We are using the baseball diamond, because I have to,to get this in on 1 day, as every diamond is maxed. The baseball diamond is Diamond 7.
Have your team ready 15 minutes for every game scheduled except for the 1st slot- or could be subject to a forfeit.
There will be 2 stations:
If your team starts on diamonds 1-4, have your bat checked up in the front office by diamonds 1-3.
If your team starts on diamonds 5-8, Lacy will be under the pavillion testing there.
1 bat per player. Please adhere to that as we have hundreds to test.
It is the players responsibility to provide my tester with a legal usssa bat- no 220's/etc.
Also your responsibility to keep the sticker on the bat.
The penalty for no sticker or non approved bat is- An out and bat rechecked if legal.
All failed bats can be retrieved from the office after you have been eliminated.
After 2.00 Pm you can test any bat you want for a 3.00 fee-cash- we will keep it if it fails.
It has came to my attention that there has been some sticker switching shenanigan's going on. We may do some spot checking during the day, if spot check you bat and something weird tests out, the player or the team could face elimination.We can spot check a bat at anytime a player enters the box.
The bats for the final 1 or 2 games, will be re-tested for men's D and E.
All players must be online and in eligible status to be legal.
Rosters will lock Friday at noon. I will not add players at the tournament site, unless somehow I made a mistake.
I can only add Indiana players, if you are out state, have to get with your state director.
If you are paying the entry, I will be in the front office. All coaches will have to come in the office to pay before your 1st game. Cash (in an envelope with your team name.
