40 Majoe
1. JK Ca
2. Courtesy Ca
3. Tacoma Dodge Wa

40 AAA
1. Allstar Ford Wa
2. Rawlins Cs
3. High Street Bucks Md

Jk went undefeated and breezed through upper bracket.
Allstar Ford lost their first game and battled through the losers to meet Rawlins, becoming triple grand slam winners.

The weather was good, and the balls were flying. Umpiring wasn't the best, yet consistant. Fields at desert breeze were OK. All in all, SSUSA ran a very good event. Thanks SSUSA.

Any results from the 60 AAA Divison, good teams involved. Heard a rumor that a team was thrown out of tournament on Sunday for starting a fight - anyone have word on that?

HOT?? the weather was great, to bad we didn't play like the weather. Got back to Florida Monday night just in time for a 6:30 league game and almost died from the heat (humidity) But back to Phoenix, Umps were very good, yet very inconsistent. We played at Desert West, feilds were keep in very good shape, for day games, crew must have went home for night games because feilds were never draged again, anyway that didn't matter because you could not see the ball because of the lighting. Both teams had balls go by infeilders head that never saw the ball.
Our team the Suncoast Sunrays 60 Major finished 3 and 3, lost 2 games bottom of last inning and 1 game top of last inning and could not come back. It was all about who had the final ab, lots of offense and ZERO defense. All in all is was a fairly well run tournament. We were told upon arriving at the feilds to make sure to watch out for everyone and check your cars every once in a while. It even looked like a bad area to live in, I wonder why we have to play in areas like that?
Just another note, I got to watch some very good 40 ball with many, many ball flying well over 400 feet. Some "D" but with 40 year olds using the U2 their was not to much "D" at all.

50 AAA ...have not heard the full story yet as I was unable to go but I understand one of the Texas teams won 50 AAA and our team, Enviro-Vac lost a close game to them in the finals. I am also told that 50 AAA had a lot of really good teams and that prolley' with a few breaks, any of them could have been in the finals. Sounds to me like SSUSA did a good job in putting a very strong division of 29 teams together.

I would add that all the feedback from my guys who played in Phoenix has been positive and all had a great time.

the umpiring @cesaer chavez (55aaa) was very good as was the competition. I personally witnessed 7 xtra inning games, with at least 3 of these going to more than one xtra. K.C. Blues won it, but Bombers, Murphy's Law, Indiana Legends,Las Vegas Heat, Old Dawgs were all in the hunt, with most games decided late and by small margins. Great job by SSUSA, STAFF, and ground crews all around, including nite games! Loser 's bracket sucks but spectating is worse!

Fields were very nice. Parks and Rec folks did an excellent job of keeping fields and facilities clean. Kodos to them for their efforts.

Tournament was run very well so kudos to the directors and UIC's. Games were close to starting on time every day which is always one of my concerns.

Umpires were good so kudos to them as well and thanks to them for taking so much grief and still being professionals. You know all senior softball players are experts on the rules and on seeing the correct call that should have been made :)

No horror stories here! Only little problem I saw was running out of balls and waiting for score boards to be updated. One day we had to pay a kid $1.00 per ball he retrived for us which saved us lots of time and energy. Maybe we can add ball shaggers in the future???? lol
