2014 Nationals: Another Rarity
Coupled with the rare â€œall 3 frozen ballsâ€ phenomenon which occurred at the 2014 Nationals in Houston, TX was another rare event: a new USBA Nationals record for best game.
In 2006, Mazin Shooni played a 35 point match in 9 innings for a 3.889 average. It was the Nationals Record for best game. In the same game, he had a high run of 18 which still holds till this day as the high run for a USBA Nationals.
On Saturday, April 12th, 2014 Pedro Piedrabuena etched his name once again into the USBA record books by playing a world-class 40 points in just 8 innings for a 5.000 average. Ironically, his opponent was none-other than Mazin Shooni. Pedro joins a very exclusive club of world-class players who have achieved a 5.000 average in a match lasting longer than the 15-point sets that have been predominant around the world for so many years.
Congratulations to Pedro once again for achieving such a monumental milestone!
