LP, Texas Makules won the 60 Major; Texas Classics won the 55 AAA. I'm pretty sure Lonestars won the 50s but I did not see the end of their Championship game.

Teams that won the Winners Bracket finals on Sunday morning found out that there would be no "if" game if the Losers Bracket champion beat them in the Championship game scheduled for 1:20 Sunday afternoon. That was done due to league committments at 3PM Sunday. Luckily, I don't think that came into play - it did not affect the Makules team.

LP, We played a 6-team division consisting of 4-60 teams - 1 Major (Makules) and 3-AAA (Dallas Spurs, Team 454 and the Sultans) as well as 2-55 AAA teams (Dallas Spurs 55s and Texas Classics). I think the 60 AAA was "won" by the Dallas Spurs 60s since, I think, they were the highest finishing 60AAA team. Double L 10

The 65 and 70 divisions had only 3 teams. After playing each other several times, the Greyhounds 70 AAA finished 1st. The Texas Classics 70 AA finish 2nd and the Greyhounds 65 AA finished 3rd. Therefore the 70 AAA Greyhounds won the 70 AAA Prize. The Texas Classics won the 70 AA Prize and the 65 AA Greyhounds won the 65AA prize. It was like the Special Olympics. Everyone got a prize.

Thanks for the info guys, that is the main reason that my 60aaa team didnt go there , i dont like to spend our money and play against major teams.my thinking is you dont put a major team in its own age bracket, thats why there are seperate divisions.

LP, That was the problem in the 50s, 55s and 60s. There was only one Major-rated team in each of those divisions. In the 50s it was Lonestar, in the 55s Texas Legends and in the 60s Texas Makules.
Keith put Makules with the younger guys (55s) even-up and the 60AAAs and we spotted the 5 runs.
I don't see that as a reason NOT to attend a tournament unless a team is simply afraid of playing an older one-level higher rated team. That does not make sense to me. When I played Major, we played against M+ quite frequently and took our 5 runs and tried to win. Occassionally, we did but usually thanks to the 5 runs. We never declined to play anyone higher-rated or not. I like to think it helped us when we did play very good teams in our own age bracket and our skill level. JMO.
