Re: question for Mike Dill and other senior players???
Softball 40... Sponsorship isn't needed, that is why most West coast teams choose not to use their own money to travel for a different world championship, when all the best already play SSUSA. West coast teams play 2-3 "travel tournaments per year, which they pay for out of their own pocket. That equals 3 mini-vacations from a budgetary standpoint. Add to that, the need to take one's family on a vacation (non-softball related), and that is why some of us out west choose not to spend more of our personal money on a world championship tournament 3,000 miles away. With a sponsor, some may choose to use an extra day or two of vacation time to play, but not if it is going to take away from a family vacation.
