Discussion: KC Results

Got rained out Sunday. Saturday...humid & hot, but got in all games. Great job by Will & Randy. We, US Pallet 60's, took first place in AAA, only because we lucked out and had a close win (11-9 in 8 innings) against very good Old School Legends in pool play. Lost to KC Bombers in our first game , so I assume they won there Major division.

Discussion: Hotels in or near Gallatin, Tn?

Went there in May. Very few motels. Best one in Gallatin is probably the Jameson Inn Gallatin. Got good deal online. Our 60's stayed at the Best Western Fairwinds Inn, in Goodlettsville, TN. It is about a 25 minute drive to the fields. Again got good deal online. Both nice & clean.
Need more info e-mail me at sanpal@charter.net

Discussion: Which fields at Schaumburg, Illinois?????

Motel Info: Hey Corky...I will try not to stutter this time. Our Budweiser 65's "social director" got a great deal on rooms near Schaumburg fields. He went through priceline and got a 3 1/2 star motel for $52 plus tax. I called them and the best price I could get was $78. The risk you take is that it is non-refundable. So if you are willing to do that, you can save a bundle.
Good luck...see you in Schaumburg

Our 65's "social director" will be going through priceline for our rooms. He usually gets a great deal, but the risks are rainouts, which did happen to us at a previous tournament. By any chance have any of you booked through SSUSA...if so whay kind of prices did you get. Thanks

Hey guys...one of our players called today and was told that our 65 team would be playing at the Schaumburg fields. Would still like to know about the 60's.

Discussion: Which fields at Schaumburg, Illinois?????

Hey out there...we are taking two teams to the Midwest Championships (a 60 & 65 team). Tried to find out from Sacramento which fields the two teams would play on...& basically got the run-a-round. Want to make motel arrangements and would like to stay close to where we play. Anyone have any information that could help us.

Discussion: Portable Batting Screen

Tim, I have made two portable pitching screens made out of pvc pipe and we have been using it this spring. They can be made to to fit in a check in bag. I have thought about making extras and selling them at tournaments. I know there are some good ones out there, but I didn't want to pay that much money. I could probably make it for a sales price of $150.00 to $160.00 plus shipping. E-mail me if interested or if you have questions. sanpal@charter.net

Mike,
Just purchased a pair of Boombahs. Was told that they were very comfortable and they are. Also bought a backpack. You can get them online. The shoes were about $45. Got both for $107.00, included shipping.

Discussion: Rating issue

I am and have been the manager of the US Pallet 60's team for over 5 years. I was surprised to see our team name listed in your discussion. We have always been rated as a AAA team since I have managed it. We do not have a 65 AAA team or any other team in the 65 division. Some of our past players are now playing with Budweiser 65's, but again we have never pariciipated in any tournaments as a 65 team. Just wanted to clear that up.

Discussion: Ft. Myers Winter NationalsHotels

Hey donnie,
Have the same need. I have spoken with and e-mailed Fran many times. She promised to have it on the SS-USA home page over a week ago. Still haven't seen it yet!
Last year we booked a motel further north because we had been playing in Cape Coral. Wouldn't you know it...they moved our field to Naples, resulting in a 45 minute drive.

Good luck!

Discussion: ISA Worlds

I agree that the ISA Tournament in Bridgeton Missouri was a great location and look forward to future tournaments there. I don't agree with the way Jerry Jackson handled the tournament and have several complaints. First, there was a local 50's team who had there first game scheduled at 4:30 p.m. The first time they heard that the game was rescheduled for 3:00 p.m. was at the Thursday meeting. Since most of their players work, they were not sure they could be there for the new game time. Wouldn't it had been better for Jerry to call at the first opportunity and discuss this with the manager, instead of saying, basically, thats tuff...you play at 3.
I also was very unhappy that a team in our 60's division basically "blackmailed" Jerry into letting them enter as a "AA" when they have won some major tournaments and reportedly had 3 major players on the roster. They have been classified as a "AAA" team since 2004.
Again...a great tournament, a great location, but it was wrong for the other two "AAA" teams to have to give them 5 runs each game. Worse...how could that team lower themselves in taking this action!
