The 2013 NAFA Open World Series in Fargo, North Dakota was a huge success this past weekend and we want to thank these people for making it such a great experience for the teams, players and fans. The NAFA Website is at nafafastpitch.com

Tournament Director Kyle Koterba did an extraordinary job with the event and was a great host to the 10 teams, players and their fans that participated. Kyle did a great job moving the tourney to another park after the main park which had flooded earlier this year was unplayable.

Thanks to NAFA Vice Presidents Jon Kegel and Mike Watson and to ISC President Dean Oscar for attending. Special thanks also to Team USA Selection Committee Members Warren Jones and Andy Dooley for attending the event which brought some excitement to the ball park.

Thanks to Bob Otto of www.ottoinfocus.com for some very enjoyable stories throughout the weekend. Here is Bob’s Championship Game story link: Sooke Loggers Claim NAFA Open Title

    Your standings are wrong Randy’s A’s were 3-2
    Lost to Sooke in semi final 6-4.

  2. Bob says:

    Robert, you are right about Randy’s record, which I have corrected, but as far as the score between Sooke and Randy’s, iScore has it at 7-4. I wasn’t at the tournament, and did my reporting from California, so all I have to go by is what appears on iScore. Please reference this link for verification. If iScore is wrong, please show me where, and I will correct it. Thanks Robert for making me aware!
