This comment right here is exactly why softball in Indiana has gone to complete crap. This is how the large majority of softball players Indiana look at the game and its flat out SAD! |
"Pay money out of pocket to play teams that are a higher sanction? Doesn’t make sense to pay to lose."
What do think teams like Streetkids, Floors, Moose, Westpoint and many others have done for years? They paid a ridiculous amount of money to go play in a USSSA conference tournaments every year, knowing they would most likely get beat. But guess what every player on each of those teams knew with each game they played in conference? That playing against the best does nothing but make you and your team better. Seems to have worked out to be very true with what Westpoint and Toon squad both did this year in Florida huh? Playing against better competition all year long only helps teams when they get to Florida.
Nothing but congratulations should be getting thrown at the players on both teams, yet we have petty entitled idiots acting like 10 year olds trying to take away from what these teams have done. Guess what? Nobody cares and anybody who respects the game enough and calls Indiana home will be congratulating these teams and nothing else.
Pay money out of pocket to play teams that are a higher sanction? Doesn’t make sense to pay to lose.
Then you clearly dont play coed, they complained about every combined tournament and threatened to drop out if they had to play certain teams. Why do you think coed was rarely combined after the first month? I guess coed doesnt matter, when you have the same team winning EVERY “lower” tournament all year and never forced to move up like in Mens. That shit wouldnt fly and everyone knows it lol
Upper all year apparently helped them out! Something to be said for that argument!
I never heard them complain. They played beat and some upper teams with no problem. They are a true lower team, just sucks that there wasn’t any lower competition so they had to play upper.
They b###h and moan all year when they had to play “upper” coed teams all year. Cant wait for that to not matter next year!! This is by far the hardest coed team to actually want to succeed with how hard they sandbag and Capps constant complaining
Very awesome to see two Indiana teams winning worlds this year! Nothing harder than winning in Florida! Congrats Toon Squad on the undefeated run.
Congrats to Toon Squad winning mixed E worlds!
