hheb, This is just my opinion. I play to win the tourney. Winning is all the reward that I need. i have a closet full of dust collectors. I do have some nice jackets and shirts to wear. The bottom line is winning is the only reward that I need the other things are just bonuses. Thanks Harry

As hot as it was a bottle of water would have been better than a hat

It was a great tournament. The umpires were very good and so was the competition.

Oh jeez not another one. What do you want? Are you jealous you didn't get invited to the White House with the Giants? It's only softball, we play for the great fun of it. Or at least I do.

Mid Atlantic won it. But the best story was the High Street Bucs. They started playing at 8, beat Omega, then a team from NY, then IMS DOGS, then ENR to get to Mid Atlantic.
They did lose to Mid Atlantic but what a great showing.
5 games in a row in 100 degree heat. Good job guys!!!!

i'm with hheb on this one. no question that we all play the game for the competition and the enjoyment of being with friends, of a weekend away from the usual routine. There is a right way and a wrong way to handle tournament recognition though and an off the shelf hat doesn't do it. I would have liked to be able to present our sponsor with a plaque - which I know they would proudly display.

Anyhoooooo - I do appreciate the tourny director taking the time to search us out and personally return a team-mate's glove that was left at one of the fields on Friday. Went out of his way - that's appreciated.

Full results for the 2011 Crabtown Classic were posted at on Monday morning. If you'd like to see who finished where, please take a look.

With respect to awards, the top 2 finishing teams in each of the 9 divisions received a large sponsor plaque. Champions also received a set of flex-fit hats with the logo and tournament champion moniker (Hats are 2x the cost of t-shirts).

For the 60/65/70/75 divisions, we used a drop down bracket format. Winners of the "silver" flight also received sponsor awards. 60% of the the teams playing in session 1 left with a sponsor award of some type.

Thanks to all who played at the 2011 Crabtown Classic. I appreciate your support.

Hey!! I just checked the team picture - and right there in the middle is this huge trophy!! So individually we each got a hat - and collectively the team got a trophy which we will present to our sponsor.

All I can say in my defense is that is was really, really hot. :)

Good Tourny!!
