Only know 60 Major at Papago. Robson won 4 team division. Paradise Chevrolet, Rusty's and NM Dukes were all fighting it out for 2nd when we went for beer.
Maybe someone else can help with the others
As for the ball, 44/375. It seemed to carry fine, but better in morning when ball was new and temps cooler.
The new HR rule didn't come into play in any of our 6 games for either team. The most I saw was 4 for one team in one game.

Mike:
OLR won the 55Major/60 Major Plus divsion against Chicano Cubs, a very good new 55 Major team from Arizona and GSF. We also played 2 50 Major teams and LAF from the 50's. Definitely worth the trip, 6 competitive games against good competition. Great weather and Papago fields were in good shape. Agree with Desert Dave that the balls were just fine. We got nipped twice by the over 5 HR limit, but not that big of deal.

50 Major

1) Tucson Bandits
2) Fangrabbers
3) LAF

Three team round robin on Sunday and I believe every game was decided by 1 run in the 7th or extra innings! Great tournament. Disappointing prizes.

Cash 4 College won the 65AA Championship. It was definitely worth the trip. The Trump Stote 44/375 balls held up well in the heat. We had the privilege of playing the Kokopelli Eye Care team from Arizona 3 times. They won the winner's bracket; thus, we had to win twice in the finals: 14-13, and 17-12 in the championship game. We are from the east coast; and, had a really great time.

Ken: I was on the 65 CFC team. As far as I know, the 60& 65 won't have teams. The 70& 75 should be ok. Frank
