Bobby, never mind. The KC area Major team, I was going to recommend to you, was recently re-rated down to AAA also.

Jim, based on your posting (below), which you updated this morning, you are trying to put together a AAA team. ???

Bobby, if you're truly seeking a Major team (in the KC area), let me know. clintberger@hotmail.com

Gideon60, as taits states, I'd prefer to go local also, but since money talks, this company out of Kentucky beat any price I was able to come up with locally (here in the KC area anyway).

Don't really decide what you think they can do for you based on the product you see on-line (for shirts, hats, etc.) for any softball attire. The site does not do them justice in that respect. You need to call Nathan Randall 800.693.3299 (Ext. 306), or e-mail him nathanrandall@centralscreenprinting.net to find out what they have to offer.

Discussion: 60s scores in Phoenix

Mark, please, no apology necessary. Maybe I'm the one who should be apologizing if I've been giving everyone the impression that I was upset about statements made on this thread. I didn't take yours, or anyone else's comments/remarks as being critical of our decision to appeal. I've simply been trying to explain why we made our decision. See ya around.

Discussion: 60s scores in Phoenix

Gentlemen, sorry (once again) for not planning on being part of SSUSA's 2013 list of 60 Major+ teams. We (the KC Kids) did OK in 2011 when we were moved up to Major+, and had no intentions of ever moving back down. We were proud to be there, and welcomed the competition. Here in the KC area, we regularly played against the 50+ KC Barons in local tournaments (when they were rated Major, and even Major+ for 1 year). We also played other regional 50, and 55 Major teams in those tournaments -- simply because there are no 60 Major, or Major+ teams within hundreds of miles of the KC area.....and we enjoyed the challenge of playing them !!!

However, we lost 7 of our 2011 roster players in 2012......for various reasons. 3 of them moved up to the area's first 65 Major team, 3 were lost to career-ending injuries, and 1 moved down to play in (what he felt is) a more competitive 55 Major division.

No, we didn't breeze through things in 2011 -- but we did play .546 ball that year against other Major+ teams. That figure dropped to a disappointing .363 winning percentage in 2012. That was NOT, however, why we decided to appeal to move down to Major (which, by the way, has not YET been approved by SSUSA). The main reason we appealed is because, even though we were competitive in 2011 (basically playing .500 ball), our average per game run differential for 2011 was +1.97. For all our Major+ games in 2012, we had a -6.7 per game run differential. That's a difference of almost 9 runs per game.

So, we wait for SSUSA'a decision. Hope to see you guys around some tournaments in 2013 !!!!

Discussion: How many active 60 Major Plus teams for 2013?

After getting drummed for an "average" loss margin of 14 runs per game at the World Masters in Las Vegas, the KC Kids have appealed to be re-classified as a Major team. If that doesn't pan out, we will either disban -- since it's obvious we're not a Major+ team either, or be forced to only play SPA tournaments (where we are properly rated - as a Major team....on a good day).

John states (above) they're not even a good "mid-range" Major+ team. Well, if that's the case, what does that make us?.......since they (Master Collision) were one of the teams that beat us in Vegas. We're not even a good "low-class" Major+ team.

And the problem we have with breaking-up is that individually we have no place to go in the Midwest / Kansas City area to hook up with another Major+, or even Major, team. They're just not any around. We all love playing together, but we're simply no match for the Major+ teams out there right now. We're wasting what little time some of us may have left to play softball, and throwing our money away flying around the country, trying to compete with the likes of Hollis, Turn Two, Mobley, GSF (or MTC....if that's what they will be in 2013), etc.

Sorry, fellas. Gonna have to find someone else to use for your tournament "practice" games.

Discussion: Rock in Reno 60s

I was told, by the mananger of KC Renegades, that they got double-dipped by Enviro-Vac. Reportedly, the Renegades were leading the first game by 6, but Enviro-Vac came from behind (late) to beat them, and then they lost the 2nd game by 8, or so.

Discussion: 60+ Team Looking for Players

The KC Kids 60’s Major+ team had two players turn 65 in 2012. They’ve decided to play in the 65 year-old age group this year. Also had 2 others retire (the end of the 2011 season) due to health issues/problems. So, looking for some replacements going forward. We are a tournament team – we do travel…….and do pay for our own expenses in the process. Played in 12 tournaments in 2011 (ranging from locally in the Kansas City area, to driving to MN; IA; OK; TX; CO;…..to flying to Reno; Phoenix; Dalton, GA; etc.). If interested, please contact clintberger@hotmail.com or call my cell @ 913.481.7937.

Discussion: TOC 2012

JohnBob, the KC Kids had a team meeting when we returned from the Worlds (in Phoenix). At that time we agreed we were going. I made my plane reservations, and was on the verge of signing a room contract, when things started to fall apart -- players backing out. Bottom-line, we will not be there.

60’s Major+, Kansas-based, team (KC Kids) have two 65 year old players who have made it known they are moving up to play 65 in 2012, and have 2 more players who retired (due to health issues/problems) after the recent 2011 Worlds in Phoenix. So, we are looking for replacements for the 2012 season. If interested, please contact me at clint.berger@dexone.com or call my cell @ 913.481.7937.

JLD930, I guess I'll have to take some of the blame for you getting moved up.....since I did mention your team's name in my July 24th message above. However, doing as well as Master Collision has done over the past 2 years, it makes more sense you being there than the KC Kids being rated Major+. Guess we my be seeing you again then, going forward.......if we stay together after this season, and continue to play SSUSA tournaments.

JonnBob, we play the SPA Eisenhower Mid-American Natinals this coming weekend.....which is when we plan to discuss the future of the KC Kids (short-term, and also long-term). The St. Louis tournament was on our 2011 tournament schedule, but the news of us being bumped to Major+ has sent shockwaves through our team --- to the extent that this coming weekend's tournament may be out last.

Hey Brock, if you, or anyone you talk to, ever figure it out (i.e., why / how the Kids were, justifiably, moved up), please let all of us know. Other than Al33 (who posted above), and those who oviously made this decision, I have yet to find anyone who has the answer.

You are correct bbullett (unless I'm missing something). If you look at the 5 teams -- on http://seniorsoftball.com/wc/wc2011/TOC-Invites-2012.pdf -- that have already qualified for the 2012 TOC (other than your KC Kids team)........

Double LL Roofing (FL) • [SNC]
Master Collision (CO) • [SWC]
Northern Virginia Force • [WNC]
Robson.com (AZ) • [SW]
SGC Runner Blue (UT) • [WWC]

......I don't see any of them already listed as Major+, or having been bumped up to Major+ as a result of this recent rerating update.
