The NV FORCE team will be at Chavez on Friday we play at 1100 and 230 on fields 1 and 3. If anybody feels like it stop by and say hello. It would be nice to put a face to a name on this board. We are looking forward to this tourney and playing some of the western teams. Thanks Harry # 20 NV FORCE

W.E. Ruth Realty (Western Champs from WA State) will be there for your National Championship game. My friends Joe Franco (MGR), Rick Littlejohn (LC) and Jeff Ragan (RF) and the rest will give you a good game. They are a great bunch of guys.

As a 55AAA team here in WA we played Ruth 60M many times this year. They are tough and when they have all of their best personnel they are a champion. The personnel evolves over time but this team has been Major or Major+ all the 7 years I've been around, with many titles.

I think that they were just re rated this year or last. I figure that we will have our hands full. We will show up and hopefully represent ourselves in a respectful manner. Thanks Harry

Hi birdie:

Shane is right that Ruth team is tough. They have a great lineup top to bottom plus they are have are good on defense.
I play on the same team as Shane and hope to come by and introduce myself. The company I work for (38 years) JCI Jones Chemicals also is the main sponsor for our club.

Thanks:

Birdie,

Good luck this year in the National Championship game, it was fun playing your team last year (nice guys). The Ruth team is supposed to be very good, they did not go to any of the tournaments we went to early in the year before they so nicely kicked us to Major plus. They combined guys off different Ruth teams and even took one of our guys that lives up there part of the year. It should be a very good game.

Shane, Ruth was a very good team. They beat us pretty good today in the East West Championship game. What a bummer for us. They did play pretty good. Oh well there is always tomorrow. Thanks Harry

Bob, I do not know how but we made it to Sunday. We lost our first game but managed to pull a few out. We play at 800am on Sunday. The goal now is to win one game on Sunday in Arizona. Something that we have never did. Thanks for asking, Harry

Ken, We went one and one today. Ruth Reality beat us again and we where finished. Great tourney and fields. The lights could have been much better at Chavez. When the outfielders cannot see the ball till it hits the ground that is not good. Thanks Harry

mad dog, I do not know who one. I went back to the hotel and had a few vodkas. It was nice to meet you and wish you the best. I did like how you hauled your equipment a round. I might have to get me one of them. Good luck this week. Thanks Harry

birdie-we played Chavez and the night games were an extreme challenge for outfielders. We could not even see the ball coming off of the bat. One ball Friday night against the Chicago Panthers almost hit me where I stood in left field and I never saw it until it hit 5 feet in front of me.

Webbie, We played at Desert West last year and I thought that the lights were bad there. Chavez was a horrible place to play at night. I was surprised that there was not an injury. I am glad you made it out ok. Thanks Harry
