Team 1 Sports won it. Addictive (C&M) finished 2nd and Team Tennessee ADL was 3rd. I believe Monster was 4th.

Have to say a few things about it...
1. great job by Pete Fowler for managing a fantastic tournament.
2. I think the parity there was significantly impacted in a POSITIVE way by combining major and major plus and adjusting the rules.
The main tournament play was 7 runs per inning, 5 home runs and 1 up rule, and other home runs were walks . You could go 1 up in the 7 th as long as it wasn't a game winner.
There were no additional runs given nor were there any extra defensive players for major teams.
Result? Evening the playing field with those rules kept every game close and most importantly safe for pitchers and fun! I believe we won our 5 games by a total of 8 runs....
I think each association could look at this as a model to possibly combine major and major plus in the future so there would be more teams .
It sure made it great to have 10 good teams to play against and we enjoyed it greatly.

i think by the homeruns for single after the limit was reached, keeps teams from hitting the middle.

Anybody know who one the 55 Major. When we left Crystal Pharmacy had beaten Team Edge in the winners bracket final and Atlanta Recycle was getting ready to play Columbus 55 with the winner to play Team Edge.

The only problem we had was with the scheduling of game times. On Saturday we played three games back to back to back and then sat five innings before playing our fourth game. We were supposed to play another game that night, but they decided it would be to late while waiting on another game to be played and had us come back at 9:00 the next morning.

final Results for all age brackets Mid-South NIT cartersville last weekend

Ed's Aluminum Bldg 70+ played down and won 65+ bracket.

Extreme heat highest finishing 65+ AAA bracket

Edge 60 MP played pool against 60 majors and dropped to 55 major bracket for bracket play.

55 major
Crystal Pharmacy and Edge Softball retired winners of respective brackets
60 MP Edge Softball
60 M TAG 2nd place Ga/Ala Masters
60 AAA Columbus LX 2nd place Strykers Softball
60 AA L&M Builders
55 M Crystal Pharmacy 2nd Atlanta Recycle
50 M/MP Team One 2nd Adiktive Sports
50 AAA Lighthouse Lookouts 2nd place Ram Softball

Teams under the radar you better look out for. Lighthouse Lookouts played AA but are really a strong 50AAA team that will be playing Major next year. Tennessee ADL will be joining the 50MP ranks next year at their current rate and l&M Builders are a strong 60AAA .

During the double elimination rounds when major and major plus were playing they went to:
5 hr and 1 up
Balls over fence after were walks
7 runs per inning
That made it hard for anyone to pull away quickly but allowed hitters to swing away and not too many balls went through the middle in comparison. Overall it made for a very competitive format for all the teams. If major and major plus were to be combined I would say something along the lines of 7 hr and 1 up with balls over fence after that being walks along with 7 runs an inning may be just right. All in all it was a great weekend of fun competition.
Go check your mailbox for a little something I sent you....
