Someone has to play there. Didn't DD type once that they try to move age groups if they can, but the number of fields needed for an age group might come into play.

5) Can the pitcher kick the ball over to the 1st baseman? Not covered I believe.

Might want to include an e-mail/phone number P2929 to help speed up the process. Here is one option. https://www.lvssa.com/home By providing some info, teams from a bordering state might be interested in your services.

Discussion: 70+ Silver Results in the Mesquite/St. G tournament

To Director Don, UIC Casey, a big thank you for your assistance in the top of the first in the "IF" game between Git-R-done and Elite 70's. Our lead off hitter Bobby Nap had tweaked his hammy in a previous game, but led off with a base hit and player/manager Al Castaldy ran for Bobby. When Larry G. hit a gapper, as Al was rounding second, he forgot that he told us the wet bag rule was in effect and face planted the infield. AL finally recognized Dave Barnes, but was in bad shape. Doc Casey took over, did some triage, while waiting for the EMT's. A special thank you to the support/concern from both teams and the GTD player who sat down and put his back up against Al to keep him upright. After 30 minutes, Al was up and grumpy as ever, but thankful for the help. Here is part of Dave's recent e-mail to our team. "He suffered 3 facial fractures and stitches to close the open wound in his forehead, that according to the hospital staff after cleaning the wound and closing it with stitches, told him they could see his brain, and Al said "WHAT BRAIN".

A very good ending to what initially didn't start well.

This question was asked in another thread recently and I believe double D mentioned that the order is on its way to a Texas (?) port.

Stop by field 6 at the Snow Canyon SB complex tomorrow at 4PM and ask for Bob Haugh and you might get picked on a team for the O60 league. Theirs also the 070 Tues. & Thur. League. Same fields (6&7) starting at 10AM. Good luck!⚾️

Discussion: Bullhead Last Week?

Yes Dbax, not all of the umpires were "amazing". Several fields are still using welcome type mats for home plate and they're about 3" short in length. Mon. to Wed. had high winds and some games only had strikes called which was helpful. Those using fields Tri 2&3 were told a cart would take anyone down to the regular bathrooms by the pickle ball courts. The cart was not always on site. But, there were many very close games in all age groups.

Discussion: Is it time for Full Time Screen?

bkb555 If the batter hits a pop up in front of the screen and the catcher will never get to it, the pitcher has to wait and hope it lands and bounces past the screen. The same with a slow grounder off to either side of the screen. They have to wait for it to pass the imaginary line. I just wish a strike wasn't called if the screen is hit. It's great the pitcher isn't hit, but the batter gets penalized.

Perfect!. Now Mr. IT guru, can you go back to that post and delete the whole pasted link? As long as it's in that post, many posts of others, I believe, extend into the woods. (Is there a way to go back to our posts to edit them? I sure haven't figured it out.)

Dave,

Could you split the link I posted above above on booking.com since, at least on my screen, it has caused all the posts to go way off my screen to the right and underneath several adds. Thanks.

Old highway 91 is a great ride from exit 8 to Ivins, especially when the sun hits the hills the right way.

Fastest way to LV from Mesquite is probably I15 through the Gorge, take exit 4, stay to the right, and LV is a few miles past the Pilot station.

Getting off at exit 8 for Beaver Dam and on to Ivins, is a great 40 mile ride. The SB complex is a little over five miles once you leave Old Hwy 91 and Gubler is even closer.

As a local resident of the St. G area for seven years I do not have that issue. What I've seen over the years is starting mid February, this area has many activities going on. All kinds of sporting tournaments from college women SB to youth SB, BB, and soccer. The 10 day Parade of Homes raps up this weekend. Early May is the Ironman 70.3 and later on the Women's Junior College SB championships. Many golfers visit over the Winter. Believe me, the businesses appreciate the visitors, so it could be a supply and demand issue.

A teammate of mine told me about Booking.com. Here is what I pulled up for St. G from the 19th to check out on the 22nd.

I searched the lowest price. Three nights for $150 and less ain't bad. For those who RV out there, that might be something to consider.

Good luck to all.
