The Annual Toys for Tots Open Division is normally played in Palm Springs, California but this year was moved to the Space Coast Complex in Viera, Florida due to California's covid-19 restrictions.  The 9 team tournament started Saturday morning with a 2 game pool play seeded into a double elimination tournament ending Sunday.  There were 3 Major teams, 2 AA teams, 2 A teams, 1 B, and 1 C.  In the 1st round of the winner's bracket Competitive Edge a Florida 'A' team upset the MPT Rentals Major team 23-22 and Competitive Edge went on to beat SNI/La Famiglia and then Smash It/Newbreed to win the winner's bracket!  Meanwhile MPT Rentals dropped deep into the loser's bracket and sent home Riot, Resmondo, and SNI on Saturday night and then Sunday morning beat Smash It to get to the championship where they "double dipped" Competitive Edge 33-17 and 35-23 to win the tournament!  The games were played in the White Quad with the 325 foot home run fences.

All of the teams were missing a few of their regular players but it looked like a great offseason event with good weather.
