As I see it..other then a very few teams softball no longer has many national champions..softball has naturally ended up regional..like it mostly was when it was thriving.
Heck..my guess is...there are very few teams that go to Disney events/worlds that play as many usssa events as the conference reguires to qualify for the series.
Who knows.. Many DDT will not follow completely in his fathers footsteps and get usssa to focus once again on growing its softball program.
As itís looking..for the majority of the country usssa has lost all his glow..itís no better then whatever local association is trying to compete with it.
The sad part is...less and less softball players even care about ever attempting to move up...Donny it and on the west coast Danny Brown might have grown the usssa bank account over all..but they more or less bankrupted the western half of the usssa country.. Danny retired with nothing to show for all his early years of growing a great western half of the country usssa softball program....I used to think both he and Donny jr were great softball men...in the end sadly...I believe I was mistaken..they were nothing more thencarpet baggers...
Time will tell..but I sure hope DDT is not just like his dad when it comes to softball.
