WOOD BAT TOURNAMENT STATUS
August 3rd is 5 weeks away and the deadline to reserve a spot in this Wood Bat tournament is July 16th (2 weeks) ($200 Deposit) (Special deal if paid in full by 7/16)
Terry Terrell has taken the lead to form one team from the HDL roster of players who have indicated they would like to participate. His confirmed list of players are:
|HDL Team 1 (35 & Over Div.)||AGE|
|TERRELL, TERRY (Manager)||44|
|BURNETT, PW (Pitcher)||32|
|HARRIS, NICK (Pitcher)||34|
|HIGH, KEVIN (Pitcher)||33|
|LATHAM, KEVIN (Pitcher)||39|
|McMINN, BO (Pitcher)||36|
|NILSEN, BRIAN (Catcher)||32|
|PRATT, CORY (Pitcher)||38|
|SKINNER, JAMES (Pitcher)||39|
|WADDELL, ANDREW (Pitcher)||32|
|WOLFE, JODIE (Pitcher)||41|
Since the base fee for team entry is 13 players ($50×13=$650), Terry will be available to collect entry fee from these players. Reminder, the HDL will help with equipment but no funds from HDL are budgeted for this special event unless special sponsorship funds become available. Terry Terrell email: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone: (901) 830-9403
From an earlier list that I circulated in email, I heard from the following players who notified me they also would like to play.
|PLAYERS WHO WOULD LIKE TO PLAY||AGE|
|HILL, TRAVIS (Pitcher)||35|
|TATUM, JERRY (Catcher)||45|
|MILLER, ROBERT – Mgr. Only||51|
NOTE: ADD Ryan Hogan to the list above.
Terry Terrell’s team could use a t least 2 additional players because not all of the players on his roster will be available for all 3 guaranteed games. The second group of interested players would need to enter the 35 & Over Bracket based on age of players in this group. Additional HDL players would be needed to fill-out the minimum of 13 players. Robert Miller has offered to manage the second team, if solid commitments are still interested. Also, I see an opportunity for some additional HDL Pitchers to get a chance to help the second group. (Who is interested? Glen Coombs? Jeff Combs? Zack Legg? Mike Kunde? Mike Tollison? Paul Baioni? David Sexton? Chris Slayton?)
All interested players must submit $20 to either Terry Terrell or Robert Miller by no later than Sunday, July 8th to secure your spot in this tournament. If for any reason either of these teams fail to get a valid roster committments (13), your deposit will be refunded.

Reminder, I will be out of town during the dates for this event so I will not be available to play or assist the organization of this special tournament.
There is always the possibility that some of the out-of-town teams will arrive short-handed and will be looking to add some local players. So this might be an option if HDL only has one team and left with excess players wanting to play in the tournament. I will check with Tournament Director about this option.
