We played all season Wednesday through Friday. Guys on my team have planned around that all year and work around that schedule as well. Yeah some bartend, some work other jobs too. Either way that is irrelevant.
This has nothing to do with fair. I always have no problem working with other coaches to accommodate schedules for whatever reason. In this case it puts us at a needless disadvantage and I need to advocate for my team first and foremost. Playing games Monday and Tuesday missing 4 starters, including my only pitcher would just be stupid. Sorry your guy is having surgery, which is why I suggested to Mickey to play 3 games Wednesday to help get him as many games in as possible, rather than the 2-2-1 schedule that was initially scheduled.
Also, the field isn't available Tuesday for games due to the umpires banquet as it is.
