Regionalized softball failed many, many years a go! Thats why the conference was started to begin with, and before you start it was just to have teams for the ped boys to beat up on, save that s**t cause A & B tourneys wouldn't even make at that time. Hell, regionalized softball inside of states can't even survive in E&D anymore. Our director told me 3 years a go that my team was the only team from the whole state that was 100% local (everyone from same county & 2 within 30 miles). The #s are just not there, its not 1995. I wish it was, but its not. And I don't blame the #s on "the powers up above", i just think its a thing of the past.
I know your going to do your typical "this is why the #s dwindled down crap", but save it csuse we've read it 1000's of times. Ppl just don't want to give up most of their weekends to play softball, spending a small fortune, all summer long. Just got other stuff they want to do.
