Discussion: Shadow Rock Complex

Hey Crusher, Is it not still professional baseball when you play in Toronto on the turf? Ever see a baseball bounce on that turf, samething as the 2 fields at shadow rock. ITS ALL ABOUT ADJUSTMENTS!!!!! No matter what sport you play its all about adjustments. The 2 upper fields I agree there is no adjusting to terrible and dangerous field conditions.

I hate to say it, but the only way to get senior softball to look at different options is to hit them where it hurts, IN THE WALLET.....I like playing in vegas twice a year don't get me wrong, but its time to retire shadow rock and hollywood....After all we are in the city that never sleeps, use it your advantage. Players can still drink there beer 24/7 in vegas.....Ive played in many late into night or morning tourneys in vegas, there actually fun, you just have to plan ahead little.

What makes vegas so special that there to good to reschedule leave play for a weekend or two including fridays. I lived in Phx for 20 years and rose moffert, victory lane, papago, and a few others would just simply push the league play at the parks back a week during those times to accommodate fast,pitch, little league and even the gay worlds at rose moffert and the other parks, just the way it was. Why is vegas so special, we bring a lot of money to vegas for the winter tournament not so much for the spring tournament.

I know if I wont spend the money to play in the fall tourney any more if were stuck at shadow rock. I can deal and adjust with weather conditions its part of playing sports outdoors, but when you have extremely terrible field conditions Im drawing the line. Luckily I play outfield, catch or DH and the field conditions don't really effect me to much but the others guys on the team are effected a lot by extremely poor field conditions.

Maybe its time to burn the midnight oil at a few parks, I have no problem playing at 10/11pm after all were in vegas baby, you can sleep during the day, just as long as if I play an 10/11pm game friday night win or lose i don't have to play till noon or after the next day I'm good with it.

Hell, I don't give a rats ass either el dbaxo it was for reference only, did you get your sombrero out while pulling the weeds every park needs a landscaper. We been staying that for years about those two parks but It always has fallen on deaf ears. Its no fun when it happens to you isn't it, suck it up and move on, your probably gonna be there later this year, bring your camera its a great view from up there...LOL LOL It was in english i could read it LMAO!!!!

Hey Dddddbax, "YOU WANT SOME CHEESE WITH THAT WINE" Like i said before i've played approx 15 senior tournaments in vegas in the 50's and approx 80% of the games I've played at show rock and Hollywood, so if my math is right thats approx 60 games up there. I agree the two parks suck but its time you guys played a few years up there and let the 50's enjoy playing at Lorenzi, BLD, and arroyo grande for a few years. Fair is Fair......

I think LB Softball is full, I noticed in vegas they picked up a guy from AZ thats pretty good. They were missing 2 or 3 guys because of last min back outs in vegas.

5$(actually 4$ with the token) is small price to play just as long as I don't have to play at shadow rock and hollywood....I'd take arroyo grande any time, sunset station is 5 mins away, everything is 45 to 60 mins away at shadow rock and hollywood weird....Just think the winter session costs 745$ plus 5$ a day at BLD....

FOFO: you weren't bitching just whining alittle...

I agree 5$ per day is to much for such a big tourney with an entry fee of 595$. The cost should be 2$ maybe 3$ or just leave it at 5$ for the whole weekend. Learn how to sneak in its easy, there is only youngsters working the gate they don't care.... ANYTHING IS BETTER THEN PLAYING AT SHADOW ROCK AND HOLLYWOOD!!!!!!

FOFO: quit bitching, in all the vegas senior tournaments I've played in(15) I've play at shadow rock and hollywood about 75% of the time, Ive never played at BLD. I thought I was in paradise at arroyo grande one time. You get stuck there once, big freaking deal, suck it up and enjoy the view especially at night, thats about all there is up there... LOL LOL About the only place to go up there is TIMBERS BAR & GRILL, East Lake Mead Blvd & Mt Hood Street....

Nothing wrong with Arroyo Grande, Its got my vote. Cheyenne no way played there in my early 30's when the light poles were inside the fences and in play, Lorenzi used to be the same way. LOL LOL The good old days playing in the Budweiser tournaments in vegas. Lorenzi isn't in nicest area of town either.

Its about time other teams and people are to seeing the problem 50AAA is facing year after year after year in vegas spring and winter. Shadow Rock and hollywood need to be retired for the list of fields used by senior softball.

Thank you:

Are you putting the 50's on the getto fields, shadow rock and hollywood out on the far north east side

Discussion: Major 40+ Brackets

Hey hook we were stuck at shadow rock and hollywood park for all of the 50's tourney what a treat those places are, pretty much getto....

Just be thank full your not a shadow rock there is absolutely nothing to do out there, the snack bar is terrible. Hope your not a holloywood park either nothing there at all just a few water coolers and a porta potty LOL LOL. your So far north east at these two parks you have no time to go anywhere decent between games. We never had a chance to go to BLD and have an oppurtunity to buy bats or nice senior shirts or swag. I heard out at shadow rock as of 9am friday in the 50's tourney that all the nice senior vegas shirts where all gone, none were available to us at shadow or hollywood not even bats, how sad...

What can we expect for 695$ per team (484 teams = $336,380.00) WOWWWW!!!

Discussion: 55AAA Bracket

I dont understand why the brackets cant be kept up to date and filled out as the games end. It doesn't take a computer nerd to do this. I watched the tournament directors at shadow rock and hollywood parks sitting in there chairs doing nothing while the games are being played, they could be emailing or txt'n the winners and losers and scores or even calling in as the games finish to a central computer and have a person that, thats all they do is post the info from each park in almost real time or at least no more then a 30 min delay. I do this type of stuff on a daily basis and its so simple to do anybody could it.

I did some research on the teams we were playing in fridays seating games on google and came across brackets from senior softball from 2012 that were not filled out, so this has been a problem for a long time. With smartphones and tablets now a days it would be nice to be able to keep up to date on who's winning and who's losing in real time almost as its happening. One person dicated to keeping the brackets updated would be nice and very much appreciated by all the teams, its always nice to know who your playing next when your not at the park or how your hometown teams are doing at other parks.
