Any other results from B'ham?
I received a call from RT of the 55 Kayson's Grille today. He told me that they had won their division. I am thinking the division is 55 Gold. Congrats guys!
Does anyone know the results of the 50's?

Bruce I watched Randy Smith in the 50 major+ put a hurting on Motown Friday. Randy Smith is a HR hitting machine with a great defense. This team will really be hard to beat. The 50AAA Kayson's lost there first game of the elimination game to Memphis and put them in the losers bracket. The TD played as many games as he could on Friday to skip the Sat. rain and finish the tourneyment on Sunday morning. They had a lot of good Major teams out in Birmingham this weekend.

Greetings Bruce,

What a great looking complex. It is a pity more teams didnot schedule this tournament. I believe if SSUSA continues to use this facility it will draw more teams. BTW,
Matator Club won the 60 division.

the fields where great. Terry and his staff did a greatjob getting most of the teams out before the storm came. Bad that the 50's drew the short straw and had to come back sunday.
hope more team come next year they will not be disappointed

Bruce, I play for Motown (I was in left center) and I have to tell you we got our a**** handed to us by Randy Smith. Not that it would have mattered but our psyche wasn't the best going in since we lost the first two "play in" games. The one black guy on RS who was a lefty is Mighty Joe Young's brother. I think all his 20 or so at bats against us were dingers!! I'm talking wayyyyyyyyyyyyy over the fence. I've played A, B and C, competed against major teams and Friday night that team demonstrated as much power as any team I've played against. I definitely got a workout running around in the outfield!!

I'll bet the Lefty you are referring to is Doc who usually plays first base. He can hit 'em with anyone in the Senior program! I'v had the pleasure of playing with and against Doc for a few years and you know he's hit one when you hear that yell!

Stick8, We played Randy Smith a couple of years ago in Marietta and were really impressed by the offense of RS. They must be awsome if they improved any at all! As for Mighty Joe Young's brother, I'm sure it's in the genes!

Congrats to Kayson's 55, 50, RS, the Matador Club and other winners!
I see that the results have been posted on the home page.

I think Joe Young little brother played Third base. He hit them pretty well himself. The lefty was Doc, But to tell the truth. You could not tell who was who. They all hit well this weekend. Hope this tournment get more teams next year. It was a good complex. I think the lead off batter got out one time.

Bruce, this is my first year in the 50's so I'm not familiar with most of these teams. I have to believe that many of these fellas played A, AA or major back in the day they way they hit.

Most of the guys on Randy Smith Team were A player s form different parts of texas and Louisiana. They got together by word of mouth. Joe Young plays a little. Big Mike did not show up this weekend.

Gary19, big Mike couldn't make it to Birmingham. Not that the final outcome would have been different but it would have been interesting to compare the potential distance of his hr's as to the RS players.

Bruce, Cutty and Mad Dog, as I stated earlier this is my rookie year in this so I didn't know these guys. Now I do!! I was talking to the RS guys after the game. Nice bunch of guys who were actually very complementry of me!! Don't know why, maybe they felt sorry for me? From what I understand they only play 3 or so tournaments in this? I have to say at least they didn't hit the middle when they were running up the score on us.

I want to echo airbosn's comments about this softball complex. It's a great complex with the best infields I can remember ever playing on. The Tournament was very well run considering the schedule juggling that occurred to avoid the approaching storm front. Hats off to Terry and all for a great weekend of softball! First place teams got Miken bat bag backpacks and an invite to the TOC. I thought the new microcell balls hit pretty good and seemed to hold up well over time since there was no shortage of home runs on the 300' fences. The home run hitters also liked the fact that the runners moved up if a home run was hit as a single, even if it was not a "force". Terry said he plans on holding it a different weekend next year to avoid conflicting with other regional tournaments. Hopefully this will bring more teams and grow the tournament. It was just a lot of fun at a great softball complex!

Gentlemen, I was one of the umpires on friday and saturday. I must admit I was in awe of the calibur of play by all the teams. All the games I saw and umpired showed that no matter what age group was playing each individual on each team always gave 100% no matter what. I hope in the future if this association plays in birmingham that our umpiring team gets the pleasure of calling your games. All the players were helpful and courteous reguardless of the calls. Even when calls were questioned it was still done in a professional manner. Good luck to all the teams in the future and hope to see them in the future.,

Our Ohio Silverado 55 team played in Birmingham last week. Found out a few things 1. Its colder in the South then you would think. 2. Not playing since Nov in Ft Myers was not a good idea. 3. The people in Alabama are really great and the tournament despite the low turn out was really well done. Congrats to the Birmingham 55s a real class act! Terry McClaskey Ohio Silverados.
