Discussion: Las Vegas Field Assignments

SweetP ... We performed on our promise to not have you at the same facility for this year's Southwest Championships ... The 60-Majors played at Big League Dreams all three days last year during the 2013 Southwest Championships, as did the 60-Major+ and 60-AAA (two of three days) ...

Of the teams assigned to BLD later this month, the 40-Major+, 50-AAA and 55-Major did not play at BLD in either Las Vegas tournament last year, and the 50/55-AA there only for Championship Sunday of last year's World Masters ... It was actually more about the mathematics of fields vs. teams/games/league restrictions that led to this year's assignments at BLD ... But it WAS a bonus that the assigned teams were the ones who had gone the longest since their last appearance at BLD ... Seems like a very fair arrangement from our perspective ...

Discussion: Has anybody seen CERCE?

I think you have this a little bit wrong, Rich ... He signed with the New York Mets, not the Red Sox, about 29 years ago ... CERCE is just his user name here ... His real name is Sidd Finch! ... (Note to 40-Masters youngsters: Google that name and read the Sports Illustrated article)

Hey Rich ... Your post is about nine hours behind the curve! ... The results and scores were posted at noon Left Coast time on Tuesday ... Which "ain't all that bad" for having traveled back from Florida all day Monday ... But heck, it's probably not as silly as #19 asking for results nine hours before the tournament ended! ... [grins]

The "rollover" was just my front tire over the laptop at 1 MPH! Just a classically negligent move on my part.

I need a "Timex" brand laptop that can survive an SUV rollover. Take a licking and keep on ticking

Not yet, since I crushed my laptop at 4:15 AM on Monday morning at the office parking lot before heading to the airport! Yep, I'm THAT guy this time. New laptop delivered in Florida, but going to be a few days before data is restored to new laptop and back running again. Ughhhhh!

db14 ... That depends on the color of the apples! Green apples entitle Johnny to breeze right thru any stop lights along the way. Red apples require Johnny to stay and wait for the light to change. [grins]

Discussion: Las Vegas Fields and Umpires

The batters boxes at Big League Dreams are 4' x 7' at the outside dimension of the lines and are correctly located relative to home plate. I measured them with a tape measure in anticipation of this issue. As such, they were exactly to specification as to depth and are 1' too wide. The only other difference is that the first couple of batters were unable to "wipe the lines" in the carpet to create even further room to roam while at bat.

Discussion: Las Vegas Fields and Umpires

Elimination bracket games, by design, are scheduled on the same field as the Championship/"If" game(s) ... Those teams may play as many as six consecutive "win or go home" games ... That is a very difficult task without compounding it by having them pack up and move back and forth between games ... Winners' bracket teams have the luxury, which they have earned, of being able to suffer a loss and continue playing ... This scheduling philosophy is intentional, supportable and not likely to change ...
