Toledo Dave Humphries Tournament
I don't know if I am understanding the format for this weekend in Maumee (Toledo) Ohio. (Dave Humphries Tournament)

SSUSA Tournament, locked roster through SSUSA web-site like normal. But the check could not be paid to SSUSA???

Brackets are on the Michigan USSSA web-site????? Hard to read & understand at least on formats on computers I am using. Nobody on my team seems to be able to figure it out either?

(5) 50 Major Teams, it looks like we are all playing AAA teams on Saturday???? But there are 7 or 8 AAA teams????

(4) game guarantee-------my suggestion would have been to have the 5 majors play a flight against each other, or at least seeding games and then go double elimination?

We're just going to go play ball and not worry about it, but it does seems "odd" ????


Maybe I'm missing something?

It looks like your pool play game for this usual 17-team tournament are two games. The 1, 2,3, etc are probably the bracket game numbers but I can see your problem if you can't find the brackets anyweher.

You usually only find team names and brackets on the SSUSA site for the bigger tournaments 20-25 plus teams and up that are run by the SSUSA office. It is up to the individual tournament directors to list the teams entered and bracket info on the SSUSA site,

Only ISSA lists all their tournament entries and brackets. SPA doesn't list any, they just contact the teams entered with the info a couple of weeks prior to the event.

didnt like the balls when we play ssusa they give you 5 then you can buy as many as you want so always can have fairly new balls at all times if you want a new one thow it in.

The "Tattoo" balls didn't last real long each game.

A couple teams we played were throwing in Trumps but we didn't catch the fact till they went over the fence on us.
