SACRAMENTO ASA AWARDED THE 2015 USA/ASA NATIONAL

Considered one of the Big 5 of the National Tournaments handed out by the Amateur Softball Association (ASA) Sacramento was up against some formidable competition in the voting for the ASA/USA 12 A National Championships. Due to the way votes are calculated, and the Country is divided by ASA, the majority of votes are held in the East and South Territories. Given those circumstances it is very difficult to land an ASA/USA National Championship on the West Coast.

It had been since 2005 that Sacramento ASA has had its turn to bid on a USA/ASA National Championship. At that time Sacramento was up against Montgomery, Alabama which has one of the finest softball facilities in the Country and provides an outstanding breakfast for all the Council Members on the day of the vote. At that time Sacramento won the tournament by 1 vote! The tournament was the ASA/USA 12 A National Championship. As it turned out, we were bidding for that same event in 2013. Read More.
