Re: 95% of the Old Scout won't care about this
Local softball tournaments 25 years ago had everyone playing against everyone. Not one team dropped out because another team was gonna be there. I was on plenty of teams that got lumped up by better teams, but there were days when we beat some of those better teams. The only time what level you played was involved was for state/regional/national tournaments. You had to play state in your division and place top 3-5 to make the regional. Then place top 1 or 2 in the regional to make it to nationals.
The problem is, it seems every team is concerned about who they have to play, instead of just showing up and playing whoever is on the field.
Just my 2 cents.
