Worth 2-2  –   Checking lost their opener to DEI/Scott's in another game that should never have been scheduled for the first round since the two teams are from the Northeast?  Then they played 3 'C' teams in a row in the loser's bracket, winning two of them.

 


17th MI – Trust/ detroit elite/ easton/ mojo 1-2  – Trust beat Vivid by the run rule then had a shot late in the game against Chaps but lost 16-12 and was finished off by a veteran Checking team.  Trust plays better when they play against the top teams.


 

17 TX – Vivid / softballmix.com / tyja  1-2  –   Vivid was run ruled by Trust and DEI and beat a local 'C' team.  Tough weekend.

 


 

Two and a nice view for Head Hunters (sorry couldn't resist)

17th GA – Head hunters / oi livingston / mwa  1-2  – HH scored two runs against Valley Motors?  Then they beat Rochester with some good offense and was sent home by P&P 333.  Bad weekend.



17th GA – Primetime/easton/elite/broughton rx 0-2  – Prime dropped two close ones to B&B and Precision.  0-2 after consecutive weekends scoring world titles in BSC and WSL was unexpected.


17th FL – YOLO/Anarchy 1-2  – Yolo won by forfeit.


17th TX – Old School/Elite 1-2  – This team should be commended for stepping up to 'B' this year and they did finish with a 10-9 record vs the 'B' division!  They lost their opener to P&P 333 and only scored 2 runs.  But they did get a quality win over Tharaldson before leaving.


17th FL – Doc's Softball Club 1-2  – Doc's led Precision 10-3 in the 5th inning in their opener but lost by 1 in the 7th.  Then they beat AZM by a run on Saturday before being sent home by Pure Romance 14-10.  Doc's still has a few remnants of the Kirby Investments team that won the 'B' Worlds in 2005.


17 MI – TG Brand.MOJO.Easton  0-2  – TG drew two top teams in FBI and Famous.  They will dust themselves off and come back for 'C' Worlds this week.


 


25 NJ – Deluxe Bakery 0-2  –   The Bakery boys weren't their usual hard nosed selves and only scored 6 runs in two games.



25 NY – Rochester athletic club / jammedup 0-2  – Last years 'C' World Champ dropped two to mid-level conference teams but kudos for stepping up and I hope to see this team and KBI in the Conference soon.



25 IL – KBI/OA Athletics 0-2  – KBI lost to Xtreme and Checking.  They should fair much better this week in the 'C' World.


25 TX – South Texas Posse 0-2 – No showed


25 AZ – AZM  0-2  – AZM only scored 15 runs in two games.  They had a "head scratching" draw playing OC Swats a team based very close to Arizona in the first round.  I am not sure why the bracket makers continue to make mistakes  like this for first round games?  Tarwater? in the middle made some great plays and almost kept them in the games.


25th FL – Team Miken 0-2  – Went scoreless against Chaps in their opener but fought hard before losing to Vivid on Saturday morning.



25 ND – Tharaldsons/easton/extreme graphics 0-2  – Two and out for a very talented Tharaldson team.  They fought hard on Friday to come back and tie their game against Team Adiktiv at 14-14 going to the bottom of the 7th but lost 15-14 then Old School sent them home in an upset 13-11 on Saturday.  Tharaldson had some spectacular defensive plays by shortstop Scott Roen who may have been the best defensive shortstop in the tournament.  With a better draw Tharaldson could have been a top 7 team.
