Question

OK Gals/Guys,

Got a call to do a RBI World Series.....What the hell is
it....It is softball, I know that.....We are using ASA
rules, just can't get the handle on what organization it
is. I know we have out of state teams coming in, so must
not be high school, since all schools have started in most
areas as well as here.

Tournament starts Sunday and runs through Thursday.

Why didn't you ask when you got the call?

I did an RBI baseball game a couple of years ago. Teams from several states. I believe that the top whatever teams advanced to the next level in Orlando. (I remember that fewest runs given up was a big deal.) The kids were going to get to stay at Disney World, so they were quite excited.

I think the RBI is supposed to be for city kids. However, there were some suburban teams in the tournament, so they were careful to call themselves by the name of the city nearest them. Before my game, the tournament director asked us to ignore whatever name was on the shirts and refer to the teams by their "city" name.

I was paid by the Trenton Thunder, the minor league baseball club.

Bob,

You know when you get our age you can't think of every
thing.
