Discussion: CHICAGO CLASSICS BOBCATS PITCHER PASSES

I know this is an old pot but I recently learned about the passing of Jimmy Brummund. I was a teammate of Jimmy's over 10 years ago. He pitched for our team. He was truly a warrior on the mound. So sad.

We are very sorry to hear of your father's passing. We wish you strength during this very tough time. I know how you feel having lost my father who was my biggest fan.

Discussion: WHO IS THE FAVORITE AT 50 MAJOR WINTER NAT

Dirty,
I think we took up enough of this thread with our back and forth. My email address is rschulz511@aol.com. We can exchange cell phone numbers and discuss anything you would like to discuss. I will try to answer any questions you have. I hope to have the answers that truly provide you with the answers you are after. You can tell me what you mean by kool-aid. Better yet, you are from Ohio. Come to the Brickyard Invitational and we can meet in person if it is worth the drive to you.

Discussion: WHO IS THE FAVORITE AT 50 MAJOR WINTER NAT

Dirty, Why do you keep asking the silly question about the word Nationals? It is true that our team (new team Black & Blue) does not "need" to play in a qualifier before going to a National. We are playing in the highest division. We are not trying to play below where we should play. If you believe we don't deserve to play in Major Plus then that would be your uninformed opinion of our new team. Continuing to ask why we don't need to qualify for a National or what makes it a National would be as silly as asking--Did you qualify under the name "Just Messy" before you took the name "Dirty."

Don,
We look forward to seeing you in Vegas and Phoenix. Our team is comprised of former players from Travelodge, Windy City and Geckle. Mostly former Travelodge players.

I guess no one else on a 55 Major Plus team cares enough about competition at this level to cooperate and post their schedule.

Discussion: Post major plus tournament schedules

Jawood,
We realize at the MP level that there are a limited number of teams available for each tournament. That is one reason that most of our tournaments are Nationals/Worlds. It is our hope that we will have the opportunity to measure our strength as a team against other MP teams. The purpose of my original post was to encourage other MP teams to post their schedules likewise so we can all see which teams are going where. Personally I would like to see Major and Major Plus combine. Time will tell what the Associations decide in that regard.

Dirty,
We regard to your post I have been on the message board long enought to know that you know the answer to your own question. Why don't you write what is really on your mind.

Discussion: Post major plus tournament schedules

We are a new team in the midwest called Black & Blue. We will be playing 55 Major Plus. Please post your schedule here so we can all determine how well represented Major Plus will be especially for the Nationals. Here are the tournaments we plan to attend:

5/1,2--Brickyard Invitational (Indianapolis)

7/16,17,18--SPA National (Dalton)

7/30,31,8/1--ISA World (Gallatin)

8/6,7,8--SSUSA Eastern Campionships (Raleigh)

8/27, 28, 29--LVSSA National (Vegas)

10/22, 23, 24--SSUSA World (Phoenix)

We are considering attending another tournament in June to which we can drive with Indiana as a center point. Any suggestions?

Has there been any interest from 55 Major or Major Plus teams?

Discussion: Tournament winnings......????????

I wasn't asking about 2005. I was asking whether there were 3 teams in the bracket this year. Receiving a 2nd place prize (award) when there are 16 teams is more important than a 2nd place finish when there are only 3 teams. It also would make sense to provide more in terms of awards if an association receives tournament fees from 16 teams compared to only 3.

elpbadboys,
This will be my last post since I think we have walked around this dead horse and are now just kicking it. I don't know for sure--you do, whether there were more than 3 teams in the bracket where prizes were given out to your team previous to your last tournament? My point is why would you want a prize/award for finishing 2nd in a 3 team bracket? Was the Gold Glove a three team bracket for you?

elpbadboys,
Maybe I don't have all the facts and I am wrong. My question is "Did you start this thread because there were no awards for your second place finish in a three team bracket?"

Mad Dog, I have spent the last two winters in Texas. Last year in the Houston winter league we only had one night cancelled due to rain or cold weather. This year we've had more than half our games cancelled due to rain or cold. What's going on?

Congratulations to Team Canada and a great Gold medal game, especially to the Blackhawk players Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook. Also to Patrick Kane and Brian Rafalski (I wish he was a Blackhawk).

Gary, specifically to your wins--congratulations. I believe team chemistry is an important ingredient to win titles consistently.
As to your opinion on why the Chicago Classics broke up I disagree. As a former member I have first hand knowledge of the reasons this occurred. It was not because players were drawn by other teams. It was because they were driven away by the politics and favored players who coached teams and made poor decisions. Those coaches were allowed to take players to the detriment of other teams in the orgainization. But the main reason they were driven away was how sponsor fees brought in by players from one team were required to share with all six teams. Do I regret the years I played with the Chicago Classics--definitely not.
Did it ever dawn on you that teams are not drawn to win rings but have a strong desire and principal goal to win National Championships. You make it sound like a bad thing. My teammates and I also believe in playing the best competition in the country. We play at a high level and welcome competition from any 55's team in the country. We have played Major Plus for three years and would not consider playing down to win a ring or a National Championship when we feel we need to play Major Plus. Does that make me a "ring whore?" You tell me.

I'm not going to debate the difference between local tournaments with volunteers and possibly volunteer umpires compared to SSUSA tournaments. All I can tell you is that in my mind, having played both over the past 12 years, there's a big difference in favor of SSUSA. The best part of being in the USA is that you have choices. There are other associations and you also you have your local tournaments. You make the choice. But if you are going into the SSUSA "store" ask about the merchandise before you buy it. If second place medals are important and they don't offer them take your business elsewhere. They decisde on the product and you have the choice to spend your money on SSUSA or take it elsewhere. There's a reason why their tournaments are normally the largest.
