Discussion: TOC Qualifying Is A Joke!

I just want everyone to know, that the 55AA Team entered in the Spring Nationals in Polk County NEVER said that we had an automatic bid to the TOC.. We were told up front that since we were the only 55AA team that we would play up against the 60AAA since they only had three teams.

We did not mind that. As information and for the record, our "55" team has 2-61 year old, 2-60 year old, 2-59 year old, 3-58 year old and 2-56 year old. The two 59s will be 60 this year....

So when you check to see who is going to the TOS from the Spring Nationals, we didn't get the bid, because we lost to a team that the Senior Moments beat!!!

In fact we were told that this team had received an automatic bid after beating the remaining 60AAA team, since Senior Moments left the tournament, and we had to beat them in order to get a bid.... So Senior Moment lost out on an opportunity to get a bid had they stayed...

Our team should be upset because we had to play up a division... How many home runs were hit by the 60s team.. I can tell you this more then we did... We didn't hit any... In fact we may have had one ball off the bottom of the fence and that's it... We should be complaining because we are a ligitimate 55AA team and since there were no other 55AA teams, we should have got the TOC invite and acted as a fourth team in the 60AAA for competition..

But we didn't get the invite and we didn't win, but we stayed and played all our games. The SSUSA made their decision and we have to accept it.

Sometimes you just have to take the field and play ball...
