Has there ever been another time where a major team lost a key player for the remainder of the tourney because he was kicked out of an entire tourney?
Long Haul and JD , in my mind, walked because they believed they were getting picked on while Resmondo and others were using similar “bat technology” and getting away with it while they had a player kicked out so in their mind DD3 and Andy had a better chance to win The World Series.
Again… I was not there.. I just heard second and third hand things.. but it all seems to line up.
Especially when I heard Dan Smith was considering following JD out the gate after JD and his team decided to leave because their player was told he couldn’t play any longer.
