Softball4b...Mike, you personally probably hit more home runs in Friday's seeding games than we hit in seven games all weekend in Vegas. Top Gun 60's hit a grand total of three home runs for the tournament. The undefeated winning team, a very solid Minnesota Masters White, hit six home runs against us in our first seeding game alone. Yes, Top Gun 60's had a very good 2013, but we do not have the power throughout our line up to stay with 60 Major Plus teams. However, if you would care to join Top Gun 60 I'll put in a good word for you. LOL

For those of you who graciously asked about Paul Lederman, our stud who was admitted to Desert Breeze Regional Medical Center on Friday night, he was released late Sunday, and is home resting after what now appears to have been dehydration, complicated by his hamstring injury in the first seeding game, along with heart surgery earlier this season. Thank you for your kind thoughts.

Again, congratulations to Minnesota Masters White. Chain Link/Smith Electric, it's always a great game when we meet, and Top Gun 60 hopes to see you soon in Phoenix at the Winter World's.

My prayers will be with Paul. We have lost too many good people this year.

TG 60 has played well all year and regardless of your HRs you are very tough team. Timberworks and Old Dawgs are not what you call power teams, but they are very very tough to beat. Great defense and good hitting put them in a position to win every time.

The 60M+ was as competitive as it gets. Everyone could and did beat up on each other. There will be at least 3 new 60M+ teams next year and the competition will be even tougher.

Crash 1 - good luck with not getting moved up. In 2012 we were a good 60AAA team - not a great one. We did not play in 3 SSUSA events, we did not win by an average of over 5 runs, and we averaged .6 home runs per game. Yes, that means less then one per game. We went to Reno and played in a 22 team 60AAA grouping. We played about as well as we could and finished 5th. They moved us to Major because they looked at how we did at Reno and decided we could compete at that level. They are correct - we can compete at that level, but have zero chance of winning a tournament at that level. By the way, there were teams that finished above us at Reno that remained at AAA. At least at the AAA level the home run rule did not kill us as after 3 they were outs. Now at the Major level they can hit 6 and they are walks. This year in 47 games we hit 14 home runs in 47 games. You do the math! The only SSUSA tournament we played in was Reno in which we finished 5th out of 10 teams in the Major division. We went 2-3 and hit 2 home runs. Yes, we competed and had zero chance of going through any decent sized major tournament and winning it. We were moved because of performance according to SSUSA and were told we were the best 60AAA team in California at the time. What a crock! If they had moved the top 20 teams nationwide then I would agree. The bottom line is unless your team achieves one of their own criteria you should not be moved up just because SSUSA thinks you can compete. How can they justify moving us up because of finishing 5th in one tournament and not move up everyone that finished above us, especially with our lack of power?

We have played in a lot of 60M tournaments this year and have yet to see any team max out on HR`s in fact no team has been close to that number. If a team hits more than 6 in a game they should be outs and not walks and they should also be playing M+ ...IMOP

The 60 Major teams at the Worlds where all very good and fairly evenly matched. Top Gun kicked us really hard otherwise all our games were close. Glad to hear Top Guns man will be OK.
