NAFA AA-Major World Series has strong field

Written by Bob on July 4th, 2013


DES MOINES, IOWA – When it comes to parity, it appears that the NAFA AA-Major World Series is wide open with no clear-cut favorite.

Four of the 15 teams are ranked in the top-25 in the world of men’s fastpitch: The Kegel Black Knights are No. 7; Pete’s Blues, No. 13; the Cal-State Builders, No. 20; The Topeka Toros, No. 23, and New Image No. 24…

But I wouldn’t bet against any of the rest of the field in taking the crown. Just look at the past history of some of these ball clubs and the “who’s who” they have throwing for them.

This promises to be a great NAFA AA-Major World Series Championship that runs from Aug. 7 to 9 in Des Moines and West Des Moines, Iowa.

1) San Antonio Titans, Texas (defending AA-Major Champions)

2) New Image, Wisconsin (defending AA-Major Runner Up & Former AA-Major and AA Champions)

3) Kegel Black Knights (One of the top U.S. Based teams in Fastball)

4) Pete’s Blues, Illinois (One of the top U.S. Based teams in Fastball)
