Your Grand daughter did a great job and she was very polite. It was a great time. Thanks again.

This was my second event (Little Canada) with Tom and the Lumber Jack's. Tom and I have played in league together for the past few years and he recruited myself and a couple other guys from our team as well...he had nothing but good to say about all the folks involved and I'm glad he talked me into it. The competition in our bracket was good and relatively equal. Playing a couple of times and getting used to the subtle differences in the game sure helps the understanding of it. It would be nice tho if the counts while batting were a bit more consistant. Seems we were at least being asked each game what we wanted to play if not playing something different. I'd personally also like to see the home run numbers be raised/different. One per game is a little light. At least 3, or two and one up..especially when there's 12 in the upper. Finding some serious sponsor money for teams that want to travel and compete would be the biggest priority and obstacle. (And I say that as a partially disabled softball fool that would love to play every chance he could get if health and finance allowed.) Some things would be good to stay a little closer to what's being played in league to help newer guys adjust. That being said... We stayed and watched the Major Plus final game and for anyone that thinks there isn't a marked difference than they need to pay closer attention. Those two teams put on a clinic. Taking any age ball player to watch teams of that caliber play will do nothing but help them and softball in general. I'm a competitive guy but I'll be the first to say either of those teams would hand it to us on a platter on a consistant basis, and we had a couple decent players on our squad....heck, they'd hand it to the competitive 35+ squad I play on and manage more often than not. Any way, it was a great event...even with the alligators and bass boats :) Well run by those involved and the taxi service on site was some of the best ever.
Thanks for lettin' a new "old guy" in on the fun.
