    DW come on, can anyone get on here now?? He’s on an E team out of Illinois.

    • DW says:

      Gosoftball shows 2 ‘C’ teams but yes if you want to play conference and put your name out there you can do a free agent page.

      Also in Illinois there is no more ‘C’.


  2. Kidding me says:

    Seriously, this is becoming a joke, just because someone wants to play conference doesn’t mean they can.

    • DW says:

      Thats what everyone said about Chapman who I listed as a free agent last week. Then a bunch of upper level players all said he was legit.

      Some states only have D and E. This guy here according to has played ‘C’.

      Lots of jealousy out there especially from Illinois players. I remember when people said Zirkle was no good and a D player. lol

  3. From Illinois says:

    I’m from Illinois and haven’t heard of this guy or any of the NSA or USSSA teams he’s played on. Take that any way you may, he could very well be a diamond in the rough.
