The Seattle Frickin A's are champs, winning the 2014 Las Vegas Kickoff Classic in dramatic fashion the weekend of March 8th-10th. The team, principally comprised of PSSBL veterans, competed in the 45+ wood bat tourney sponsored by MSBL National.
Sweeping to a 3-0 record during the preliminary round robin, the A's faced a tough opponent in the semi-final, the So Cal Matanzas. Down to their final out in the bottom of the 9th, Steve Towey hit a walk off 2-run double to seal a 10-9 victory for the A's.
The championship game was also a come-from-behind affair for the A's. Down 4-0 at one point to the Las Vegas Rattlers, the A's battled back to take the lead, but then had to hang on in a seesaw battle, claiming the title with a 13-12 decision in 10 innings.
This marks the second consecutive Vegas championship for a PSSBL-based team. Last year the PSSBL Ravens trophied in the 18+ Division.
