Ok everyone has their game times we have 18 teams just a reminder
Filed 1 will be the key west field and the main field
Field 2 will be on the navy base if your scheduled to play on field 2 please show up to filed 1 at least 30 min before game time and a trolly will pick you up and take you on to the navy base and will also bring you back after the game good luck to all teams .....
This is the biggest turn out yet

Bobby isn't going to risk his annual turnout of local Key West teams and South FL D/E teams by allowing improper players.

True on the hit-my-stick and great charity but on the other side of the coin people are spending a lot of money to come participate and it should be as close to an even playing field as possible. 

 

Virtually every leisure sport/activity has different levels of play.  I believe slow pitch softball struggles start from the top down and when active B/C players play in D tournaments that leads to D teams/players playing in E which then pushes out 90% of newly formed teams.  This isn't the old days where tournaments cost $150 and if you got waxed it was a $20 per guy investment for a day of playing and socializing.  New teams get tired quickly of spending $350-450 dollars in tourney fees, association fees, and softballs to not be competitive.  This is why there are supposed to be levels of play.

 

There's a reason the Georgia State and FAMU college football teams of the world get paid $1M+ to get slaughtered by Top 25 teams.  Now imagine what would happen if those teams had to PAY $1M+ to play the big boys and get slaughtered?   Those matchups would end very quickly.  For some reason that logic would be considered crying in softball.  We played a lot of games against Hit Em Hard over the years and a lot of them were pretty competitive but I can tell you that the 6-7 times we played you and you had Joey we never won one of those games.  One (or more) elite talents can make a HUGE difference.

 

As for this specific tourney, as you know there are several local teams that play and contribute annually to this tournament, and getting blasted by guys that play conference or play for money every weekend certainly isn't going to improve participation in Bobby's tournament nor the sport in general.

I shouldn't even respond to any off this but I will just to make whoever is complaining happy....the guy you all are complaining about has played with the same team in this tourney for 5 years they have had the same roster for 5 years now how many times have they won zero they are a bunch of guys who come a week before the tourney and have fun .....maybe I should check harder on the e/d teams cause they are the ones that win every year this isn't about the screwed up softball world it's about raising money for a good causes and letting people play in the 5 years Ive run this toureny never have I had some say that team was to stong you messed up ....so please go cry somewhere else

I completely agree with everything that you are saying but teams these days are not where they belong and that's your team included. Well now it is because you guys are a D team. Every single team has players on their team that has played C or higher at one point in their career or not. The problem is that everyone can't continue to play up because of the traveling and being away from family so much gets a bit overwhelming and let's face it the wives end up getting their way at some point. But why is it that coaches get so worried about the money they spend to get waxed by one elite player when they have an elite player themselves on their team.

The best quote I've ever read on florida softball is from Scott Devlin "playboy" when he said DONT BE MAD BECAUSE MY FRIENDS ARE BETTER THAN YOURS" those teams that come out and get waxed and our mad that they don't have a C player look in the mirror and say wait I have hmm in your case Josh the lefty "a former teammate and C player LAST YEAR that can flat out hit"

The tournament reads e/d combo with one drop.

This is an argument that is never ending and the posts every year are all the same thing with different team names. If the teams bitching would quit crying in the dugout and just play ball maybe they wouldn't get waxed and actually compete.

To be very clear ....

I was not the one "crying" and posted several times that Bobby has always run a fair tournament, hit my stick is great, and it is for a great cause.

I didn't post anything about any specific player or team as I was simply pointing out that just as annoying as many people think "crying" about rosters in softball is .... there are just as many people on the other side of the coin that are tired of upper players infiltrating the lower divisions.

 

Don't want to clog up Bobby's post any longer so safe travels to everyone and best of luck to all the teams participating.

Are we really complaining about a Charity softball tourney? Unbelievable, who cares who plays lets have fun, enjoy playing the sport we all love and quit complaining. Donnie and that team has been playing in this from Day 1, its 1 or 2 guys on a team, that doesnt change the whole team in my opinion, 2 guys arent gonna beat a great D team anyways....if ppl are so worried about whos at a Charity tourney, dont come!!

Reading comprehension is not a strong suit of some people on this board.
