Also I had forgotten that they don't ask anybody for ID in advance so we could have picked up Jesus Christ to play for us and as long as we didn't face any local teams that would have known what Christ looked like and that Christ wasn't actually a D player and that he was on somebody else's (upper level) roster, they'd have no reason to protest him and we would suffer no ill consequences.
That would never happen in ASA. I'll be 100% honest. ASA National's kick the shit out of USSSA Worlds. In my opinion, it's not even close. You are just another $$ sheep in the herd in USSSA.

I think I might push for us to play some ASA next year. If we can. Seeing as they have no tournament program in NY and the one in CT is directly related to their state tourney that we can't really get into.

Max, honestly, you guys could probably just call up the ASA director and get a bid straight to the National. Someone from JNK should be able to tell you how they got their bid.

More teams should look into it just to experience it, and then maybe you'll see the difference between the 2 and how you are treated. USSSA could give 2 fucks about you and you totally can feel it. The exact opposite occures w/ ASA. Your asked for ID, you sign the paperwork, official scorers, the whole 9. It's a far better tourny I think. Maybe in D it's a little different because of the amount of temas so they have to cut some corners, but I know in C, it's not like that. I think the biggest ASA C I've been to was 97 or some shit in 2004.

ASA runs a tight ship, went to the "D" in alabama last year, All bats are checked, and I saw bats getting thrown out all tourny, Even for having knob cuffs, people bitch about ASA, But I think then run the best national hands down, as far as teams usually between 100-and 120 for D

Tourney Ball in our area is almost nil. There are two softball sized fenced fields that I'm aware of in all of Westchester (both in Somers). There is less and less participation in competitive softball every year.
