KC Baron's lost 19-17 to Team Arkansas at 9:30 Sunday morning. Winning run was at the plate with 2 outs in the 7th and one of our power guys hit one about 349' and we needed 350'. It was a very good game. Team Arkansas won and got to play Windy City for the title when we left. We played 5 games and 4 of them were on fields that were 330' down the lines and 360-375' in center. I do not understand why a "world" tournament is played on a coverted baseball to softball field. I could see 310' or maybe even 325' but this was really, really tough on our outfielders and I am sure it was for other teams outfielders too. Were there no complexes with 300' fences available for this tournament to be played in this part of the country? I can't believe any 50 major team or 55 major team is thrilled about finding out when they show up the games are not on 300' fences.
Maybe the 50 major+ and 55 major+ are used to games on these types of fields.
Please ISA/SSUSA think about KC/Mid-America next year for this event, a 10 diamond complex all in the same park, 300 ft fences with ag-lime fields. Takes water really well and the complex has an upstairs air conditioned sports bar for time in between games. I know it can get really hot in KC in late July/early August but I think it would be worth ISA's time to look into KC next year.

We played at Triple Creek and I think the fields had 300'or so fences (since I'm a singles guy I don't worry too much about that) and I was amazed we even played at all Fri but they did a great job getting the fields ready. The umps were great overall and the competition was keen. We won our division but had we not I still would have been glad I came. I agree with "PAR" about moving the Tourney to KC. No disrespect to Gallatin. Triple Creek was nice but needed more shade (didn't play at Muni). But the people of Gallatin were really nice and great looking Southern ladies!!!

Par, If you and I would have remembered how to use our bats we wouldn't have needed that 1 foot!!!!
