Houston Tournament-07
Hey guys. For those of you that like to get a start on deciding where to play next year, this is for you.
Harris County Senior Softball League, Houston, Tx, for the past 3 years has had a tournament the last weekend of Feb. Usually get ten teams and play four games in one day. Can make it a two day tournament if we get more teams interested. Fee is pretty cheap and we supply umps and balls. PLUS two of the best infields you will play on any place in 07. For more info contact me. We usually have two brakcets with a winner in each bracket. Just depends who and how many play. Its a great time and we try to make it as fair as possible. Plus, Ladies aux sells food and drinks, so you don\'t even have to leave the park. What a deal. This probably won\'t interest many of you but mostly texas and La teams that like to get an early start and a good warm up for the season.. Happy Holidays to all

With only two brackets,does that meam a AA team would or couldend up playing a major team of any age? ie: the possibility of say a 50's Major, AAA or even AA playing a 60's or older of one of those rankings?
As for weather, your correct, I lived in Pasadena for 3 years which I hear puts senior tourneys on also.

GT,

Any chance of a guy whose team doesn't start until April picking up with someone for this one? Keep me in mind if someone needs a player to make up a team.

Taits, it really depends on who plays. In the past, we have 50 AA play and they might play a 60's Major or Plus. We try to keep it as fair as possible, ie runs or something. We have 50 and 55 AA and AAA play and they have done well against Major or Plus teams. I try to keep one bracket for AA along with 60 and 65 teams, then let the bigger/stronger teams play in the other bracket. You can always check with me and see who is playing and if you would like that competition. We don't run this for anyone to get humiliated. Its a fun tournament and gets guys out early who want to start early.
Team Houston, Right/On Potbellys, Hendricks Sports, now with a Different name, Willie's Wolves, Texas Pride, Christian Bros Auto, Wildcatters, Texas Classics, Ron Lagneaux's ISP, Mixed Breed, A local league team. Those are just off the top of my head. I try to keep AA away from the stronger teams. I will say, in the past some AA teams have asked to play with the stronger teams and have won it. Just check with me and I will let you know who is in.
TT-Best I can do is ask and see if someone needs a player. Not unheard of for someone to need someone, but wouldn't want you to travel here not knowing for sure. I do make rules for tournament that limits home runs and anything else that makes it fair. Just check with me when I announce the actual date. You will have a good time and very rarely never get at least 10 teams that want to play.
Hope I have answered your question.

GT:
Thank you for the reply. I posted because of the 2 bracket thing. You answered my concerns and I'm sure others could use that info you provided as well.
