Discussion: what fields? for Vegas

And Dave, would it be safe to say that none of the games will be in the City of Las Vegas except for BLD?

Discussion: Question for Dave-Reno Tournament

Hey Donnie,I asked a respectful question directed at Dave, not you. We don't need flamers on this board with nothing better to do than criticize.

Discussion: Question for Dave-Reno Tournament

Dave, thanks for your prompt reply. If I understand this, six teams will play a Major Plus team in seeding play, and four teams will not. Since the four lowest seeded teams will have to play an additional bracket game, wouldn't the four teams NOT playing a Plus team in seeding play have a potential advantage as to where they seed?

Discussion: Question for Dave-Reno Tournament

Our team is playing 65 Major at Reno. At the Southwest Championships, Timberworks beat us by 25 runs and knocked us out of the winners bracket. It appears that seeds 7-10 in Reno will have to play an extra bracket game than the first 6 seeds. We don't want to be a low seed and face an extra game, but we play Timberworks in Game One. Will our game against them affect how we're seeded as we're one of only two teams that will face them in the tournament? I'm hoping (should we lose) we're not getting kicked down by this team again since they don't play 8 other teams in seeding play.

Titan, for what purpose?

Discussion: WHAT DO WE DO WITH TIMBERWORKS?

Well said, as I've had the same thoughts. Our team (Sin City Stars) won our first two bracket games and were feeling pretty good. One more win would have put us into the semi-finals, but Timberworks knocked us down to the loser's bracket while beating us by 25 runs. Yes, we did not hit well against them, but it wouldn't have mattered because even if we scored 30 runs, they would have beaten us.

As for the $795 Worlds, who wants to put in that time, money and effort to get their butts kicked and moved down to the loser's bracket, which is hard to survive in a 630 team tournament?

WE don't get to pick four out of market players like they do, and it's intent to encourage more Major Plus teams by doing this has not panned out.

I play to win. Third place means nothing to me. I can't speak for my team, but I like the idea of knowing up front if Timberworks will be participating.

I hope this post doesn't get deleted like past ones.

I've heard from several sources (but not confirmed) that field costs in St. George have risen quite a bit.

Come out to Lorenzi park Field 4 Tuesday morning at 7:30 am. Ask for Chuck Godman. Game starts at 8am and you can see if you measure up with the skill sets you see on the field. Good luck.

About 10 minutes away, there is a large open area adjacent to the Cheyenne fields.

Discussion: somthing very interesting

I think 6 balls will suffice for most teams, I can't see it working in the Worlds for a team coming out of the losers bracket when it's a huge bracket, say 60aaa, 14 games? That's a lot of games to stretch 6 balls. Maybe more are given out in that case?

Discussion: Kudos on new balls

In Las Vegas, we use the ISA X-Rock 50 weeks a year every Tuesday and Thursday. This week we tried the new SSUSA Microcell ball. It DOES NOT hit the same as the Rock unless you hit it square. Balls that carry out of the park by hitting the bottom half with underspin will not go as far as the Rock.

I believe 10 ft. max would add more offense to the game, but do we really need that?

You're right, Dave. Even large casino projects are announced in this town that never get built.

Las Vegas is talking about building more complexes, so this may not be a long term problem.

Thank you, Nancy Allen. Your comments are appreciated.

So this appears a tricky line to cross. A 1st or 3rd base coach can yell "safe" to his runner and a teammate can say "high", but not "illegal"? Then it depends on each umpire to set the tone. I asked an umpire how can I coach my batter on these issues and he didn't have an answer.
