It’s obvious from your “prediction” of who was going to win Spring Worlds that you might be personally biased concerning that subject. It doesn’t seem fair to the rest of us that played in the Spring Worlds that you would “assume” they would win.
Congratulations to the War Eagles for doing what we all strive to do in every tournament; get a high seed, stay in the winner’s bracket and get timely hitting from your players.
Everybody had to play in the 90+ degree weather, with the sun in the outfielder’s eyes and some even had to play on the baseball fields. And it took it’s toll on everyone that played, including the War Eagles.
Scrap Iron Diamonds played 7 games, Rezults played 8 games and Veterans 1st played 9 games. Sounds like none of those teams were ready to “give” the crown to the War Eagles.
As to parity, almost half the games played were won by 2 or fewer runs. And if you asked any of the other 12 teams in the tournament, your “prediction” would have been met with a lot of skepticism.
IMHO, Kentucky may indeed win the NCAA Tournament, but Notre Dame didn’t think so, nor do I imagine Duke, Michigan State or Wisconsin do either. That’s why they play the games, sir.
As to all the teams that played in Mesquite last weekend, great job and I look forward to playing against you guys again in Vegas if the good Lord grants me my wish of being able to play this game called softball!
