Discussion: VEGAS FIELDS


The 50-AAA division is the largest in the tournament. With 60 or more teams participating, no single facility in Las Vegas can handle it. To get it done on time you have to play games deep into the night. Some of the parks you are probably hoping to play at (BLD, Arroyo, Sunset, Desert Breeze) have league or other restrictions so they aren't an option for the large bracket divisions. Six of the eight diamonds used for the 50-AAA bracket games are excellent. The other two diamonds just aren't as nice.

When the WMC first moved to Las Vegas, the 50-AAA bracket was played in a manner such that teams had to drive from one park to another based on the timing of their wins and losses. That created bad feelings from players who spent their weekend in traffic and/or racing from one park to another. None of that happens under the current system.

CT Sportsplex is a privately owned facility that offers everything from youth baseball tournaments to birthday parties. Unfortunately, there are cost and availability issues that prevent us from using the park on weekends.

Discussion: Bat Thrown Out Of Tourney, Why Not Player????


A bat was removed from play at Phillip Bolen Park on Friday after the end cap came out. That bat has been sent to the Sacramento office for further evaluation.

IF we are talking about the same bat / same situation, I can assure you that no SSUSA staff member walked to the 1B area to speak with the player during that game and no SSUSA staff member deemed the bat to be altered. As staff pointed out in his post, I coud not impose a penalty on without confirmation.

The end cap came out during play. That is the ONLY statement that I made about the bat. I did not (and would not) make any comment on the interior status of the bat to any person at the park. Doing so would have been It would have been completely inappropriate.

Hello Folks-

My phone is ringing and my email is pinging today with questions about the schedule. I am working on it now and should have it completed this evening.

The schedule (version 2.0) was completed last night but we had a team drop out today. So, back to the drawing board.

COACHES will receive a copy of the schedule shortly. It would be greatly appreciated if you could check with your coaches for start times rather than pingning me. I will get everything out ASAP.

For hotel planning purposes, everyone should assume an 8am start both days...

Thanks in advance-

Hello Chris & Ken. It will be good to catch up with you in Loudoun.

Side note- I am trying to get the 40s program going here in the East with a goal of someday rivaling the strong program out west.

Superior 40+ men's team will be in Loudoun. Others?

I talked to the park superintendent this morning and heard some great news. They have made some improvements at Potomack Lakes Sports Complex. Included are parking lot improvements, new walkways, new dugouts and an improved irrigation system.

Potomack Lakes and Phillip Bolen Park are great facilities. So let's get a roll call going for the May tournament in Loudoun County?

For that matter, who is going back for the new Last Chance tournament at the end of August?

Sure, there were a couple of glitches with the banquet, but I have never tried hosting a dinner for 2,100 people. Until I try pulling something of that size off, I won't say not a negative word about it.

Those in attendance heard from some truly inspirational people who have given so much for this country, and battle on.

If my meal was delayed a few minutes, I can look past that with ease.

Wagon- I don't have the access required to post the completed brackets to this site. The actual brackets for S2 were sent back to Sacramento. Dave is working overtime to put PHX schedules together right now, but I'm sure they will get posted soon enough.

Bernie- my apologies for drawing a blank on the WC Thunder finish. Too many things happening at once yesterday, I guess. Congrats on a solid weekend.
