Discussion: NCSSA Championships kudos
Simply put, outstanding!
Ron and his organization, and John and his tournament crew, deserve a loud round of applause for a job well done this past weekend. The top group was comprised of the top eight teams on the West Coast and i know that all of those teams appreciated John making this an open bracket where the best could play the best - congrats to NWL for a well-earned victory. The competition was intense, and yet the camaraderie between the teams was well evidenced. We loved playing at night, although we do understand it may not work for the older guys.
And lo and behold, all teams were guaranteed five games, the tourney was completed in two days, the grounds crew keep the dugouts well stocked with water, teams were not asked to retrieve balls yet play never stopped while we waited for new balls, and we got to play at a Big League Dreams complex, all for the cost of $300!!
