So D team was playing an A team.
D team lost a few players and picked up a few players from teams that played in the same tournament and likely lost out?
Sorry to be an ass, but this was not just a weekend festival it was a USSSA Conference Major. So just adding players (E or not) is against the rules. It's black and white too, there is no grey area unless Hutch was talked to prior and approved it.
I can understand the injury issue, but the gender reveal was likely well planned prior so the Moneyball team should have added additional players knowing this.
So, again, what is the real issue here?
