Houston has closed
There is no doubt that softball is alive and ready to play in Houston. Firemans EarlyBird in Pasadena, Tx(east of Houston) is closed. Toooo many teams. It's teams and players like this that make softball so much fun. Jim and I are proud to be a small part of it. Will see all the teams (26) Feb. 21 and 22. Good luck to all.

Armiho and Mad dog. I do like to keep teams in same bracket, but often have teams, different ages, playing against each other(lower rated team will get runs). Also am open to allowing some different age men into different age brackets. lol Been done before. Prefer the correct age bracket, but guys get hurt, need a player or two, and this is a get your season started, fun tournament. Its exactly what it has been for 6 years. Come out, meet old friends, make new ones, enjoy some good competitive softball. Have had a lot of the same teams for 6 years, so it must be fun. Just wanted to clear that up.
PS Don't forget to slip the green stuff in the TD's back pocket. See yall soon. GT

Hi Greg, I need to clear up some confusion. I received a call from a manager that thought this posting meant that the 6th annual Houston tournament at Bayland Park was full. To clarifya couple of misunderstandings he had.
1. Although the Feb 21 tournament in Pasadena Tx is full, as GT announced.
2. The HCSSL league located at Houston's Bayland Park hosted the Annual Houston spring tournament for the past 5 years. This year we changed the annual spring tournaments name from 'Early Bird' to 'Spring Classic' to match our 'Fall Classic' tournament, but the place and people are the same. Greg at Pasadena is hosting Pasadena's first spring tournament their and taken on the tourney name that the HCSSL used before changing it. Greg did organize most of the old Houston tournaments when he was our tournament director. Greg always throws a great tournament. Together these two Texas leagues show players what southern hospitality is all about. Many Houston players will be at both tourneys.

The Houston 6th annual spring tournament located in the HCSSL's Bayland park in Houston Tx is still taking team's for February 28th.
If you didn't make the Pasadena tourney or want to make both, feel free to sign up while you can.

Full details are available at WWW.HCSSL.ORG from the tournaments button or contact me, Robin Wells: tournaments@hcssl.org

rwells, A phone call to me would have been sufficient instead of a history lesson. Stop playing Follow the Leader and losing credibility. I started the name EarlyBird not hcssl. Also, this is the second tournament in Pasadena, not the first. But the name stays with me. As you will recall, last years first one in Pasadena was flooded out by someone who turned the sprinklers on all night and flooded us out. We moved it that morning to your park, Thanks to Jerry Fairlies and yourself. Got any ideas who flooded the fields? Take care of Bayland Park and don't concern yourselves with what Jim and I do. You don't see us putting a message in your thread. We don't need to.
PS There is a resaon Jim and I get 26 plus teams to play in a tournament.
Next time call me.

GT, I did not intend to upset you. I truly wish you the best of luck with your tournament. Its just that naming your thread "Houston has closed" sounded like the Houston tournament at Bayland. 26 teams, wow! It sounds like your really going to have a busy weekend. Again, best wishes with your spring tournament in Pasadena.

APOLOGY--rwells-----Robin, please accept my apology for my response. It was inappropiate on my part. YOUR truly a good and sincere person and I was wrong to treat you as I did with my response. I do apologize. Possibly down the run, we'll be able to work together. Good luck on your tournament.
