(Site note 6/26 10:50am - I am leaning more toward the eteamz site.  It is just a much better presentation.  I will maintain both sites but the eteamz site will be the dominant site.  Sorry for the back and forth but sometimes the grass isn't always greener.)

Thank you for coming to our site.  I will be trying - trying to update both sites for this year.  BEST OF LUCK TO ALL THE TEAMS THIS UPCOMING TOURNAMENT SEASON. 

 OPENING DAY (6/25 @ 7:25am):  a couple of reminders - ALL PROTESTS must be made before the next pitch.  You're right to protest an application of a playing rule ceases after the next pitch.  If you wish to protest, ask the umpire and head table for a ruling.  If you still disagree, have the head table call me.  I can not take a protest from a parent or coach.  Also, use the pre-game conference with the umpire crew to assess how certain rules like "foot in the box" are going to be addressed.  As Schoolhouse Rock taught me e wet Saturday morning during the 70's, "Knowledge is Power".

MESSAGE FROM THE D20 STAFF (6/24 @ 8:28am):  It's a game.  Plain and simple.  We participate because we love it.  It stirs something in us that even veterans have a hard time articulating.  Even when we feel worn down and exhausted by its demands, we some how find ourselves returning to do it again...and...again.  The same holds true for our young players. 

They have been playing baseball several times a week for several months now.  Then, we increase the workload and make it an almost every day part of their lives.  As we progress into the games, the pressure and scrutiny grows and becomes more intense.  The weight on their little shoulders grows heavier.  There will be tears, celebration, frustration, and elation.  Even as young as they are, they are not invincible.

Our role as adults is to make this a fun experience - feed that passion for the game.  Look, only a few teams are going to walk away with a championship, but if we emphasis the journey as opposed to the result, we will accomplish so much.  It's true - very few people remember "second place", but you know what these kids don't forget if given the opportunity?  The people that made it a miserable experience.  Be positive.  Be a rock.  Just - be there.

We want to wish all the teams the best of luck this tournament season.
