24 Public Safety Teams Battle It Out
For Guns & Hoses Glory
at the Tournament of Champions Season Finale!

The 2012 Guns & Hoses softball season finished up with the usual competitive camaraderie, tight scores and great times. This year's TOC tournament was held in Fountain Valley at Mile Square Park under specially ordered, picture perfect softball weather. This final round tournament saw championships crowned in all three G & H divisions for the 2012 season. TOC winners battled for a team set of custom WORTH jerseys as well as each of the division champs being permanently enshrined on the perpetual G & H TOC Trophy that tours the G & H tournament circuit.

After 9 hard fought tourneys, the season long points battles for a TEAM SET of WORTH BATS was also awarded to the overall points winners in Division 1 and Division 2 categories while Division 3 season champs received a team set of custom gloves from DIAZ GLOVES.

2012 Season Points Champions
Division I - Milspec
Division II - Mixed Nuts
Division III – LADA "Gold"

Big "Archie" from WORTH Sports was on hand with Rated Athletics slangin' all kinds of new 2013 product as well as blowing out all the old softball equipment, helping players prepare for battle on the fields. DJ "G" Spot was rockin' the tunes while the usual cheering fans in the stands completed the G & H experience.

The annual TOC is also unique in how the playoff brackets are determined. This is the one and only G & H tournament of the season where bracket placement is decided with a blind draw instead of the usual pool play record. Team captains chose sealed envelopes, which literally meant it all came down to "luck of the draw". This made things very interesting and very unpredictable.

The Pool Play / Round Robin games went something like this...



3-0 SoCal "Downside"
2-1 NAVY "Milspec"
1-2 USMC "Slumpbusters"
0-3 CHP "Pound Da Gap"

3-0 USMC Camp Pendleton Hitmen
1-2 Oxnard PD Regulators
1-2 Unlawful Assembly
1-2 Edwards AFB Rattlers


2-1 LAPD Lawmen
2-1 Mixed Nuts
