Once in the loser’s bracket, CDI of Oklahoma City eliminated Smythe Sox 17-16 and then eliminated Stone City Cannans of San Antonio 18-9 in the loser’s bracket. Then, while they were about to play Texas Sports in the loser’s bracket final for the right to play Steele’s for the championship, the rains came and washed away the tournament. Undefeated Steele’s (7-0) was declared the champ, CDI won a coin flip over Texas sports to claim second place. Stone City was fourth, while the Smythe Sox (5-2) and Budweiser Right On of Houston tied for fifth. Mike Macenko recorded 21 consecutive hits to start the tournament on his way to the MVP Award.
