Older facility but fields were in decent condition. No water in dugouts, finally put one cooler per field at the scorer's platform. One ump even in championship game but from what I saw , most were pretty good. Hopefully more teams next year.

50 Div: Columbus 55's were 3rd & Dixie 4th.

One Major problem was the oval type cage. At first I loved it; seems the concept is to keep the balls from projecting into the crowds.

One foul ball was chipped up into the air adjacent to the vertical fence that attaches to the oval fence; I run over to catch it looking up for the ball & barely missed (by millimeters) catching the oval bar with my head. I would have needed a CR at my next at bat..........OH, I ALWAYS NEED A CR!!!!!

Cage was a little crowded with ump, catcher & batter; needed about 4 more feet.

I agree that the one ump did a good job considering they had to keep score, keep up with CRs & etc.


BTW: DT put on a show; I complimented them about our thrashing..........every guy hit hard & was consistent.

The no water in the dugout issue is one that the TD might want to change if they plan on growing this tournament. When our coach asked is there was going to be any water in the dugout, he was told that they sold water and Gatorade at the concession stand. In this heat, the players need to keep hydrated. It's a safety issue. It's not practical for the players to run to the centrally located water cooler by the concession stand while they are playing.

Other than the lack of water issue, it was a fun and competitive tournament.
