Western Worlds NSA
Best 2 out of 3 against Scrap on Sunday
irrespective of seating games.
The Old A\'s prevailed but not after losing to SI in the first game
and having to struggle hard to beat a very woirthy opoonent.
The balls were sub par for the unpopular senior bat restrictions.
Took all the fun out of hitting.
When are these guys going to get a clue.
Either the balls or the bats have to be good to very good
for us to enjoy ourselves.
You can\'t dumb down both of them.
And time restriction during championship play?
And 5 run limits in Major plus?
Do you wonder why you only got 2 teams
to an NSA national event?
Not anymore.
Talk to Gary Tryhorn or Fran and Dave from SSUSA
if you you\'re serious about getting teams to sign up.

Personally, I do not think there was 'seating'. Just practice games.
The sunday "championship " sched was predeterminded for that before games ever played. So seating as normally used, did not take place...
Not much in field maintance did I see either.
Another thing that wasn't consistant were the rules.
Only positive thing, for me, was playing different teams for a change. I would of liked it to had been a round robin, some how, and play each team at least once. Might of made for another day there though.

Even though there were some (well,a lot of questions - doubts) surrounding this tourney it was good to get out in the sun/wind and get to see Taits, Softballer, Einstein, a/c, and others and play ball. It's always fun to watch Gary Tryhorn hit unless you're playing against him.

The season is coming to a close way to rapidly gang.

That's one thing that makes any tournament all the better reguardless of how it was otherwise, meeting new players and seeing the one's you haven't seen in awhile, again.

A\C...who did you play for? I missed meeting you.

AC is not on this site very often so I'll take the liberty of answering for my friend. He is AC Linde and pitches for the Old A's 60 Major Plus team. Once you see him pitch, I guarantee you'll remember him. LL

I enjoyed watching Gary and Joe play.
Now I now, thanks.

Hey Einstein, it was good to chat with you again in Modesto before we paired off against each other for the THIRD time this year in a best of two out of three on Sunday.

I missed Mankato but Scrap Iron 60s has played in FIVE tournaments this year where only two Major Plus teams showed up plus one that we were the only Major Plus team, We're now looking at cutting waaay back next year and attending only those tournaments that appear to be well attended. Our players pay their own travel expenses for the most part and we see no reason to spend our money to go play one other team. I know I'm voicing the same concerns that others have but it's become ridiculous this year. Even if the different associations combined Major and Major Plus I'm not sure we'd see many more teams at a number of these tournaments.
