HOW you screw that call up was beyond me... it should never have required that they get together and fixed it. When you have a guy standing right there (3 man crew) why would you let an umpire 70 feet from the play over rule you? Thank god he didn't... I mean Joe you saw it... he overruled the call in the field.. and was he not absolutely the WORST at balls and strikes? I mean that first strike call on me.. it almost hit my back foot for Christs sake.
As for scorekeeping it wasn't bad, but when we played Tharaldson on the stadium the umpire had to keep getting the score from us, because they weren't keeping up. That was what I refer to by book keeping. Honestly I have no idea of the averages they have or even where I'd go to see the results....I would assume on Gamechanger but I have no idea.
The water situation was awful... I was routinely dropping $40 a game for water for the team...
FYI - I in no way believe you guys sandbagged... I mean I saw Major players on B teams ... I saw players from Dan Smith and other Major teams on B teams... or full A teams with unaltered USSSA rosters playing B, that's where I think Sandbagging. You guys might have had a few bumps but you didn't have anything compared to some of what I saw... For the record, I don't care. I'll play against whoever is in front of me any day.
I wanted those kids I took with me to get some exposure and experience, and the B is FAR cheaper than trying to have a B Conference Team.
Call me, and maybe we can throw together some senior All Star/Vivid stuff this year... AWS is in Vegas in December...
