Re: Will there be a Softball league near you in 5 years?
I will be putting a team back in the Conference next year. It was a rough year as I expected it to be. Most of the guys were local guys that have played D/E ball mostly with a little C experience. We always had very good lower teams and played decent in Conference events that we entered. With all of us being bumped to C in our area we would have had to travel a lot to play C ball, so I decided to go Conference. The original team/idea was put together by someone else and then kinda presented to me. I did all this with a 3-5 year plan knowing we were going to take a beating the first year or 2. We will be making a few changes, but not a bunch as we started playing much better at the end of the season. We are just missing a few components and some power to compete regularly instead of sporadically like we did. The commitment level was also an issue as I had no intention of playing, yet ended up playing several tournaments. I am also putting a lower team together this year locally so I can enjoy playing ball with my son and his friends. I WILL NOT be merging with another sponsor/team unless they have a couple guys that would help us out and want to join us.
