SPA World
I see that SPA is charging $750 a team to play in their July world Tourney for 50-55&60 M & M+ teams, with a 4 game guarantee. What is hard to understand is the fee for world in September for AA & AAA plus 65M & M+ teams stayed at $695 with a 5 game guarantee. Both are play in Dalton GA, what am I missing ?

The reasons I have heard are: (1. The length of the games in the major and major plus is much longer than the AA and AAA teams and becaues of it SPA is paying their umpires a higher rate to work those games. (SPA uses two umpires a game at the Worlds).
(2. Due to the length of the major and major plus games, SPA has also incresed the pay for scorekeepers who work those games.

Those are the reason I have heard.

the charge for a tournament fee will keep going up till the market wont pay it any more is my guess.
