50 Major+ in no particular order:
Demolition
Arizona Elite
ENR
Northwest Legends
GSC = Gods Sports Company
I think these teams will be elite teams.
Now if I have left someone off, let the games begin. Hope
everyone has a great successful year.

It is my understanding that Summy is no longer sponsoring a 50 Major + team. This has alway been a close bunch of friends / players and some decided to move up to the next level and others to retire. I am not sure how many but some moved to the Demolition team which won in Menifee.

Good to see the FV Outlaws getting the Love and Respect they deserve from the Senior Board. During the Re-Ratings they were the one team I was surprised that didn't get moved up. FV Outlaws have been the dominate 60AAA team in the Western States for the past several seasons. Great Bunch of guys and even better support group. A team that will make a run for the TOC this year.

I will put my money on Turn 2 or I think they will be called Superior softball this year in the 60 major +. East coast bias. Thanks Harry

Mike I am playing, 3rd probably so, since Alvin Tate won't be there. This will be my 1st Tourney this year, ever since you hit that seed at me and my hand will never be the same, I really don't like playing Hemet during the Winter months but it should be in the upper 70s this weekend. Remember, it was 8 in the morning and it was 34 degrees outside and you hit a 1 hopper. I was deep at third, I caught the ball(no feeling) then this PAIN shoots thru my left hand and I can't even throw the ball, hell I couldn't even hold on to the ball in my other hand because the pain was that bad.
............But I too can't wait. Love playing against You, but I rather play with you. See ya this Saturday Mike. How is Nolan doing? Tell him I ask about him. Love that kid.

canljack,
Bingo Long and the Travelling All-Stars.....was made partially in Macon, Ga.

One of the Florida Classics (50+) players, Joe Hicks, was in the movie, he lived in Macon at the time and played catcher in the movie along side Richard Pryor, Billy Dee, James Earl Jones, and more.

And who played "Rainbow"? Otis Day, of Otis Day & the Knights....yes, Animal House, that Otis Day...

Have a good Friday....

Webbie......I guess I am the only guy on this board "blessed" to have seen Mike struting around the softball complex in his spandex.

If I remember correctly....Lord knows I have been trying to forget it for 33+ years.

They were shorts with a onesy style tank top in......wait.....wait....LEOPARD PRINT.

I don't know if Mike has done like many of us and "put on a few" Since 1991 but...if he has....I am sure that "outfit" would look more like a onesy tank top with a gee string bottom if he put them on now......

It hurts my eyes just thinking about it!!!
