Bombers are definitely a strong team, they loss their 1st game in a long tim e recently. Yard dogs I haven't seen in KP. I saw them play the Force in mid-March in CP. YDogs hung in, but eventually the Force won big.

It's clearly after spring break and now the beginning of May. I'm interested in reading the forum's opinions about the top 5 8U teams at this point. It's evident that CP and KP are two totally different things. At the age of 8, most kids are going to hit a CP batting practice ball, so let's talk about KP. List your top 8U teams at this point. The survey is still out on the 5th top team but here's my list in no particular order:
Yard Dogs
West Cobb
Georgia Expos
Mizuno Gwinnett
?????

Couldn't agree more with your list. 4 standouts, 5th spot waiting for a few to take it!

No particular order...

Yard Dogs
West Cobb Bombers
Mizuno Gwinnett
Georgia Expos
5th: I'd say it's between Parkview, Kennesaw, Titans Orange or HardKnox Orioles.

Some good competition starting to shape up in this KP division. Some really impressive baseball being played when the Top 4 matchup that's for sure!!!

I will give my opinion after this weekend TC..The Force plays their first KP tourney.

I agree with top 3..but the rest of the field is definite wide open.

1.WC Bombers
2.Yard dawgs
3.Mizuno

The Force does play this weekend but who's in the tournament to get a good measure of how they are kid pitch wise?

Looking at the tournament, it's clearly labeled D2/D3. You know what type of competition you're going to face. Clearly its not D1. At any rate we'll see what happens in the D2/D3 tournament.

Just so you know, TC does not classify 8KP into divisions. The tournaments is labeled D2/D3, but notice there is no classification next to 8KP. I spoke with the tournament director with that question before for my son's team.

Its clear that you are new this thing we call travel ball..this is my second round at the rodeo..8kp is what it is...I wouldn't look to far into it...there are going to be some good teams...but the field is wide open..TC is a open division at 8u...now if a team that you are on think they are that much better then 8u...I would suggest play up into 9u(lol)

littleroc we do play 9U but not above anyone. Clearly this isn't my first rodeo either, not a little league, high school, nor college. There are some legitimate 8u teams as I mentioned above. Maybe your team isn't on that list and you're a little upset at that but for what? This is a forum based off of people's thoughts which equate to opinions. Stop being so sensitive LOL!

May the Force be with you bigroc, lilroc, whatever you prefer.... Congrats to those kids! Guess you're gonna have to break out your sensitive side going forward, lol. The Force is a force to be reckoned with and should be on the list, right?

Titans Orange split with West Cobb, Generals and Expos. Played Mizouno in the fall, but lost. So they(we) gotta be on that list, right?
