FACTOR 3: The number of “Super” teams participating

Participating Factor

0 super teams ……………………………………………………………… .9113
1 super teams ……………………………………………………………. 1.0125
2 super teams ……………………………………………………………. 1.1250
3 super teams ……………………………………………………………. 1.2500

NOTE: In calculating Super teams’ scores we will use a factor one level lower than all other teams as they do not compete against themselves. For example, if all three super teams were participating in an event, each super team would receive a multiplication factor of 1.1250 in determining their power rating, while all other participating teams would use a multiplication factor of 1.2500 to determine theirs.


FACTOR 4: Teams designated as “super” teams for 2001 season.

Dan Smith/Backman/Menosse…………………… Concord CA
Hague/Resmondo/Specialty Tanks……………. Columbus OH
Long Haul/Taylor Bros/ShenCorp……………… Albertville MN


FACTOR 5: Each of the four Major (ASA Super and ISA/NSA/USSSA World Series) post season championship events will be given three times the “weight” as eligible regular season events.


FACTOR 6: For a team to be listed in the TPS Power Ratings they must have participated in the minimum number of eligible events on any given date as given hereafter:

May 21……………………. 1 event
June 11………………….. 2 events
June 25………………….. 3 events
July 30…………………… 4 events
August 27………………. 5 events
September 24………….. 6 events


Addendum:

The participation of any team (that disbands or changes their name) in any eligible event will continue to be counted as a participating team (and “super” team if they were so listed) for the purposes of Power Ratings generated from such events. Continuation of Power Ratings generated by a team (that disbands or re-registers under a different name) for that team in any eligible event will be evaluated by the number of rostered players “held-over” for the new team. If such team should “hold-over” ten or more players from the roster previously used all Power Ratings shall continue to be used to calculate that team’s seasonal Power Ratings. If such a team carries over less than ten players, their eligibility to be listed in the Power Ratings shall be determined solely by their performance as a “new” team.

2001 held at Portland, Oregon at Delta Park on September 21-23.


Champion – Texas/AAA, Longview, TX
Runner Up – Bud Light/Weber’s/Worth, Owatonna, MN


Texas/AAA of Longview won the ASA Class B Western National Softball Tournament held September 21-23 in Portland, Oregon. The team went 9-1 in the 41-team event, defeating Bud Light of Owatonna, Minn., in the championship. Texas/AAA also won the Texas ASA State Tournament, the Texas NSA State Tournament, and finished third in the Texas USSSA State Tournament. The team, coached and sponsored by Dan Melton and Jack Greer, qualified to play the Eastern National winner at the ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City. Texas/AAA team members are Steve Hall, tournament MVP; all-americans Bud Weathers, Ryan Verde, Chris Griffin, Scotty Stanley, Richard Boring, Randy Crawford, and Brian Mack; Harold Slate, Scottie McDowell, Mike Scoggin, Roger Kirkland, Casey Bowers, Bart Bradley and Trinity Greer.

The tournament had 64 teams entered and paid originally but 16 teams could not make it to Portland due to flights getting cancelled from 9/11. The airspace was barely open at that point and no one was sure if the tournament would even occur. Tournament favorite Team Miken of Caledonia, MN had all sorts of issues getting enough players to the tournament which caused them to dump an early game and could never recover from it finishing in a tie for 13th place.
