The 55 Platinum Division provided an interesting mix of teams competing for the Southwest Championship crown. Two 55/Major teams (SoCal 55s and R-n-R/Double Nickels) plus my team, Greco Hitmen, a 55/Major Plus my OTHER team, GSF 60 Major Plus....all were pitted against each other in a 4 team scramble.

SoCal 55s earned the #1 seed with an undefeated 3-game Round Robin slate; R-n-R grabbed the 2 seed...Hitmen took the 3 seed and GSF 4 with an 0-3 record.

Bracket play was a different story. GSF upended SoCal 55s while R-n-R beat Greco in the first round. R-n-R then beat GSF on Saturday at 5pm and earned a berth in the finals.

A 930am Sunday game saw Greco eliminate SoCal 55s...then Greco took out GSF with a 1-run victory to earn the championship round.

R-n-R then pasted Greco 27-6 in the final game...22-6 if you disallow the 5 runs they were spotted.

One weekend does not always indicate the true strength of a team...and many teams are better than what they seem to be on any given weekend. We understand all that.

Nevertheless, it would be hard to find a better all around squad than the Bullhead City version of R-n-R/Double Nickels. They made innumerable circus catches and most of the routine plays on defense; hit consistently throughout the lineup and with considerable power; their pitcher, Rob Grimm, moved the ball effectively around the plate; and their shortstop is arguably the best all around senior ballplayer in the country.

Congratulations to this fine team for putting on as good a show as we'll see all year.

DD-best all around senior softball player in the country? pretty strong statement considering we've been talking about Ron Parnell and Rick Perez as 2 of the few that fit that description.Who is the shortstop on R&R you're talking about? If he is what you described then it won't take long for those who've seen him play to chime in on what they think!
