    As a die hard Fastball guy there seems to be another divide now. You can’t just play Fastball but you have t be good. Most tournaments are very high caliber and Rec teams or regular city leagues barely exist. With out good pitching you can’t even enter a team in a league or tournament. It is a better game than baseball, better for TV, the fans and easier on the arms for pitchers. Without Recreational leagues the game gets smaller every year. I can’t even get enough for a team to play in a tournament.

    Here in L.A. county there are still some fastpitch leagues, you got Tuesday nights at Whittier Narrows, Wednesday nights at Burbank & at Artesia park (both include some of the area’s top players), and Sunday mornings at Pico Park in Pico Rivera. Not what it used to be but were hanging on.

    I agree with everything Sean Tracy said above.

    I used to play in MN, may dad pitched AA-major in the 70’s. A few years ago I moved to NE and have contacted everyone and anyone who could potentially know anything about men’s fastpitch in the Omaha area. No information. Omaha brings in a high-level NAFA tournament yearly, but the people who set up the tournament have not responded to my emails or phone calls asking about lower-level fastpitch leagues. Honestly, because I’m a few years removed from the game, I can’t step in and play AA, but it’s frustrating nonetheless. What fastpitch really needs is a quality website that is actually updated on a regular basis. This goes for ISC, NAFA, and ASA.

    Sorry for venting. But, I appreciate you continuing to provide an outlet!
