The 1990s produced other storied teams, as well. Shippensburg and Cranston Western both parlayed Eastern Region championships into U.S. championships, with Shippensburg using power pitching to blow through the Eastern Region field in 1990, and Cranston Western needing a diving catch by a reserve outfielder to force extra innings before overcoming Franklin, PA in 1996.
The most dominant performances in the Eastern Region Tournament in the 1990s belong to a pair of New Jersey teams. Hamilton Square Nottingham's four victories in 1992 included a pair of no-hitters and a one-hitter, while three years later, Toms River East American's first championship team outscored its five opponents 43-5 to capture the region tournament title.
