Actually, many of the teams are sponsored by, and named after, Major League Baseball franchises. :fyi:

Edit: Hey fs, the Yankees have a team in the tournament. They're the #11 seed (out of 20). The #20 seed is a team from Ghana.

By the way, this event will be held "in the shadow" of the Texas Rangers' home ballpark. I presume that means the parking lot - wheelchair softball is played on a hard surface. (The chairs don't zoom very well on grass/dirt :fyi: )

MLB teams sponsoring teams in the Wheelchair Softball World Series, along with their seedings:

Minnesota Twins - #2
Chicago Cubs - #4
Cincinnati Reds (I presume - the wheelchair team is the Columbus Reds) - #6
Texas Rangers - #10
New York Yankees - #11
San Francisco Giants - #12
Houston Astros - #16
Chicago White Sox - #17

There are also the West Michigan Rollin' Whitecaps at #13, who I presume are sponsored by the W. Michigan Whitecaps, the Tigers' single-A affiliate. So, go Whitecaps, I guess.

japan needs a run to get the 10 run rule in effect against the canucks

tonight's game might be worth a look... north carolina is looking for their 3rd no hitter in a row... going up against the texas stud who has gone 16.1 innings with 30ks

japan got the run... they have played 3 games without an error and have given up one run ... typical for a japanese team... always fundamentally sound

texas blinked first...1st baseman choked and threw wild to home on a dribbler he caught clean in the bottom of the 7th... north carolina wins 2-1 and advances to the usa championship game on saturday ... texas plays connecticut to see who will play nc

Wheelchair Softball World Series update:

First day of results handwritten on bracket here.
https://www.facebook.com/16291426042357 ... =3&theater

Some scores of note:
The Columbus Reds destroyed the New York Yankees, 13-0. Sorry fs :P
However, the tournament is double elimination. The Yankees followed up by beating the Kansas City Diamonds, 6-2. Yankees face Japan next.

The Reds followed their win over the Yankees by upsetting the #3 seeded Minnesota Flame Throwers, 12-2.

The top seeded and defending champions Nebraska Barons breezed through their first two games, beating the White Sox 12-0 and the National Wheelcats 11-1.

The second seeded Minnesota Rolling Twins also had it easy, with a 17-1 win over the Shepherd Sluggers and a 14-4 decision over the Deep South Hurricanes.

I think you may be on to something there. Just looked up a Facebook post from 2015, when the Barons won their 9th title in 13 years up to that point. I believe they won last year too.

it's good to be a dynasty... wish we could be that again... problem being, that would also go against my allegiance to the 'stros, so i can no longer wish for yankee dominion .... damn crane and his cronies for caving and moving us to the american league :verymad:

The 'Stros have a lot of catching up to do, though. One pennant, and no WS wins, in what, 55 seasons?
