The Champions: No Talent AZ Clowns
The defending champions repeated this year with their back-to-back Championship through the winner's
bracket of the tournament's double-elimination process. Congratulations, No Talent AZ Clowns!
The Runners-up: Raising Arizona.
After winning a one-run game, Raising Arizona moved into the Final Four through the loser's bracket
where they then survived back-to-back extra inning games to advance to play in the Championship game.
Third Place: Yellow Journalists.
When their preliminary group pool's games were delayed by the hurricane's rain, the Yellow Journalists needed to play a minimum of 5 games on Championship night with the possibility of a maximum of 8 games. After winning their first 3 games, they moved into the Final Four round through the winner's bracket where they advanced to the semi-final game before going to the loser's bracket and placing third when they lost a one-run game in extra innings...all day playing with barely a full lineup...who began to run out of gas in their fifth, and last, game of the day!
Fourth Place: ALL VOLS.
After winning games by the 10-run slaughter rule, the ALL VOLS moved into the Final Four - for their first time in team history - through the loser's bracket where they survived a one-run game before losing in extra innings to place fourth in the tournament.
...Or the hitting of another female player from the ALL VOLs team.
By the end of the day as the sun sets, having arrived at 8 AM, Peso gives that look that asks,
"Can't I get a little rest around here?"
