Police, Fire, Military and Co-Ed divisions all claim March Madness titles in the 2012 Season Opener

The 2012 Guns & Hoses Softball Tournament Series officially got up to bat for another season of Public Safety Softball and Good Times. The annual March Madness "St. Patty's Party" season kick off delivered the usual competitive games, friendly camaraderie, beautiful softball weather and festive atmosphere. With 4 separate divisions from a wide variety of public safety agencies, stiff competitions and close scores were the theme for the day. With 27 registered teams and only 4 fields available at Mile Square Park we were forced to utilize the Huntington Beach Sports Complex for division 3 and Co-ed pool play.

Off the field action saw Rated Athletics slangin' all kinds of softball equipment to help players elevate their game and prepare for battles on the fields. DJ "G" Spot was rockin' the tunes while the girls from the Massage Zone were on hand to help ease the pains and sooth sore softball muscles. The Guns & Hoses experience was further complimented with the usual cheering fans in the stands and lots of sunshine and sunscreen.

This was another single elimination tournament giving all teams a 3 game guarantee, 2 round robin game and an automatic playoff berth in their respective division playoffs. The Pool Play / Round Robin games went something like this...
