Awesome job by Dave and his staff these past few days running the NJ State Tournament.

 

It's a ton of work to run a state tournament, but it went flawlessly and turned out to be a really great 4 days of baseball up in the woods.

 

I know us LL fanatics had a great time.

 

Well done Dave!

Thanks Mike. It was great to see you guys. Wish I could've spent a little more time hanging out.

The games were great. The teams were fabulous. The fans were awesome. Thanks for your play by play on FB.

How does NJ decide where to host State's?
In CT we are on a rotational basis with each District taking their turn.
Only issue I have with this is that some teams as well as fans have to travel across the state.
I am wondering if something more centrally located would be better.

I believe in NY they are currently playing in the Bronx for a 3 year stint.
Same situation if you are from the other side of the state.

NJ rotates each year by Section (4 Sections) and then the Districts take turns as well.
We have 4 Districts in our Section so Dave has another 16 years before he has to host LLB states again.

We do that for all state tournaments.

 

2 of the sections are North Jersey, 1 central, and 1 south. Since the state's were up in the north this year, only 2 of the teams needed hotels.

The state of Florida rotates all of the State Tournaments between the 8 Sections.
https://www.eteamz.c...38;site=2904511

Each Section decides which District/League will Host (they also normally rotate the Districts/Leagues that Host).

The 2017 Hosts/Schedules are Posted on the State Tournament Website.

By the way, it's a pretty long drive from Section 1, Pensacola to Section 8, Miami (~10 hours)!!!

Here is ours: http://www.eteamz.co...nbydistrict.pdf

NJ is probably 3 hours top to bottom without traffic.
There is always traffic, every direction, all the time, so traversing the state is quite the journey.

We only have 1 major hotel with 20 minutes of the tourney site.
I worked with the hotel to reserve rooms.
The teams then called and filled them.

New Jersey has had a long standing tradition inside of the rotation.
It goes back to the 1980s from what I can remember.
They are traditionally one of the most organized states and should be a model for others that are lacking direction.

They are traditionally one of the most organized states and should be a model for several others that are lacking direction.

 

I'm not sure if this has ever been said about NJ in any capacity before.  :D

That's not to say that everyone in that room plays well in the sandbox together... and there are times that the Association has gotten carried away with a few "policies" that they have created.

 

But they are organized.

I will not confirm or deny the manner or lack there of which they may or may not play in said sandbox or even that a sandbox exists, which may or may not be a sandbox depending upon one DAs definition of "sandbox" vs another's....

Oh I can.
I'm 500 miles removed! LOL
And I am figuring that the next state meeting might be a real humdinger after Carmine Conti's District Bracket!!!!
:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

A "humdinger" of a District Bracket ???

You are supposed to use one of the "Approved/Published" Brackets.
If not, you need approval of the Region to use something different.
So, what did Carmine do/use???

That was the long bracket right?
With like 20 days in between games.

20 days between games in a District Tournament is, to put it politely, insane !!!
Does anyone know the reason why?

=======================
By the way, the 2017 LL Tournament Calendar for 10-12 BB starts on June 26 and ends on July 20, that's 25 days.
Pretty tough to do a District Tournament in 25 days if you take 20 days off !!!

20 was a slight exaggeration. It was something insane like 4 days between games. Essentially you only needed 1 or 2 pitchers.

It had 4-6 days between most games.
It was pretty bizarre... and made its rounds on social media.
