I'm of the opinion that we should attempt to field the best team we can from our regular attendees. I know it sucks to be snubbed, but I don't think "first come, first serve" (which is the impression that I (possibly mistakenly) got) is the best way to go about putting this team together.

While I totally would love for everyone to show up and even to have an 18-20 player team, I think we should definately give preference to our more... competitive players. With that being said, I don't see any reason why we wouldn't be able to get 12-15 people into the game for at least an inning or two.

Also, what time are we expected to get to Curt Flood? I think 11-11:30 (1.5-2 hours early) would give us plenty of time to stretch out, take fielding practice, work out our lineup, etc.

I am so excited about this game!!!
Anyway... I just want to see these things cleared up so everyone is on the same page.

Cheers!

Hey, I'm not really willing to tell people they can't play. I got some very negative reactions last time I tried to do that. The best players should just be informed to make sure they show up early. I agree with the time you mentioned. Also, I don't want there to be too many players because then you will get very few at-bats. So help me spread the word to the best players.

after struggling with the system for a few minutes I took a look at the recent boxscores and it seems we only have about a dozen regulars anyway.

Do we agree that priority should be given to these players over first timers or... say... Mario Hernandez?

Assuming my flight doesn't get canceled, I'll be back in town for this, which is cool -- I thought I would miss it.

From my point of view, for the sake of competition, I'm willing to concede a starting spot to someone who's displayed more baseball skills than I have. I know not everyone would feel that way, but I don't really care. Though it would be fun to come in as a LOOGY or something. Especially since I'd like to try out pitching with movement allowed.
