It can happen pretty easy honestly if you arent paying attention. Comatose had a 9:30am game, there was a 8:00am game before them and it looks like it could have been a run rule game. Conference rules state something like you must be ready to go 30 mins to a hour before your game time. Just a guess since I know Leemer who runs Comatose and he wouldnt just punt on a game, but if they were taking B.P and it ran a lil long and the game in front of them got done early, if they other team Rock Run who they were supposed to play was there ready to go and Comatose wasnt there, they wouldnt wait for them being a non conference team. That would be my guess (could be wrong) and it almost happened to my team in Chicago in 2016.
That makes sense in a way, but I’d think you’d know you have to get there plenty early. I’m sure it was just an honest mistake, and it would suck to have happen to you.

“Worse than” would be correct grammar in this situation.

:)

(Also, surprised there’s not a single C tournament out there)
Mine was at least a little better 😅

There are still a few C tournaments out there. At least advertised as C and combined last minute

Leemer wasn't there. I was there but at the other park. I was told by the umpire that had that game that they waited but Comatose still only had 5 guys there. They tried telling Stro their guys were hung up at the gate, Stro walked down there and there was no back up. Conference rules are you must be ready to play 30 minutes before scheduled game time. I'd be curious what time they actually started that Resmondo/Silverbacks game that was then scheduled at 11.

Yea i know the conference had a time limit in front of games that you needed to be there, It primarily comes up on Friday nights for early games as teams usually travel on Friday so if you have plane delays or something like that. I know one year we had a couple guys driving together from Indiana to Chattanooga and were in a car accident that totaled their vehicle so they were delayed getting to the tourney, It would be interesting to hear why 5 guys from Comatose made it but not the rest.

Your grammar is worse then my kids. I am not whining about anything, I play up which is more then what you can say.

For christ sakes.. this is a forum not a college paper.

I have zero clue who you are or what team you play on. I don't care if you play up or not. Btw : we have play c state and open state b4. So once again don't cry about my team.. worry about your team

He has a point. Who are you?
I'm guessing he has played against us and didn't like it..

He said he has played up.. so maybe an "e" player playing in "d".

He has the best come backs too.. Grammer and small man syndrome , typical internet guy.. but I think I'm the nicest guy I know..

Looking at the forecast, I'm real glad Mankato is a one-day. Hopefully the temp doesn't rise too much more. Sunday is going to be real sticky. Great day to grill some steaks and watch the US Open 😉

Spending next weekend sitting outside watching my kids soccer tournament. I’m sure it’ll be super fun, and I won’t just sweat my balls off while sitting in a lawn chair.


Side note: super fun to hit like absolute piss at a tourney, then come out at league and hit it hard. Running out of swear words for that one.

We did. They didn't use Dred Scott at all for tier 2 last season. We played Friday on the main complex and all day Saturday on open fields (we lost Friday night, I think a couple winner's bracket games were on the main fields).

Tier 2 didnt use dred? Yikes i know its been a few years since i've played tier 2 but it used to be 7 homers and we often used all those up at dred. The open fields are kinda a joke, I like the firemens, but just put snow/temp fences up at the school across the street and call it a day, the game changes way too much on the open fields, having to play 4 man, dodge outfielders from the other fields, inside the park homers ect. One year we played Rip City on the open fields, they had Chris Larsen and Chris Greinert with them, they could not believe a game was being played on open fields, we had our outfielders playing on the edge of the infield on the other field across from us, our outfielder caught a ball near the other fields pitching mound....its just a different game on the open fields.

Really hoping the weather changes and there’s not a big rain delay at Spudfest tomorrow. Would be nice to get it done in a day.

Sucks that we play a team from our league in the first game. It’ll be back to back tourneys starting against them, and 4 times in 4 tourneys that we’ve played against a chunk of their team.

Nope. There was only like 15 teams in tier 2 last year so they had us at VV the entire weekend. It was fun playing at the main fields Friday night but I agree open fields are stupid as hell. IDK why they don't use Dred for all the tier 2 games Friday night and all day Saturday (even loser's bracket) and then move the final 4 games to the main fields at Valley View. I would imagine with 5 fields at Dred they could get it done without much issue.

agreed, all games could be run at dred and even finished there. I know years back Friday games and saturday through mid day were at dred, then all of a sudden late saturday and sunday games were at the open fields. One year we were 3-0 at dred, reward for that was moving to open fields, I've always liked the firemens but have despised the open fields.

I used to play play rockin rogers back in the day with my old man and brother, which was or used to be MSF, it was a complete bleep show umpire wise.
It was the same for the Rogers league the last couple years. Not just not knowing rules, but being confident and wrong. Almost worse.

We ran into that one year as well. Undefeated going into Sunday, then moved to open fields. Really don’t enjoy that, especially as an outfielder. I don’t like people hitting a ball at my back, or worrying about colliding with a guy in a different game.

Might go back to that one when I qualify for 40 and over wood bat.
