Re: Comp League @ Midwest
Everybody thinks they're entitled to something. You think because you do what you want to do you deserve to be looked at like you're giving to charity. Don't act like you playing has anything to do with giving. The park has to make money off of you just like everybody else. And softball is dying a slow death because of the barriers of entry. Guys that take BP 4 days a week all winter then come play E. How is a weekend warrior supposed to come play in that. They're out by noon. That isn't fun. Run a small tournament and those same guys that eat sleep and breathe it show up with a lineup full of studs and ruin it for everybody. The most hardcore softball players are the ones ruining softball. It's a full on Catch 22.
: We donít spend more than the league players.
: Tournament players have sponsors so you
: canít say you are spending the money when
: you arenít. You do spend more on equipment
: then the league player but thatís really all
: you can claim. The parks donít get any of
: the money that is paid for tournaments. The
: sponsor pays that money to Foltz and he
: rents the facility. And you arenít going to
: the same park week end and week out so why
: should the parks give you a discount? The
: truth is that slow pitch softball is dying a
: slow death. Less and less people are playing
: and even finding sponsors is getting harder.
: Enjoy it while you can cause it isnít going
: to last much longer.
