In 2011 I played 50 major.

The best team that we played was Tri State Connection from S Carolina. They were a hitting machine at the SPA tournament in Myrtle Beach, scoring 40+ runs in our first meeting. Three of their top players couldn't play on Sunday and we held them to 30 something runs, we were never in the game. Besides hitting most had outstanding speed and fielding skills.

I'm amazed that they have avoided being moved to Major Plus. I did see on the ISSA/ISF website that they won the ISF World Cup in 2011 plus they won the SPA qualifier in Woodstock, Ga. I don't know what else they won.

Bruce we played them in M beach and they only beat us by 6 and we were missing two of our starters, granted I believe that they took it easy on us because we are just a AA team. We end up winning the AAA because there were no other AA teams...I believe that Metro Stars my old team reformed and are stronger than when we won the TOC back in Feb. They both are going to be at the so called ISSA TOC...should be interesting. Heck Tri-city looks more like a football/basketball team...their smallest guy is probably 6' tall and 210 or so...big boys. I was praying for my life at SS everytime that they swong at a ball. LOL. Feliz Navidad Y Prospero A~o Nuevo.

The K. Sheeran team out of Michigan was one of the best teams I saw in AAA all year. Great defence, outstanding speed and hitting thru out the lineup.

Neck 10 , "Expert Car Care" may come & step up in the 55 Major. Best 55 AAA (our opinion) in the nation. Never lost a game. 11-0....SSUSA Winter Nat'l Ft Myers 2011 & Heartland Nat'l Champs Chattanoga 2011 , both 55 AAA.....WE are a team like "Kendrick". Friends that get together a couple of times a year.

I play on a 50 Major team and the best team we played was Smith Laminatig out of Kentucky, those boys could play. of course we got beat twice by Rochester team out of New York in Phoenix. I believe if Smith Laminating went to Phoenix they would have done very well.

The toughest teams we played were the Bay State Bombers in the National Championship game. ODB and Ruth 60's were also very tough.

Thank You:
