feilds and umpireing
Regards to the reno tournament, its was nice to see such beautiful feilds in the new complex too bad the lower division never got to see them in stead they seen infeild that were dust storms at best and umpireing that that was terrible. They should have qualified umpires these teams pay alot of money and i have never seen so many blown calls in my life. Seems to me they wanted to get the games over as soon as possible i know we only playe one seven inning game. Why do they call it the reno tournament when you play 35 miles away from reno in carson city. and if you want to watch teams play you have another 45 min. drive to get to the feilds. Umpires need more training but its a tough job. Otherwise the tournament was fun while it lasted.

Umpiring is a tough job, but it needs to be taken seriouly, because it is a job. If each of us made the mistakes that are made out there in our day to day jobs, many of us would not be working. I would just ask that the umpires do not try to strike up confersations with the cathcher/batters, while we are trying to play ball. We are not there to make friends with them, we have a game going on. I agree about the fields being so far apart. Some of us have partners/friends playing in the same tourney and we would like to be able to see them play.

By far the best umpire around the area was at last night senior league, This guys takes control of the game instead of the game controlling him. You can look at his mechanics and the hustle, and see the drive to give you the best job he can do. Maybe he should be the umpire and chief for senior softball because he leads by example. He know who i am and i am proud to say good job you earn your pay.
