2022 T.O.C. Recap
8 Teams Battle It Out For Guns & Hoses Glory during the 2022 Tournament of Champions Season Grand Finale
The 2022 Guns & Hoses softball season finished up with the usual competitive camaraderie, close battles, and tight scores. This year’s Double Elimination TOC was held at Edison Park in Huntington Beach under specially ordered, picture perfect softball weather. This final Guns & Hoses event would decide which team would be crowned as TOC Champions for 2022 and forever enshrined upon the big custom G & H perpetual TOC Trophy.
The teams battled it out in this unique “blind draw” event. This is the one and only G & H tournament of each season where bracket placement is decided with blind draw envelopes instead of the usual pool play record. All teams were given one warm up game to shake the dust off, and then all teams moved on to the Double-Elimination brackets. After the warm up games concluded, each team Captain made their way to the registration table and chose a sealed envelope, for their team’s placement upon the brackets. This style of bracket placement literally meant it all came down to “luck of the draw”. This made things very interesting and very unpredictable.
