1) They will host tournies at BLD Manteca and have a cap on E teams/spots to 20 where they will limit C-Open to 6-8?
2) I shared that that all divisions should hold the same cap, and if that SANDBAGGING E Team can't get in, they can go play in the D or Open. From there, a director can observe such teams playing outside their class and possibly "bump them"
3) The "cash cow" is E and everyone wants to play it, and win. I've heard how some of the E teams/players are trying to get re classed.
4) A national sport should have National Leadership overseeing what the other states are doing and with classification. Amazes me how a lot of players will have a E tag, and able to compete and play C or Higher. When Bama was playing E, the directors were blind; they could not see that he was a TALENT and should be ranked at the C level? THat's what I mean at the top.
We can complain out WEst that we have no upper program, but when the directors are allowing sandbagging and not ranking players/teams to play where they belong is sad. I thought it was great Strojan was out in Cali for some of our tournies, but he should have conversation and lead; if they want utrip to be the BEST?
Lastly, I hate hearing the lamest excuse around in Cali, that guys are new to the game and should learn to play at the E level..wtfff???? I guy just finished hitting 80mph fast balls but needs time to adjust to the 22mph, underhand floater? They fielded baseballs with grace, caught balls like a great white attacking a seal, but they need years of PREP in E?!??! your kidding?
The players will play, so have some kahones/integrity for the true E players that get beat up, or hurt by guys playing in the wrong class.
