York SSWC Tournament
Hi! Just looking to get some feedback on the

York SSWC Qualifier Torunament this past weekend.

I was very disappointed that Sunday's games were

cancelled. I have played in York many times in the

past when there was rain the night before and the

fields were made playable the next day. I understand

it is what it is, but.... Anyway just thought I'd get some

other comments on this subject.

I agree, they games could have been pushed back.
The majors 50 was scheduled to finish at 3, push the start time back two hours and we still have plenty of light.

And the Sat. Midnight hotel putting contest brought out a couple of young ladies in their baby-dolls to umpire for us...I like York! Friendly place.

i was at the york qualifier. the ground crew worked on fields after it rained fri night. they did a nice job. rains came sat. night. guess no one called them. city of york workers could have fixed the fields. no one must have checked our field as it was playable with a little work in 1 hour. umpire crew did good job.. thanks.

We stayed at the Yorktowne Hotel. The rooms were great, the staff fantastic. We were a 5 minute walk to some lively bars and fine restaurants. The fields were a 2 minute drive away. Great complex. I can't speak about the other divisions but the 50 AAA, a competitive field. Sounds like the makings of a remarkable tournament. And it was memorable. To cancel the games (we found out at 6:30 Sunday morning) without making an attempt to make the fields playable is sinful. When the directors don't have plans in place to deal with rain in the Northeast in spring, well it's hard support, hard to justify returning to those tournaments.

hey curt well said! i was just about at the York fields when I got that call at about 6:30 AM. I was told the the City of York would not allow them to work on the fields because it was a Sunday? That seemed like a lame excuse to me.

All the area Sunday League's played their games, no kind on $$ refund was offered either, I doubt if we will be back
in the fall for their season ending tourney unless some kind
of concessions are made.
