Discussion: 55 Major+ Teams

Posted Discussion

I'm curious, with over 30 55 Major+ teams, why do we see the same 2-4 teams at every tournament, is it the cost, lack of qualified umpires, location, or maybe there really are not 30+ teams? Why even play if we are going to play the same teams time after time? Thanks in advance.

There are not 30 major plus teams. There are a lot of teams listed that have either folded or aged up.
The west coast teams that play regularly are Sommerville, Cornerstone, and Miken from Nor Cal. The East has Team USA, Kellerher, Adidas, and sometimes Phoenix Tube that play regularly. Ohio Elite, and Minnesota come to Vegas for Worlds.

If there are teams missing that play regularly please let me know but I'm thinking there isn't.
Unless teams start wanting to compete at a higher level, I don't see many opportunities for the Major Plus division in 55 or 60.

There may be 30 major plus teams over all age groups but for 50 major it’s really only 4 or 5. We’re a new team this year in the 50 Major but this weekend coming up in MD we are combined with the 55’s (Phoenix Tube and AAA teams). We don’t have to play Phoenix Tube in pool or bracket play but it could be an interesting weekend. This will be the first time we’ve played together as a team.
