55 Major Plus teams going to TOC
We know Travelodge and Hollis are going, can someone from Ruth Realty and MTC please state whether they are going?
Thanks

That one more than it was last year. Hollis had to play down in the 50 Major + division

Come on guys if you can make it please do! We're tired of beating up on the 50 major plus teams! :) We need a division of our own. Lets hear it from the Animals, Grimes, MTC, and Ruth! If all 6 of us show up it will be an outstanding tournament.

Sorry Guys, Ruth 55's will not be attending TOC this year. Off season surgeries / 3+ month lay off / high travel cost / makes it impossible for us to field a competative team this year. Still think TOC should be in November a few weeks after worlds.

Don, I can assure you it was said "tongue in cheek" and was directed at my own 50s team!

BEAT UP ON 50 MAJOR PLUS TEAMS YOU SAY!

HAVING THE CHOICE(50 VS 55) OF HAVING 11 FIELDERS OR EXTRA RUNS IS REALLY CLOSE TO INSANITY...

This whole Senior Softball program needs to be
overhauled soon.

$675 to play in a Tournament plus travel expenses is hard to take.

Sponsors willing to give $20K to bankroll a team don't exist any more.

I tried to run a 50 Major plus team last year and what was promised by sponsors did not come to fruition.

I learned the hard way...but never again

Mike, I knew Audie would get some replies with his post. We were well aware of the advantage the 11th player gave us.
Hope to see you this comming year.
