2009 USSSA Men’s Major Slow Pitch World Series

2009 held at Champion Stadium in Osceola, Florida.


Champion – Resmondo/Specialty Tank/Worth, Winter Haven, Florida
Runner Up – T&R Stucco/Worth, Polk City, Florida


This was the year Long Haul Trucking was in the championship game against Resmondo and decided to vacate the tournament. Notice no Long Haul players appear in the All World Team.

What began as a well played and entertaining tournament was marred in the winner’s bracket semi-final game Friday night between Long Haul and Dan Smith when what appeared to be a bat protest by the Dan Smith team turned into a 17 minute debacle in front of the largest crowd in recent softball memory. The end result appears to be the suspension of Long Haul’s star shortstop Brett McCollum who argued after the game with USSSA officials who said his bat compression test was too low. To set the stage for this scene, you have to realize that USSSA has been compression testing bats all year long. At the World Series the testing was being administered right on the field behind home plate so that it could be done as quickly as possible. In the managers meeting teams and players were warned that bats that tested too low could lead to ejection for unsportsmanlike conduct and runs could even be removed from the score.
