I am not aware of ANY USSSA Finnish World Tournament ever. And I am sure Liberty would not have bid on one, even if it did exist. It just wouldn't be a large enough draw to make it worth their while. They were a for-profit entity and relied on concession and restaurant/bar revenue. Spectators would have considered it a bad joke with the odd-ball playing field and rules. They wouldn't have stayed long enough to drop any cash there. I know I wouldn't. |
Again, that first video is NOT Liberty Park. You claim that the tree lines in the two videos are the same. They clearly are not unless you are visually impaired. There is no view from anywhere in Liberty Park on ANY of their 11 diamonds with those buildings in the background of the first video.
Also, you don't even have to look closely at the skinned areas in the first video, to see that they are totally out of whack with a conventional softball diamond. No privately-owned softball park would tear up their "bread and butter" sod for a one-off, off-the-wall, limited-participation event and then have to re-sod afterwards. And the skinned area between home plate and the dugouts is noticeably much larger than Liberty Park's. I also don't believe the height of the outfield fences are the same as Liberty's.
I have not only played perhaps 700-plus league and tournament games at Liberty Park over the years but umpired there for a while as well. I'm fairly sure I know the park a lot better than somebody who played two tournaments there.
As for Kalamazoo, I was playing in the Kiracofe USSSA Class A NIT years before there even was a AA Division. So yes, I am more than aware of it. And I don't particularly see the relevance to the question at hand.
The second video is definitely Liberty Park. I cannot believe you are serious in saying that the venue for both videos is the same. You are either trolling (most likely) or delusional.
By the way, I found your identifying a sub-Class E player in a tank top in the second video as TM60+ hilarious. Kudos on that.
One final question. Do you still have your collection of water-logged softballs you retrieved from that polluted creek with industrial contaminents that ran thru Liberty Park?
