How did you get your start in softball and how did you get to the upper level?
I got my start in softball by playing in local leagues.  Then I started playing some tournament ball in 2000 with some buddies around the Missouri and Midwest area all mainly being NSA and ASA sanctioned.   I got my first look at the upper level in 2008 playing 5 Conference events that year and I haven't wanted to play anything else after I seen what it's all about at this level.   I have been playing and co sponsoring a team in the conference every year since .

I look for talent at the local levels there is alot of guys in our area that can play at this level, its just getting the players that can commit to the long weekends of traveling !

Playing in the Major in 2010 for the first time would have to be at the top !

Is slowpitch softball a sport or a game?

What is the best improvement upper level softball could make to bring in more sponsors?
I think limit the number of major players to each team and maybe it would bring more sponsors back into this great game !

What is your favorite non-World tournament?
Dudley and Aurora, Colorado

Is the game better or worse with homerun limits and why?
Better.   I believe it gives a lower level team a chance to compete

Who was the best team in softball history?
Well I did get to see Steeles play one time when I was just a kid but don't remember alot about them just what I have read!   I think Resmondo has to rank as one of the best teams in softball history them guys can do it all and are very fun to watch !!
