Remember the 2023 Conference USSSA articles, reports, stats, videos can be found at this year!



JBL pitcher Mason Farmer stabs a hot shot off the bat of S&E's Freddie Bynum in the winner's final of Dual #1. 

The 2023 Pocket City Dual was played at the 8 field Deaconess Sports Park in Evansville, Indiana in hot and humid weather over a 4 day period (August 10-13).  The top 33 men's teams and top 19 women's teams in the Conference USSSA battled it out in two tournaments each.  The upsets came early and often in the men's dual #1 as all 4 Major teams got put into the loser's bracket by 'AA' teams and 3 of the Major teams wound up on the same side of the loser's bracket and knocked each other out.  When it was all said and done JBL/D1/Tailgaters/Ignite a 'AA' team out of Ohio wound up knocking off Resmondo/SIS/All American/Menosse (FL-Major) who hadn't lost a game since April, then beat Competitive Edge/Suncoast/FBI/Olmito (FL-Major) in the semifinals, and then they beat S&E/Baugh Ford/Proton (NC-AA) in the winner's bracket finals which you can see here in condensed form, and then again in the championship on Friday.  Competitive Edge was 3rd and Roofx/Revolution/Albicocco/All Hustle (IN-AA) was 4th. In the 2nd men's dual another 'AA' team Sports Reach/Demarini/CT/LLS (KY-AA) went on a run in the winner's bracket beating S&E (NC-AA), MPT Rentals/Juno Athletics (NJ-Major), Competitive Edge (FL-Major), and Monsta/Sonny's/Worsham/Red Athlete (NC/Major) to win the winner's bracket!  On Sunday Monsta came back through the loser's bracket and beat Competitive Edge in the loser's final and then gutted out a "double dip" of Sports Reach to win dual #2.  MPT wound up 4th.  A full report, picture album, condensed games, video clips, and rankings coming this week on!
