Yeah... last time I checked the Smallball forum was last Tuesday. Oh, well... too late.

I hope I've made it clear.

The reason why I like this tourney is that it truly takes minimal effort and time. Just be trained for the Friday challenge, and initiate 1 game on Saturday. And it's all for the pride of the league.

What time zone are we using? From the post I assume EST. This might throw off some of our planned training

but even cst makes no sens, if they are going to check timestamps of games to make sure they were played on the correct day.

oh well... I'm sure it'll all work out..

Even if CST is the case the deadline for submissions is at 11:30 CST which makes no sense why wouldn't it be 12.

PM from omni
I was talking CST time, but hopefully it will start after the time date on the pages from PST. Posting the scores has to be posted by 11:30 P.M. CST. CoC will iniate the 1st game on Friday. DTSL will iniate the 2nd game on Saturday. I'll add in the post so everyone is clear. thx good luck
And this from the tourney thread:
Ok, just make sure the time stamp has changed when starting the game. CoC will iniate the game on 12/20/02 and DTSL will iniate the game on 12/21/02 by smallball time stamp. But posting the results all have to be in by 11:30 p.m. CST.

Another PM from Omni1:

We had a 7* team as a sub, for the New who's zoo 7*. Not sure of the game number I think around 17-20. Just to let you know. Good luck.
The schedule shows New Who's Zoo playing against The Chosen (78212). Not sure if that's the updated bracket or not though...

Whoa.... I created a new team last Saturday, called "Underpaid Players."

Guess what? They're 5* already. They're 5 days old and already 5*?!

No kidding! Wow. I take a guess that you trained in 5 different skills: run, catch, throw, contact, skill.

LOL, both my teams are a month old, and they're still 5*. Been spending a lot of time on maxing out players in pitching, running and throwing, and haven't touched hitting with either team yet.

Really, all I did trained them three times. I put everyone on running twice and today I just trained them on throwing. That's all.
