Welcome to tournament week everyone! We’re just 4 days away from our Friday night kickoff, and we wanted to get some information out so that everyone is on the same page come Friday. Without further ado, here are some notes to remember:
Friday Night: The Friday Night festivities will begin at 3 pm with the opening of the fields for practice. All Friday night schedules and info can be found on our “About” page, but I’ll cover the highlights here:
(Teams listed in this order: Field 1, Field 2, Field 3, Field 4)
|Time||Field 1||Field 2||Field 3||Field 4|
3 p.m. – Registration Opens
6 p.m. – Community Slow Pitch Tournament Championship Game
7 p.m. – Welcome Dinner
7:30 p.m. – Home Run Derby presented by D&P Communications
The Home Run Derby will be a 16 player bracket, which will be seeded via random draw. It will be the same format as last year, with one minute to hit as many home runs as possible.
8:15 p.m. – Awards Presentations
8:30 p.m. – All-Star Pre-game
The All Star Game will be 4 innings this year, with Team Phillips taking on Team Skibbe.
That’s about it for Friday, and we’ll move on to the question I’ve received the most over the last few weeks.
Stats: We had quite the battle with the existing stats system, so we have decided to use a third party site going forward. My Stats Online is a database that many leagues use, and now, it’ll be home to the NWLA Tournament. Regional stats are up now, and rosters and schedules for the National Tournament can be found there as well. CLICK HERE FOR STATS
The link will be heavily advertised so make sure you’re using the correct one. Over the winter, all stats from the old database will be transferred over and live on mystats. With that, you’re all caught up, and we’ll see you Friday!
