Discussion: SSWC Worlds in Las Vegas:
I thought that the overall tournament was conducted very well. However, my players brought up some negative comments: 1) no foul lines, 2) no out of play lines, no 2nd base at 1st base, 3) no scorekeepers, 4) no scoreboards, 5) no bathrooms or concession stand @ Hollywood Park, 6) batter;s boxes were very sandy & difficult to get out of, 6) umpires did not know diffrence between a force play & a timing play.
Overall, the best part of this tournament was the umpires. They were courteous, in position, & very helpful. However, I know that they got tired of me asking what score they had. With an entry fee of $485, the very least that we should expect are all of the above.
Thank you for your hard work. These comments are meant as creative criticism & hopefully help you with your next tournament.
