Men's Fall Classic 1-Pitch Tournament 2021

Post by sixofdiamonds » Mon Sep 06, 2021 8:10 am

Date: Saturday, September 25, 2021
Rain Date: October 2, 2021
1st Game: 9:00 am (all games to be played at the Eureka Quarry ball field)

Entry Fee: $300.00* per team (based on 8 teams) 2 games guaranteed

1st Place: $800.00
2nd Place: $200.00

*The $300 cash team entry fee must be remitted to the league on or before September 19th. You can give it to me or Nancy Razzi at the Quarry ball field. Be sure to get a cash receipt.

Each batter receives 1 pitch. If the pitch is fouled off, swung at and missed or hits the mat or plate, the batter is struck out. If the pitch is a ball, the batter walks. Fair batted balls are played in normal fashion. The pace of play is fast. The games are quick. It's a lot of fun for sure.

This is a great opportunity to make a name for yourself in the SBA community and earn some cash prize money for the team. Use the money for team shirts or a team celebration at your favorite watering hole. You can enter an existing SBA league team. You can enter a partial SBA league team and cherry pick players from other teams to join up with you. Or, you can build a team from scratch with any combination of players from any combination of teams. The only requirements are listed below.

Roster Requirements: Each team must have in their line-up at all times no less than 6 registered Softball America league members. Registered SBA league member refers to any player that has paid a league fee in 2021. This is an insurance requirement. Tournament teams need not be the same as regular season teams. Tournament teams can be a combination of 2 or more teams. The 6 registered SBA members on a tournament team can be from 6 different teams. As long as you have these 6 current SBA members, you can fill in with whomever you like.

Teams
Philly Junk - Mgr. Tom Rider
King's Corner - Mgr. Matt Schaub
Doom Cats - Bryan Peterman
Birdgang - Mgr. Jason McLaughlin
TBD - Ben Razzi
Electric Hillbillies - Phil Black
Sex Panther - Keith Hass

Yes, there will be some good teams entered, but they aren't THAT good. The 1-pitch format is the great equalizer. There is limited space. We will max out at 8 teams. Email the league office ASAP if you are interested.

Managers,

With your team registration email, kindly include a 3-digit number. This number will be used in a lottery to determine team numbers and first round match-ups. I don't have a lot of time to put this tourney together. Not more than 8 teams will be accepted. Not less than 6 teams will be required. If at least 6 teams do not register in the next 7 days, the tournament will be scrubbed for the following reason.

I have been working with numerous lighting companies in an attempt to replace the current 40-year-old metal halide ball field fixtures with brand new LED lighting. At least one full Saturday will be needed for installation. With the men's tourney slated for 9/25 and the eddie tourney on 10/9, there are precious few Saturdays for me to pull this off. Knowing if there is enough interest in the men's tournament for the 25th will go a long way in helping me plan things out to make this happen this year.

Each manager has sent in a 3-digit number which will be used in a lottery to determine tournament team numbers via the PA Pick 3 Lottery on September 13th (evening draw). https://www.palottery.state.pa.us/Draw- ... ICK-3.aspx

The managing tandem with the 3-digit number that is closest to the PA Pick 3 number (plus/minus) will be Team #1. Using each of the remaining manager tandem's 3-digit numbers, we will move in ascending order from the winning number to determine the balance of the team numbers. 000 will follow 999.

Philly Junk - 292
King's Corner - 619
Doom Cats - 357
Birdgang - 717
The Swingers - 316
Electric Hillbillies - 815
Sex Panther - 645

PA Pick 3 Lottery, September 13th evening draw: 471
Closest to that number (plus/minus): Team 1: Doom Cats

Moving in ascending order, the rest of the team number assignments are as follows:

Team 2: Kings Corner
Team 3: Sex Panther
Team 4: Birdgang
Team 5: Electric Hillbillies
Team 6: Philly Junk
Team 7: The Swingers


There you have it. Team #1 will face off vs. Team #2 at 9:00 am on game day.

Scorekeepers are needed for the upcoming men's 1-pitch tournament. $10/game is being offered. Nancy said she will do a few games. If you or someone you know can keep score for a few or all of the games, please let me know ASAP.
