  • Cooperstown Review
  • Tokyo bound
  • 4th Annual Champions League
  • Scott’s fearless postseason forecast

Dear Players,

Just got back from a great trip to Cooperstown (the trailer is still up there) from an event we need to publicize and promote more for next year. We had 11 father/son combos this trip that added a refreshing experience to the overall event.

After losing most of the day Saturday at Damaschke Field in Oneonta because of rain, we loaded up the schedule and got the games in on a glorious day on Sunday. The Cardinals led by Bill Steele and Kevin Savoia with their boys led that team to a hard fought victory over the Diamondbacks led by good friend John Sfakis…..

We are going to promote this event as a national father/son tournament. The tentative dates for next year are Sept. 11-13. In addition to the great ball that was played, we really enjoyed having the Hall of Fame to ourselves after hours on Friday night. I think we’ll make that a regular addition to the program.

So, if you are a father who has a child 14 years of age or older and would like a great baseball experience, think about next year’s event. We will be opening the registration page for that later this week. We feel we could get 10 or more teams for next year’s tournament.

As many of you know our annual trip to Japan is next week, and yours truly will be heading to San Diego (for the first time) and then to Japan with good friend Mark Bauer on Sunday. We have a full group which will be led by great friend John Baessler. I am really looking forward to it. You’ll have all the details on my arrival home, check facebook, Instagram for updates, pictures etc.

After a week or 2 off, we head down to New Orleans for our 4th Annual Champions League Series….The defending champions the Southland Hogs will be getting their rings prior to their first game on Zephyr Field. We should have 6-8 teams vying for a chance to call themselves the Champions of the best baseball we offer at any venue.

There is still time to sign up as a single pool player, small group or team…go to our website for all the info.

Oh yeah. Fearless prediction……here’s one….Cards vs. Angels in the World Series…Albert comes back to beat the Cards…..

Well, gotta unpack from Cooperstown and pack for Japan….speak to you soon….

Check out all of our upcoming events on our website.
