Friday at the Busch!

B&B Drywall/Easton, a 'C' team based out of Missouri won the 35th Annual Busch/Pepsi Classic.  They went an undefeated 5-0 and knocked off fellow Nationwide USSSA team ASPNation/Dynasty/Reset/Easton 21-15 in the championship on Sunday afternoon.

The tournament began on Friday, July 4th with 21 teams overall and 7 Conference teams.  All of the teams were either from the USSSA 'B' or 'C' divisions.  Conference teams vying for a tournament win while the big Major and 'A' teams were away, ended up being upset left and right.  Central Arkansas Aftershock, a 'C' team knocked off both ASPNation 19-17 and JTF/Louisville Slugger to make it to the winners bracket championship game.

Another Arkansas 'C' team J&R Logistics knocked off LA Classic 22-14 and Nightmare 24-14 to make it to the semi-finals where they were beat by B&B Drywall.  B&B made it to the finals by knocking off tournament favorite Fence Brokers 28-21.

So when everything shook out, it was B&B Drywall who has had an amazing season beating Aftershock 18-3 in the winners final. ASPNation finished second by winning 5 straight in the losers bracket including an 18-2 win over Aftershock in the losers final to make it to the championship.  Aftershock finished 3rd and another non-conference 'C' team Pro Gutter finished an impressive 4th.

The Busch had over 120 total teams participating over 5 different divisions.

Note: B&B Drywall/Easton was bumped to 'B' after the tournament.
