WARSAW, Ind. – The CR Brewers battled through the loser’s bracket to defeat the Topeka Toros twice to claim the 2015 NAFA World Series, AA-Major championship, Friday.

The Brewers came into the World Series as defending champions, having won the title in the Quad Cities in 2014.

The Portland ball club began the day with a 1-0 victory over the Cal State Builders, followed by a 6-3 win over the Bruno Merchants. That set up the first meeting with the undefeated Toros who finished round robin play 4-0 to grasp the No. 1 seed.

But the Brewers proved the stronger team on the day, twice knocking off the Kansas club, 4-2 and 2-1, to come away with the championship.

Rob Schweyer got the win in the “if necessary” game with relief help from Josh Johnson, who was selected the AA-Major Most Valuable Player, while his teammate Jorge Segura earned Most Valuable Pitcher honors.

ALL-WORLD TEAM

  • Brewers: Ryan Daly, Rob Schweyer and Nick Green
  • Pepperjacks: Rob Doiran
  • Cal State Builders: Shawn Koster and Kyle Sherwood
  • Bruno Merchants: Lewis Weldon, Justin Dauvin and Matt Hillier
  • Topeka Toros: Matt Chambers, Carlos Ucero, Matt Thornton and Rick Manson
  • NAFA AA-Major World Series has strong field

    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.
