Yea the bight lights and slots are a draw in Vegas. As for rooms in St G. there are also condos reasonable too. I've used them twice @ 250 for he whole week. Some may not be in town but worth the very short drive, especially if you do other sports.
Vegas sticks it to you for Fri\sat night rates though.

FOFO
I've gone to St G without a room booked twice and never had a problem finding a room. both times I found one on St George ave or blvd (what ever) Quite a few people book in Mesquite and travel the 40 or so miles back and fourth. Did that once.

As for Holly wood park, I played there twice and only prob I remember, if you can call it one is that it's backed up to a school so sometimes BP isn'y easy...other is the walk from the paerking lot about 200 yards+_.... google it and place the icon yellow guy on the road near top of the map shown and go to the right. you get a long view of the field(s).

First post is also referred to as an assisted HR. Thereby no 'count'towards a direct flight over the fence.
If ball doesn't go over the fence its advance at your own risk...

LeeLee50, Sparky.1;
Those gross numbers are just one of many not mentioned on credit side of the account, then you have the debit side to consider which you didn't mention. That is substantial as well. That said, the net profit is substantial as well.
SSUSA fees have increased quite a bit but I'd bet some other cost have as well.
You\we have choices. attend, find another venue, maybe closer or not, or stay home and not play.
I rarely attend for many reasons but it is the best out there other than the Huntsman Games.

I think the majority would prefer to play.

The other argument would be to add another 'session'. After all, it's gone form 1 to 3 as it in now, so why not a #4.
Maybe they could get a better contract arrangement.

Maybe more thought to a move to a more accommodating venue like PHX or St. G or split Vegas areas up so some are there others are in say St. G. St George area seems to be more apt to do these things. The area also has the parks as do PHX areas.
But then it all depends on those contracts that seem to auto renew.
There were post about age brackets\ratings were to move around so hopefully that will happen so teams are stuck in same locations year after year for better or worse.

Discussion: Rubber bat knob

As for length being 34". I've been told there is a 'variation' or a word to that effect for that which is roughly 1\8 inch... IMO that is still over the 34" so go figure on size limits....
However, maybe it's like speed limits...
But sure see your point.

D...Dan,
Do not remember ever seeing on of those, probably for a good reason.
LOL he might take a tennis ball and cut it place silly putty inside, and mold it to the knob. will look about the same at least.

I can see why he might like it though. Hand palm over it allowing for slightly more leverage if it doesn't come off in the swing follow through. I use a thick weight lifers glove for that because it fills the gap between the pinky finger and the knob depending on the handle (thickness) size.

Discussion: toughest position

Robo2,
We share positions in this I'd agree w\ ya but add to it the pitcher is supposed to back up all corners as well as I do. So my vote if this were put to a vote, the pitcher.

I know many that would still play.
I doubt there would actually be any REAL difference in doing that compared to what we have available now.

Alloy bats dent, wave and crack. Used with Balls 47 to 52 cor with average of 525 comp.
Composite bats crack, break are used with balls @ 44 \375 or lessor balls.

Both these equipment type comparisons fly about same distances. Damage rates are about same also.
While I'm sure some will disagree, that's ok too. But I doubt this will happen because there is too much money changing hands involved. Those that did make the alloys probably still have the machinery to start up again though. The process is very interesting to see in person.
