2016 GSL “King of the Hill” tournament report!



GSL "King of the Hill"


Columbus, Ohio


June 25-26


TG/Red's Astros/K&G/Headlines/Worth knocked off 3rd Street in the winner's finals Saturday and JBL/Tailgaters in the championship on Sunday at the Lou Berliner Park in Columbus, Ohio.  Unfortunately there was no livestreaming and I don't see any online brackets to look at.

The "King of the Hill" is an annual GSL event that draws teams from all classifications in the midwest.  In this tournament all teams start out in the open division bracket with 90+ teams where the games are played with a 6 home run limit and a DHH (Designated Home Run Hitter).  The DHH can hit as many homers as he can without it counting towards the total.  If the DHH is walked then anyone in the lineup can hit a homer without it counting towards the teams total until the DHH comes up to bat again.  If a C, D, or E team loses in the first 2 rounds then they drop to their respective C, D, E double elimination bracket in their own class.
