So few A teams anymore. With technology and balls everyone should be playing up. I walk around and see tournaments with 50 to 100 home runs for outs. its unreal. PlAYERS want to hit more home runs. Dont give me the travel costs. they are jsut as high now for C teams as A was many years ago. Directors must collective move teams up but wont because everyone wants to win.. Man up and play up.
They had the B worlds in my hometown many years ago and several of local teams that played in it complained the teams from florida shouldnt have been allowed in B division. My comment to them was " so you are saying their 9 base hitters are better than yours" Only allowed 2 home run hitters back then.
Very hard to watch the game anymore because of everyone working for edge with bat tampering. I witnessed in early stages in rose city in thomasville. I wont call out the team but we had beating them many times until that weekend and eveyone on team shared 2 bats and were hitting ball 450. infielder couldnt react to ball. with all that they barely beat us 55 50.
again just my rants. collective i believe ballplayers want to play up more but sanctions like the large team pools. Look at A world was 40 teams now 8.
