Worth Sports teams stormed the slowpitch postseason this year with titles across the classes! What a wild run of weekends in Central Florida as Resmondo clinched the Conference Championships and the USSSA Men’s Majors World Series, while FBI/Worth topped the USSSA Men’s A title and OC/Miken swept the USSSA Men’s B World Series. How do we top that? With Greg Connell capturing the coveted triple crown in 2015, posting an .811 OBP, 133 home runs and 341 RBIs. It doesn’t get any better than that. OC Swats/Miken captured the B World title by going undefeated and closing it out in thrilling fashion by defeating the hard-hitting and talented CA Sports/ Easton team, 28-27. Great job to both teams, who made this a tournament to remember! In the USSSA Men’s A Worlds, FBI and Precision did battle, with FBI double- dipping the favorites, taking the final game by a score of 28-22 to clinch the World title. It was speculated that Precision would not be beaten, and FBI did it not once, but twice. Fans were treated to grand slams—not once, but twice, courtesy of Tim Bowser—base hits and defense during two great games where both teams gave it their all. In the Men’s Majors, I have to say, “How sweet it is!” Resmondo/Specialty Tank/Worth won the 2015 USSSA Men’s Major Championship, their 10th Men’s Major Championship. Hats off to sponsors Travis Resmondo and John Riccio. This tournament came down to two very exciting games on Saturday. In the winners’ bracket final, the “Sod Boys” defeated a very talented Smash-It Sports/Easton, 26-25, in a seven-inning thriller. SIS then made their way back to the championship round. This came via an unbelievable comeback win, where Smash- It erased a 16-run deficit to defeat Backman/ Shoppe/TPS, 48-47. The stage was set for what would be a great game, with Resmondo pulling out a 39-37 victory to capture the crown and earn Resmondo an amazing 10th Men’s Major Championship! Congratulations to Bubba Mack, Tournament Co-MVP, Nic Santana, Offensive MVP, and Frank “The Tank” Webb, who was selected as manager of the All-Tournament team, joining players Purcell, DeDonatis, Connell, Fulk, Yates, Rulli, and Collins. These boys had one heck of a weekend. An outstanding job by the coaches and players; your hard work and desire to be the best paid off again. On behalf of Worth and Miken, I want to say thank you and we are all proud of you! Finally, Resmondo also grabbed the USSSA Conference tournament, double-dipping Precision, 32-23 and 26-15. Also, don’t forget that Worth product makes a great present! Check out the new Worth line that debuted during the USSSA Major World Series and will be available in December! Until the next season, we’ll see you at the ballyard! -Corny
