2014 USSSA Women’s Major Slow Pitch World Series

2014 held at Orlando, Florida.


Women’s World series was cancelled. The Highest Class played in 2014 was Class B. Enough Said did not play USSSA and every other Class A team dropped to Class B and there was nobody to play in the Women’s World Series, so it was cancelled.

USSSA changed the name of their World Series to the Women’s MAJOR World Series in 2015. They still had the regular World Series like they been running since 1969. But they wanted to restrict some players from all playing on the same teams in the Class-A event to make it more evenly matched.

Just for information purposes, here are the results for the Class B World Series.


Champion – Minnesota North Stars, St. Paul, Minnesota
Runner Up – Washington Worth, Olympia, Washington

  • Defensive MVP – Carri Phelps, Washington Worth
