I was more just curious. The majority of the conversations we have engaged in and that are on the board are focused on tournament ball and I was wondering if you still were active in the league night ball.
Personally I think that growth (re-growth) of the sport would need to start at lower levels such as league nights. As Baseball Fan mentioned in another post, some upper players build teams for league which simply dominate and take the fun out of it for new and beginning teams/players. When Creeks was packed on league nights back in the day, or even within city leagues, they had various levels even for league. Now, these upper level teams just band together on league night against corporate teams.
For me personally, I don't have the time for league night anymore. Now its work then little league, band, you name it on weeknights. I save it for tournaments on the weekends which is a load up the whole crew in the car family event. The interesting thing when you stop and think about it though is if tournament players stop playing league nights, how do individual players entering the sport make that transition short of starting a whole team?
To me, I'd rather get my money's worth and play multiple games at a tournament, than just one game on a league night while the kids are at home with homework and weekday bedtimes. But perhaps this also hurts the growth of the sport, how many tournament players got their start by being seen on league night? Not many people are going to say hey I want to start playing slowpitch softball I think I'll go find a tournament team to join.
