Discussion: 60 Major Division
I don't understand some of jyoji comments. I am #14 on the KC Kids team, and yes we do have a good team, as does Master Collision. The fact that we had 3 players (I was one of them) that had a flight out at 5:30 and MC had their flight at 7 PM had NOTHING to do with them winning it. We played them 3 times and they won 2 of them, they are the Champs and we congratulate them.
We had a good tournemant, and yes we DO have guys that if they get it in the air can take it out...I THOUGHT thats why they limited the HR to 5 and made them outs instead of walks in the 60 Major., because people at that level DO hit Home Runs.
We have NEVER been classified as Major+ and routinely get handled by teams that are triple AAA at home. We are the ONLY 60 Major team in our Region and of course we will be looking for good players as we have no competition for these players. We also have a VERY YOUNG (as is MC) 60 team with most of our players being 59 and have come from good 55 teams (but NOT Major Plus teams). That was (1) ONE tournament, lets see how we fare down the road before the "They are to good to be in our divison" starts."
We have heard that same tune in EVERY division when someone gets beat a couple of times (and I myself have been heard to say it).
We (KC Kids) went to Minn this last weekend and played some of the same teams we handled pretty good in Reno...We won 1 game out of 5... Should we demand that the Minn Masters team be moved up? I don't think so, as they just played better than we did that weekend. THAT is why we play the game and not just mail in the results. In Major you are SUPPOSED to be good enough to compete and if you feel your not, then petition to be moved down and listen to the AAA guys start complaining YOUR to good to be in AAA.
NOBODY wants to play Major plus and be handed a Trophy for showing up and playing 'exhibition' games. And we are not a major plus team...we just happen to have a bunch of good players turning 60 at the same time from different teams and it came together at one tournament and fell apart at another. Check and see if we have IMPORTED any players from long distances. I think at the end of the year, you will find us with some wins and some quick exits as it should be if you have a good team.
Thank you for listening.
