All those California teams must be staying home. Looked at the Team list and there are 5 total 55 Major Teams. Not much of a turn-out. Could have done better than that in Aurora.............

Even if you leave in in NORCAL there has to be better facilities somewhere. What ever happened to Twin Creeks in Sunnyvale. Used to play a lot of tournaments there. Nice place, all fields in one location. Seems like they could find a better spot.

How about letting team know the tentative field assignments BEFORE they pay to enter. Some teams may choose not to play if they know they have to play at Shadow Rock.

Now E6. Let's not get all sensitive. I wasn't discrediting your post and saying don't give the Adidas bat a look. I'm just saying don't use Las Vegas to judge it's performance. I doubt it will turn every hitter who usually hits for a high average and and hits a couple dingers a weekend into a guy who hits nearly .800 and has 8 dingers in 6 games on primarily half swings.
And if DBAX says I'm right I'm probably right. Guy knows what he is talking about.

E6, I wouldn't use Vegas as a measuring stick on any bat. The use of the ROCK ball makes everyone a Home Run hitter.

Discussion: Shadow Rock Complex

Hey Dave,
I have to agree with you on this one. As I stated in a previous post there are only two playable fields at Shadow Rock. The two grass fields are in terrible condition. They no longer use them for any adult softball events, only girls fast pitch as nobody will play there. Not sure why Clark County won't maintain them but they don't.
Cheyenne was recently redone and the outfields are in good shape but the rest of the facility, bathrooms, bleachers etc. is still horrible.
No easy answer. Maybe break the tournament into two weekends or make sure Desert Breeze is available. It's a tough one for sure.

I would gladly pay $10.00/Day to play at BLD versus free at Shadow Rock. Sometimes you pay a little extra for quality. Just Saying............
Thanks Nick I'll try and whine a little less. Bottom line is I will play about anywhere. Just want to get on the field and compete and someday beat Dbax and the Bandits.

Nickname,
I believe there was no bitching in any of my posts. I have been fortunate to play at Shadow Rock in Kids tournaments as well as many SSUSA events as I am a Las Vegas resident. I only asked why a couple other venues were not being used and Staff answered my question.
Hey Dave, that's not a bad idea.

I meant turf Infields. Also BLD is a heck of a lot better than Shadow Rock..............................

Best things about BLD are the Turf Batters boxes and outfields and also the facility itself. Indoor seating, cold beer etc.

Thanks for the quick response. I guess with BLD as a reward we will go ahead and play Sunday.

Staff. We (55 Major) drew the short straw this year and got stuck at Shadow Rock. We all know the place is hard to get to, has only two usable fields and just generally is a poor venue. Why wouldn't you try and get Desert Breeze or even Doc Romeo an leave Shadow Rock off the rotation entirely?
I guess on a positive note biting the bullet now should mean we wont get stuck there in the Masters....................

Discussion: courtesy runners

Lumberjack, not a bad idea. I still would rather have limits on the number you can use. Makes a huge difference having a slow guy on base who can only go base to base versus a guy that goes 1st to 3rd and 2nd to home. I'm most definitely against having guys on a team that do nothing but run. That's just not how the game was meant to be played.

Discussion: courtesy runners

While I believe and have seen teams with guys that do nothing but courtesy run, I cannot imagine anyone wanting to do it. To much fun playing D and hitting.
As for me I would like to see a restriction of one runner per inning for the use of courtesy runners in the Major and Major Plus divisions in the 50 thru 60 and maybe 65 divisions. Seems to me if you are a Major or Major Plus player you should be able to run.
