I guess we would have to assume that teams & sponsors feel things are worth reevaluating with their relationship with USSSA.
Could another association make any head way against USSSA at the B & Above levels, normally I would say no, but if the Dedonatis family is behind it (all speculation at this point)- yes, sponsors would start to gravitate to them.
What would teams have to gain by staying with UTrip or leaving. Yes, it would have to be an either or decision, very few would be able to afford or play in both associations.
We'll see how things shake up.
