Below are the final brackets from the Mountaineer Showdown.  These are for informational purposes only.  These are the results as they were reported to us as of 6pm on Sunday.  Due to the fact that we are in the middle of our tournament season, no scores will be added or changed for any reason.  We apologize if there are any mistakes.  Thanks for your understanding.

9pm Friday Update

The schedule posted at 7pm is confirmed as the official schedule for Saturday and Sunday.  See you at the fields!

7pm Friday Mountaineer Showdown Update

Below is the revised schedule for Saturday and Sunday.  All other schedules are invalid.  In talking with several coaches, the coaches stated that they would rather play a longer, more authentic game (finish the inning) than play more games with an hour time limit and the drop dead rule.  Therefore we have eliminated one game per team from their scheduled pool play games.  This means that all 12u, 14u, 16u and 18u teams will receive 3 pool play games and 10u will receive 2 pool play games. 

We were able to make all games 1 hour and 15 minutes in length and you will finish the inning.  However, because we must keep the tournament on time especially with only one day of pool play, there will be a 1 hour and 25 minute drop deal rule.  There is also a link below to the drop dead rules.  We don't like to use the drop dead rule, but again, to keep the tournament on time, we have to use it.  For pool play games, game time will start from scheduled start time.  With the drop dead rule in effect and 10 minutes between games, all pool play games will start at the scheduled start time.  Please have your players ready to play.

All Friday parking passes will be valid on Saturday. 

Thanks for your understanding and the weather looks great for tomorrow.  We believe this schedule will be the official schedule but because of the downpour we received today, we will confirm this schedule with the field people by 9pm.  Please check back at 9pm to get the confirmation.  If you have any questions, we will be at the fields at 7am tomorrow morning.

June 13, 14 and 15, 2014

We are looking forward to working with Tom, Mickey, and all the other hard-working volunteers at Godbey fields. The field crew does a great job and they are all volunteer positions. So we invite you to come out , play some good softball that weekend, and reward all their efforts to make Godbey fields the best fields around.

The tournament will be a 5 game guarantee for 12U, 14U, 16U and 18U teams and a 4 game guarantee for 10U teams, so all the girls get lots of ball.  And all pool play games will be 90 minutes in length so all the teams can finish, or come close to finishing, their games. 

So there will be lots of softball in Parkersburg that weekend and we invite you to come join the fun.


Click on the following links for more Tournament Information

  • Mountaineer Showdown Format - All teams will play 4 pool games (except 10U who will play 3 pool play games). Each team will then be seeded in bracket play depending on their record. In age groups with 8 or more teams, the top half of each pool will go in to a Platinum bracket and will play a single elimination tournament. The lower half of each pool will go into a separate Gold division bracket and play a separate single elimination tournament. These brackets will NOT meet. The first and second place teams in each bracket will receive championship medals.  All teams will be able to bat their entire line-up and freely substitute in the field.  These rules and format are used to give the teams the opportunity to give the maximum number of players a chance to play.
  • Mountaineer Showdown Entry Form - Fastpitch Showdowns does not accept entry into any tournament without a completed entry form and at least a $100 deposit.  We do accept credit cards for payment.  NO EXCEPTIONS!
    • $25 discount to all first time NFCA Members.  Please click here to download membership form.  Membership form MUST be mailed to Fastpitch Showdowns with your entry form for discount to apply.  Discount will be applied to one tournament during the 2014 season.
  • Mountaineer Showdown Rules - These are the tentative rules for the tournament.  The final copy of the rules will be in the coach's packet that must be picked up at headquarters before the tournament begins.
  • This is an ASA Tournament.  If you do not already have it, ASA Registration is available on site for $30 and is good for all of your ASA tournaments for the rest of the 2014 season.  It is a simple process and takes about 3 minutes.
  • Recruiting Tools
  • CaptainU is a service designed to help players and teams maximize their exposure to college coaches.   Participating with CaptainU is not a requirement of the tournament, but those that choose to will be included in the player profile book they will create and send to college coaches.   They also offer some premium paid features that you have the choice to opt-into if you are looking for additional help through the recruiting process.  But no one is under any obligation to do so and you have the choice to stick with the free tools for as long as you like.


  • Paramount College Showcase -  Paramount Scouting Bureau began holding showcases in 1997 to offer student-athletes a better understanding of the recruiting process and additional exposure to college coaches. Each event offers professional instruction and evaluations by current and former college coaches, along with informative sessions on the college recruiting process. We evaluate each athlete for running speed, fielding, throwing, pitching, catching, batting.  After the showcase, each player receives a written evaluation of her performance.  Paramount Scouting Bureau then makes the showcase evaluations available to every college softball coach across the country.  For more information, please contact Paramount directly at 724-514-6797 or rvrana@paramountscouting.com. 
  • A PARKING CHARGE WILL BE COLLECTED AT THE FIELDS.  $5/car for a day pass or $12/car for a weekend pass.
  • At Fastpitch Showdowns, we believe in the safety of all players comes first.  All of our tournament staff is certified in the CDC Concussion Training Course.  Because we realize many coaches would like to be more knowledgable about the developments in this area, we are happy to provide a link to the FREE CDC Heads Up Online Concussion Training Course.  Hopefully you will find this beneficial and we encourage all those involved with fastpitch softball to use this valuable resource.
  • Teams Registered - Team lists will be updated on or about the 1st and 15th of the month through June 1st.
  • If the tournament sells out as it did in 2013, all schedules and pools will be emailed to the coaches at least 30 days before the tournament.  If you believe you are registered for the tournament and you have not received the schedule by then, please let us know.
