Is the TOC a true TOCs ???
What the SSUSA has done to inspire teams to pursue the ultimate win in the TOC is commendable. However, is it a true TOC? I understand the $$$ issues for these organizations, but why cannot they be put aside &possibly share a piece of the pie by allowing the other(such as ISF,ISSA,LVSSA, ASA, USSSA.ASA, NSA, etc) to participate. Then we truly have a champion.Over tha past few years, rings were throw out to winners of small bracket tournaments. This eventually took the flavor out of winning.However, it would be MUCH more meaningful to have a champ of real CHAMPIONS !!

Probably won't happen. Or, the question of the 1 champion overall won't get answered. The only way that could happen is if all assoc. used the same balls, same bats, and played the exact rules. Someone would always pose an arguement that something was different in the tourney that kept them from winning.

The only way I see is happening, if ever, is for one of them to gather all the national winners info from the other assn's and put on a seperate tournament. Biggest problem I see there is that they do not share rosters, so needless to say, there would be few teams with the same winning rostered players. Kinda like it is anyway, with few exceptions.
They all don't use same balls but that is not too bad a deal, the bats are going to be a big problem as are the rules.
So unless there becomes a National Assn of Senior Tournament Champions that only deals with the championship tournamment events, pitting those only types of teams together, it isn't going to happen.
Assn's seem to have a phoebia about their loosing something. They do not like to share their info. Especially rostters.
