2021 Women's Crown Town Classic

 

 

 

Smash It Sports/Derby Girls/Easton went undefeated at the Crown Town Classic beating home state Greenspace/First Watch/Dudley 9-7 in the winner's final Saturday night and Classic Glass/Easton/Dirty/Trojans 15-14 in extra innings in the championship game on Sunday morning!  Derby Girls won on a walk off homer in the bottom of the 8th by Fiana Finau.  There were 12 teams in the tournament and 7 of them were from the Nationwide Conference USSSA league.  

Note: During the championship game Chelsea Davis the Derby Girls all star third baseman injured her leg possibly a knee.  We wish her the best in her diagnosis and recovery and hope to see her back on the field soon.

Interviews by Ebony: During the tournament, I got to catch up with Smash It Sports/Derby Girls/Easton local player Jess Tolbert for a interview. I asked Jess Tolbert what it takes to be successful at the next level. She stated, “It takes dedication and practice, BP sessions and strength training. You need the right mindset to take the knowledge and criticism in order to grow to become better.” I also asked her how she felt about the competition in the tournament. She stated, “Not a single team here that wasn’t competitive. Seeing 7 conference and 5 non conference teams compete, can’t wait to see what next year brings. There is so much talent in the Midwest, Im glad to see local teams compete and finish strong.” Unlike the men’s side, all the women’s games went to 4 innings or more. I did get one more interview. This one was unique because I interviewed Jessica Stroud, the coach of the C team Nally Girl’s, whose team is playing their first major and jumping from ASA to USSSA on the road to Worlds in October. The team finished 5th beating out 4 of 7 conference teams. I asked Jessica what made her team successful in the tournament and what advice could she give for others who are wanting to put a team in next year to compete. She stated, “Chemistry is everything. The players build that bond and trust in one another. As a coach, you have to be the motivation and example. Having variety of players that can play any position at any given time helps the team grow.” As the women’s program continues to grow each year, we can’t wait to see all the talent at the next MWUSSSA presents: Crown Town Major Dual in 2022.

The Smash It Sports/Derby Girls/Easton Major team reeling from the tragic loss of their power hitter and leader Christan Dowling last week took to the fields in Arizona after an emotional tribute ceremony Friday night and proceeded to destroy their competition.  They went 5-0 on the weekend and won the 13 team Women's Major by out scoring their opponents a dominating 90 runs to 8.  They knocked off Infamous 12-2 in the winner's final Saturday and then beat Classic Glass, who had won 5 straight in the loser's bracket, 15-0 in the championship game on Sunday.

Las Vegas "Sin City" Classic

Big League Dreams Park

Las Vegas, Nevada

3/26 – 3/28

1st Place – Smash It Sports/Derby Girls/Easton (WA-M)

 

The 2021 Women’s Conference USSSA season kicked off in Las Vegas, NV with 17 teams in the women’s major bracket, with 12 being members of Conference USSSA. With cooler temperatures on Friday night, the ball was flying out of Big League Dreams. This resulted in 7 of the 9 first round games ending by run rule. It was apparent early on the Smash It Sports/Derby Girls/Easton would be tough to beat with the cooler temperatures, lively ball and BLD field dimensions. They had multiple back-to-back homeruns in early games, some of epic length, which would not have mattered what size fields they were playing on.

The other two major teams in the tournament, Lady SNI/LazyLlama/DeMarini/LS and MPT Rentals/AOB/Juno Athletics came out swinging as well. Lady SNI/LazyLlama/DeMarini/LS defeated MPM/Hitting Bombs Apparel/APS, a B Team out California 25-3, and MPT Rentals/AOB/Juno Athletics defeated A team Supra Sportz/ProStytch out California 18-2 to both advance into the second round. SFK/Slugger Custom Uniforms got it done on both sides of the ball as they crushed Smash It/Backman/PH//Tunie/Masamii 23-0 to advance into the second round.

Lady SNI/LazyLlama/DeMarini/LS and MPT Rentals/AOB/Juno Athletics would both suffer losses in their next games against two revamped A teams. NTL/GSSPORTS/WORTH defeat MPT Rentals/AOB/Juno Athletics 16-14 in a tight back and forth game. INFAMOUS/BAYAREA/SALTRIOT/Spiderz defeated Lady SNI/LazyLlama/DeMarini/LS 17-9 to advance. Keep your eye on both Infamous and NTL/GSSPORTS/WORTH, both these teams play with a lot of confidence and watching them play, you can see why. These two would meet up twice this weekend including the next round where Infamous defeated NTL/GSSPORTS/WORTH 22-15 to set up a winner bracket final matchup with Smash It Sports/Derby Girls/Easton. After a slow start, Smash It Sports/Derby Girls/Easton went on to defeat SFK/Slugger Custom Uniforms by run rule 15-2.

In the winners bracket final, INFAMOUS/BAYAREA/SALTRIOT/Spiderz became the first team to play all 7 innings with Smash It Sports/Derby Girls/Easton, but the long ball once again powered Smash It Sports/Derby Girls/Easton to a 17-11 victory. Sunday morning featured a Lady SNI/LazyLlama/DeMarini/LS vs NTL/GSSPORTS/WORTH matchup for the 4th place game. Lady SNI/LazyLlama/DeMarini/LS fought their way out of the loser’s bracket to make it to championship Sunday. After finishing after midnight and then experiencing car trouble, the 8am start did not bode well for Lady SNI/LazyLlama/DeMarini/LS and they lost out in a close one in one of the lowest scoring games of the tournament 8-7.

NTL/GSSPORTS/WORTH would wake up in the 3rd place game and run rule Infamous 19-6 to set up a championship game with Smash It Sports/Derby Girls/Eastonv. But as had been the case all weekend, the power of Smash It Sports/Derby Girls/Easton would power them to a decisive victory. Megan Baltzell and Fiana Finau led the offensive charge with a monstrous game from Fiana Finau going 4-4, with 4 homeruns. Faced with the bases loaded and the winning run by rule on 3rd base, NTL/GSSPORTS/WORTH had no choice but to pitch to Fiana Finau. And she ended the game in grand fashion with a monstrous opposite field home run to give the Smash It Sports/Derby Girls/Easton a strong start to the season 21-5. Next stop for the women’s conference schedule will be the Hall of Fame Dual in Viera with 16 conference teams on tap.
