Spring Preseason "Wind Up" Tournament Field Set

The field is set for the April 16th Spring Preseason "Wind Up" Tournament, our final Spring Training event of 2011! Eight teams: 6 league teams and 2 non-league teams captained by members of WSEM rosters. Just about the perfect spread we were hoping for in this preseason event. Plenty of our guys loosening up and a bit of new blood to show our game off to. In alphabetical order the participating teams are:

Games will start at 10:30am, but try to get to the fields around 10:00am, so you can be set up, warmed up, and ready to go. Games will be played on 2 fields: Hoppe's Field and a second built behind the house. Each team will get 2 round robin games with 30 minute time limits, and then a double elimination playoff. The playoffs will begin around 1pm with 45 minute time limits, so we can finish before it gets dark just after 8pm. Playoff seeding will be determined by Wins, head-to-head, run differential, then losses in extra innings.

The Mk. II strike zones, made possible by the generous donation of the metal stakes from Brian Meyers of the KWL, will be fabricated on Friday and the first will make its debut on Hoppe's Field during the tournament. The second field will have an experimental, hung strike zone with no post in the ground. This means there will be NO question whether it was the board or stake that was hit on pitches, which is worthy of a celebration on its own!

The championship game will be video taped in full with play-by-play, commentary, special guest announcers, interviews, mocking of the teams playing, and whatever else can be thought of to throw in the mix. The cameras will also be rolling throughout the day. So, practice your poses, celebrations, and, oh yea, your play(!) so you look good when caught on camera.

The weather forecast looks rough, but we will play through as scheduled. Bring layers and extra clothes, and we will see you and your guys at Hoppe's Yard [2497 Bluebush, Monroe, MI] at 10am this Saturday! League teams, be sure to step up, stand out, and make WSEM look good out there! Non-league teams, bring your best and try to show up our WSEM teams!
