It is exactly in the correct forum. Anything that promotes communication among
softball people is a good thing. ASA softball is the best in the state of
california. Communication from ASA to the teams and coaches is terrible. At
western nationals I had the UIC just walk in my dugout and start checking our
bats in the middle of the game. He yanked one and said this is illegal. At no
time during this initial inspection was I told the exact reason why it was
illegal.

Rumors were running rampant all over the tournaments, and online about which
bats were leagal and illegal(specifically the worth 3dx and the fp vs sp model)
Im sure persons affiliated with ASA knew about this and nothing was said. If
asa would just take a little more time to get info out to the teams and coaches
about the issues that directly concern our teams, we would all be much more
happy. My team plays ASA tournaments because of some of the fine people that
run our tournaments, but the most important reason we play ASA is because of
the quality of teams in ASA tournaments.

This forum is where most of us come to get an answer about certain issues. It
is too bad that we get quicker responses here, than we do from the people who
actually run asa.

we are not ASA's enemy. WE comprise asa, we make ASA what it is, not the other
way around. This should be a partnership in hopes of making asa softball the
best it can be. Too often we get the responses as we did here, that this stuff
doesnt concern us. IMO, just about everything ASA concerns my team.
no need to keep info from getting out.

Why would it be a conflict of interest if the interest is providing
opportunities for the girls?  They can choose to use one or both
services.  If doing so increases their prospects, that's great.  What
am I missing?

Frank,

I misunderstood an earlier post and recanted.  In turn, I would like you to do
me a favor.  As you can see by other posts, many others don't understand a
difference here, but it is only right that you reference the proper
organization.

This issue has NOTHING to do with ASA.  Your issue is with SoCal ASA and as you
probably know, there is a world of difference when dealing at the state/metro
level.  There are too many folks, especially in SoCal (due to size) which
cannot or will not recognize the difference.

Thanks,

Mike
