Resmondo did it, they won on dirt and on 300 foot fields besting a strong field of 44 teams at the Cincinnati Major July 16-18.  The tournament was played in full but all but the last 2 games were shortened to 5 inning contests to get the tournament completed.  Heavy rains and lightning strikes prevented almost all of the games until about 3 PM Saturday afternoon when the winner's bracket was played straight through until 3 AM in the morning Sunday and finished up restarting at 8 AM.  Resmondo the #3 seed coming into the tournament had run rule wins in their 1st two games and then came from 10 runs down against MPT Rentals to win 37-36 in the quarterfinals.  They then used superior offense to beat Xtreme 39-25 in the semifinals, and their nemesis SNI/Thunder 38-17 in the winner's final, and finished off the tournament with an impressive 21-6 win over Smash It Sports in the championship.  Xtreme finished 4th after forfeiting to Smash It on Sunday morning when their last player Dirk Updike was drilled on the 1st pitch of the loser's bracket semifinals.  SNI finished 3rd again and Chick-fil-a and Juno Athletics two 'A' teams finished an impressive tied for 5th..
