Re: Memorial Day 1-Pitch 2018 Tournament Teams / Consensus

While I agree that non-quantifiable factors like day-of-tourney player readiness, team chemistry and resilience, and luck (especially in a one-day tourney) will all play big roles, I nevertheless find this quite interesting. I'd be curious to know the breakdown if you looked at average career team s...

Re: Wednesday Evening Coed / Spring 2018

Glad that you're looking at the positive side of this, Les. I believe this is the 5th version of the schedule, so I imagine you're pretty tired of looking at it by now. The elimination of the Saturday game does benefit me, as mine happened to conflict with my one of my 5-year old's T-Ball games, whe...

The overnight weather for Chalfont through Saturday night doesn't look as good. More snow?!

Re: Opening Day

Any chance that the overnight weather forecast for Chalfont is an April Fool's joke? 4 inches of snow?

Re: Opening Day

As a silver lining, the one-week delay to Opening Day will not cause the Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday leagues to finish any later than they would have in the previous version of the schedule. That is, if Hatfield really is ready to go on April 16th.

Re: U Make The Call

1. B – I would call that smart base-running. I liken it to the situation where there is a runner on 2B and the SS fields a ground ball.
