Being the geek that I am back in 1996 I was really excited about the flick and really looking forward to it, but when I went to see it I left slightly disappointed. That's how I feel about this tournament. Disappointed. How could I not be as weeks ago I helped promote this event on this very site http://softballinsider.blogspot.com/2009/05/born-on-4th-of-july-tournament-news.html. I made call after call and asked player after player to play with Knockout in the tourney. We were committed and ready to go.
For weeks and especially the last several days the organizers of this now defunct event, Maja Sports llc, the people who run http://www.centralparksoftball.com, reassured me that "8 teams were confirmed for the tournament". Today the event was cancelled and the founder of Maja sports Steve "The Wizard" Jimenez suggested we play pick up games instead.
Very Wack and Inconsiderate!!!!!!
Don't get me wrong throwing these events, especially in the summer on a major holiday, is very difficult. However, Maja has now lost softball street credibility for misleading us. I'll forgive you guys and give you a mulligan, but next time get your act together, be more honest/realistic, and stop wasting peoples time. Learn from your mistakes.
