The 2021 Guns & Hoses Softball Best in the West - Tournament of Champions Grand Finale took place this past Saturday November 13th at the Fountain Valley Sports Park. The 2021 season finished up with the usual competition, camaraderie, tight scores, and great times. This year’s Random Draw Double Elimination TOC was held under unusually warm conditions for Orange County this time of year. The sun was out with no cloud cover and the temps hit 90 degrees mid day, but then cooled off perfectly for the late afternoon and evening games. This season ending Championship Tournament would decide which Public Safety Team would battle through the brackets and claim the 2021 title and be forever enshrined on the big Guns & Hoses perpetual Champions TOC Trophy. This years TOC was indeed special as we had 3 separate Champions from our earlier 2021 events and all teams that participated have been past Champions at some point in the past few seasons. So it was truly a “Tournament of Champions” from the start.

Sticking with the Corona-Virus theme all season long, teams battled it out for 24 pack cases of Long Neck “Corona” beer, the custom G & H Covid masks, the custom G & H Grim Reaper TOC Champions Team shirts, a team pizza party courtesy of Lampost Pizza, and of course the bragging rights and the forever enshrinement upon the big perpetual Guns & Hoses TOC Champions Trophy.
