Discussion: ISSA ran the worst national tournament ever!
The worst for me was the fields. This was the first time I visited the East and did not play on red clay. The infields were California type - unpredictable as the ball scooted or hopped. With the speed of todays game, it is too dangerous to play on infields with no predicability. My wife was miserable with no shade anywhere. There were big trees everywhere except in the park. I can play more tournaments if the boss is happy. The umpires were 50-50. I also had an umpire call a ball that was 3" behind the mat. The scheduling was rediculous. With no time limit, the hour and fifteen allowed did not work. The balls were fine, and there was no trouble hitting them out or smoking a hole. Manassas is beautiful. With a nicer complex and a few better umpires, it can be a great tournament.
