TC could you elaborate for the guys who haven't attended.
My rule of thumb is to be careful and thouroughly research what you get yourself and wallet into.
All of the tourneys we went to were tourneys made up of regular teams and some sponsered teams (Team Mizuno...etc.) several were college freshman summer ball squads...the competition was top flight. Many were stepping stone tourney's which were qualifiers for the Nationals. World Wood Bat Association tourneys run on parallel lines.
I do agree that some of the stuff is single minded (Get as many singles out of mom and dads wallet as could be gathered :shock: ), specifically so called prospect "Showcases", where you get to drop $500 for the privelege of working out "as a pro" for an afternoon and they do games the next day :roll: .
