They still don't know that we pay the taxes (fees) and we want something in return. Must be democrats?

Smith Electric was the #1 seed and I never heard anything about them losing on Saturday, but I heard of several other teams losing. Only 7 in our division. R&R was the first one out. We should have never been moved up to Major. No power equals many losses.

60 Major +

1st game
Joe Brown All Stars 29 - Hendricks Sports Management 9

2nd game
Joe Brown All Stars 20 - Hendricks Sports Management 22

3rd game
Joe Brown All Stars 32 - Hendricks Sports Management 15

The weather in Phoenix was outstanding, great move to change venue for the Winter Worlds. Webbie is telling everyone I have a new rabbit to chase, at least he is hoping I will stay off his butt. Ain't gonna happen, but 3A might get some relief because the MVP for our team was Mickey Ayala, a REC player from Eureka. He pitched great, played outstanding defense and can flat out run. There are some great players in all of the divisions. That is evidenced by our losses to Top Gun and Ryans Way and our 2 run win over the OC Mustangs.

Thanks John. Hendricks is a very good team and I fully expect it to be a battle royale throughout the year. Not just with them, but with all of the Major+ teams. This is a great division and you have to bring your "A" game if you want to be successful.

I have played against your team many times, and you are definitely not a AAA team. Your R & R team would run rule most of the AAA teams. Come on Tad, you have Tom, Phil, and Bill who are all superior players in the field and with the bat. Tom would be a huge asset to any Major Plus team. His skills are outstanding. I know you won some tournaments last year, but maybe not SSUSA one's. I will admit, that the 60 Major division in the Vegas Worlds was the strongest field of teams in one division, that I have seen in a long time. Also noted, there were at least 4 60 AAA teams that easily could compete in Major's at the Vegas Worlds. I will be pitching to you on Wednesday Tad, so please do not hurt me, I am very old. LOL!

Goforit,

John, sorry to hear that your team and K C Kids will not be playing this season. To not have you guys, is like a death in the family. You have been around for many years, and it has been a pleasure to meet you and play against you. Though you whooped us most of the time, it was always fun and good competition to play your team. Hope to see you around on another team. Let me know what team you hook up with, so I can look you up.

Take care,

Andy Smith,

Hendricks is a strong competitive team that is accustom to winning and I'm sure they will win many games and tournaments next year. They really hit the ball hard and play hard. We will look forward to the competition with them and the other 60 Major Plus teams. We may not have very many teams in our age division but what we have is extremely competitive and a great group of individuals.
I'm sorry we are losing some teams next year in the 60 Major Plus. I enjoyed playing against very competitive Master Collision, Crystal Pharmacy and Kansas City Kids. Last year with GSF I think we lost more games to this group than we won. Good luck with establishing yourselves with new teams and look forward to seeing you next year at the tournaments.

You are right, Steve-we did lose more than we won overall against 60 M+ teams. I will also miss playing those teams.

Hendricks hit some amazing shots-one hit the left field fence behind me almost before I had a chance to take a step. They will be a force to be reckoned with. One tournament does not a season make!

John-thanks for the good wishes. Hope to see you playing soon!

Gentlemen, sorry (once again) for not planning on being part of SSUSA's 2013 list of 60 Major+ teams. We (the KC Kids) did OK in 2011 when we were moved up to Major+, and had no intentions of ever moving back down. We were proud to be there, and welcomed the competition. Here in the KC area, we regularly played against the 50+ KC Barons in local tournaments (when they were rated Major, and even Major+ for 1 year). We also played other regional 50, and 55 Major teams in those tournaments -- simply because there are no 60 Major, or Major+ teams within hundreds of miles of the KC area.....and we enjoyed the challenge of playing them !!!

However, we lost 7 of our 2011 roster players in 2012......for various reasons. 3 of them moved up to the area's first 65 Major team, 3 were lost to career-ending injuries, and 1 moved down to play in (what he felt is) a more competitive 55 Major division.

No, we didn't breeze through things in 2011 -- but we did play .546 ball that year against other Major+ teams. That figure dropped to a disappointing .363 winning percentage in 2012. That was NOT, however, why we decided to appeal to move down to Major (which, by the way, has not YET been approved by SSUSA). The main reason we appealed is because, even though we were competitive in 2011 (basically playing .500 ball), our average per game run differential for 2011 was +1.97. For all our Major+ games in 2012, we had a -6.7 per game run differential. That's a difference of almost 9 runs per game.

So, we wait for SSUSA'a decision. Hope to see you guys around some tournaments in 2013 !!!!

berger-If I implied in any way that I was questioning your decision, I apologize, as that was not my intention. My point was I enjoy playing very competitive games against you. And, you were all class players. I believe our team will also miss playing you this year.

Mark, please, no apology necessary. Maybe I'm the one who should be apologizing if I've been giving everyone the impression that I was upset about statements made on this thread. I didn't take yours, or anyone else's comments/remarks as being critical of our decision to appeal. I've simply been trying to explain why we made our decision. See ya around.

Clint,

Given our situation, i never took anything you said on these posts to imply that the Kids were giving up, so i personally feel you have no need for an apology. Over the last three years wheather in Major or Major Plus we just kept seeing you guys across the field from us. We never thought we were going to get anything but your best effort everytime. Like us it is what it is, lack of players to give us a larger roster and the fact that guys are hurt are the only things keeping us from still playing as a team next year. All i can say is hang in there, maybe we will see you guys again in 2014 or amybe the 65's which is still a few years away for me. Whenever it is we will battle again.

Clint and John

We definitely understand the reasons your teams will probably not be playing 60 major plus next year and agree with the logic. In no way do I feel like it's a lack of competitiveness that keeps you all from playing at our level next year. In fact quite the opposite I believe that you all are extremely competitive and I admire what you have accomplished the last couple of years. You didn't back down at all. You still need a certain number of people to compete. With the Las Vegas Stars we had a very competitive team but we actually played a couple of tournaments with 9 guys when someone was hurt. I just hope everyone gets healthy and we see all of you on the ball field in the future.
