well yesterday the pathetic http://www.newyorkfastpitch.com/ played the part of Lucy and completely snatched away our softball game because sheer utter incompetence. So clueless.
Now before I fire at will, let me give you the whole story, the best of three series between Master Batters and Lawyertime "LT" was scheduled for this week - Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. We all know what happened Monday at the Great Lawn http://softballinsider.blogspot.com/2011/09/2-out-madness-for-lt-stem-cell.html . So the series shifted to Wednesday, where unfortunately, because of concerts the Great Lawn was unavailable.
to the North Meadow to play Game 2. It is my understanding that Permits are not being issued at this time of year so the league decided to play at this venue at their own risk. However, the league only called up the CP hot line to see if the fields were open, no one actually went up to the field to see if it was open.
HUGE FUCKING MORONIC MISTAKE!!!!!!!!!!!
It was open all right, for soccer, and the dreaded Red Flags were up
This is so bad and disappointing as everyone there
was cost time, money, and most importantly the joy of playing in a championship game.
So fucking disappointing and sad
This softball disaster and that is the perfect word DISASTER, only gets worse b/c we have no field to play for the rest of the week. HORRIBLE.
Umpire OJ Ruiz (not his fault) graciously was interviewed and had the following statement
The bottom line is this is the Worst organized League when it comes to playoffs. Every single year the same thing. They could have easily contacted the parks dept to see what locations were available or at least researched which venues were open.
This is not acceptable in anyway shape or form and it happens year after year.
They donate thousands of dollars to the Parks department every year and for what ???? They get fucked over and over and over and over. They might as well give the money to us, your customers, so stop acting like Charlie Brown and letting the park's department play you like Lucy for a sucker b/c ultimately it is us the players who get let down.
Don't softball tease me ever again.
