REMINDER PRACTICE TONIGHT
Reminder we have practice tonight at Kobak 3 at 5:30
Ohio State Nations Championship - Select Division pairings
I received some feedback from the tournament director for Bowling Green. In the Select division there are 42 teams registered. Pool play games are Thursday and Friday only. Following Friday's games they will set up the weekend games. There are 14 different Pool's of 3 teams each, our Pool is with the Bedford (MI) Blast & Aces Elite Red. Unfortunately we weren't able to draw a pool with Massillon or Wadsworth, but we'll have to play it as we're scheduled.
For Saturday they will take 14 teams (winner of each pool) and 10 Wildcard teams based on record and Runs Scored/Runs Allowed like most tournaments. So a total of 24 teams ONLY will play Saturday, the remaining 18 will not advance to the weekend. There are teams like us and there are some like Aces Elite Red that should be in the Open division but are not, so it was strictly luck of the draw for our Pool play games. We don't know much about Linedrive Hurricanes or Bedford Blast other than they play in a Northwest Ohio 11U league, so we don't know much about their level of play.
We do need to be at the field by 7:30am on Thursday morning. I don't know how many of you booked Wednesday night, but if you didn't, leave yourself plenty of time if your heading out that morning. Plan on a 2 hour drive. Unfortunately we can't make any guarantee about Saturday, so it will be your call on the rooms for Friday and Saturday nights. I do know the Fairfield needs 24 hour notice prior to check-in to cancel a room night.
We can do something together with the kids Thursday evening since we have a little later start Friday. The Mud Hens are in town in Toledo if we want to head up there, it's about a 20 min drive up 75, or we can find something else.
See everyone tomorrow.
