Some Schedule Changes June 3, 2019

June 3, 2019

There will be changes in July versus what you saw yesterday. All changes will be in RED. August will be "talent matching" schedule as required.

The Schedule will not be "balanced" in that every teams plays each other equally. With only 5 teams and considerable talent differences, I will schedule as fairly as I can under the circumstances.

To enjoy the season to the fullest, weaker teams are expected to get better versus strong teams. So just do it, guys.

World Series, Phoenix 2019 & Texas Cup, Houston

June 3, 2019

I will manage a 60+ Squad in Phoenix, AZ at the MSBL World Series during October 26 - November 2, 2019.

The primary purpose of this team is to allow/offer several new Rookies to our League a chance to see exactly why we play local ball. As the veterans know, we need to be competitive at the WS.I expect 40 - 50 players to tryout during the summer. Max number will be 22.

The details are: a) each player will pay his own way there and back. b) each player will house and feed himself while there for a week (or more). c) each player will need about $1,000.00 for the adventure, starting with a $250.00 deposit for entry fee. d) all are welcome to spread this info amount each other. e) more details in this space as required.

The Texas Cup, 60+, is in Houston during Labor Day weekend, August 30- September 2. I need to know how many want to go. $1,800 per team. As I understand not one of our 5 teams are going. We should get 18 or so to go from 100 of us.

Between both tournaments, each man can expect to spend $2,000.00 for high-quality serious tournament baseball.

I AM ASKING ALL WHO MIGHT BE INTERESTED IN TOURNAMENT TEAMS TO LET ME KNOW NEXT WEEKEND AT CENTRAL CATHOLIC FIELD.
