    Outlaws '03 played some pretty good ball at the Thunder friendlies going 4-3. We had an opportunity to face 4 OFC top-10 teams and I just want to give props to each of them as they truly are very talented, well-coached and classy teams that we will look forward to facing as much as possible this year. We had very close games with Lasers and Hurricanes, but just simply did not continue to hit at the level the Sundogs and Vipers did in our games. Don't let the "friendly" part fool you... those teams brought it against us and did not let up. They earned my highest respect and go to the top of my OFC list for this week. We also had an opportunity to face WV Diamond Xpress, Michigan Batbusters Gold and Thunder '04 (outstanding '04 team!!!). Again, all very talented and well-coached teams! Thanks for the invite and well-run friendlies weekend Thunder Elite.

    L Lasers Black 5-6
    W WV Diamond Xpress 15-2
    W Hurricanes '03 4-2
    L Sundogs '03 13-2
    W MI Batbusters Gold 6-1
    W Thunder Elite '04 14-2
    L Vipers '03 11-4

    Hi Everyone,

    Thunder Elite 03 had a great time at our organization's sponsored friendlies in Rootstown Ohio. 7 games against some of the very best teams in our 5 state region is a nice and challenging way to spend our weekend. We went 1-6 on the weekend but we hold our heads high given the caliber of teams we played. I want to thank all the organizations that came and hope to see you again as this season continues.

    Our scores

    WVA Diamonds 8-7 L
    Sundogs 03 8-1 L
    Wolfpack 03 7-5 W
    Hurricanes 03 10-3 L
    Michigan Batbusters 13-2 L
    Ohio Vipers 03 15-3 L
    Indy Dreams 03 8-1 L

    All of the Ohio teams were impressive and it was nice meeting them all again. I must say the Vipers are an amazing offensive team. Sean has a very strong group!

    The dreaded revert back....unfortunately a uncompleted inning doesnt mean anything because you never know what would of happened. Fortunately these were friendlies so scores aren't as important as good reps...

    Sundogs went 6-1
    PA Outlaws took it to us. Good loss learned a lot.
    Lasers was a great back and forth game ended up 9-7 us. We won the toss and chose to hit. That's what you do when it's drop dead. They would have had time to hit again but it took a looong time for their catcher to come out and the big meeting in the circle had to be broken up by the ump. They are a really good team and these are just scrimmages so it really shouldn't matter.
    Other wins over Thunder Elite, Outlaws, Wolfpack, Indy Dreams and WV Diamonds.

    I really wish these games were not even scored. Trying to get ready for the season most teams were doing things they typically wouldn't do when it counts. I know we all play to win but when are you supposed to work on your game and let all your girls play with out being judged or voted on? At the end of the day the best teams will surface and everyone will know who they are.

    ** I say all that as I cast my vote!:)

    Drop dead, revert back...can you call it a win if you have more at bats than the home team? Lasers and Sundogs were back and forth the whole game. Lasers were home team, winning the inning prior to time expired, had just got the third out. So according to revert back rules, Lasers "won". I really don't think they were worried about time limit as much as working on adjustments to be better next time. Win or lose...either way, would have been fun to play a full game.

    The Drop Dead revert back is exactly what it states. Game ends at 80 minutes and the score reverts back to last completed inning. Its the only way to run a friendly if in fact you want to stay on time. Yes there are some hard luck losses in that format,but you see heartbreak losses in finish the inning as well.

    I totally get it. I just was not sure when reporting scores. I want to be clear, the Outlaws played very well and hit the ball, defensively they made plays. I am taking nothing away from them.

    As a team we wanted to work out some kinks. We moved the batting order around, worked on NOT throwing fastballs, defensive plays, and other stuff. Its what you do at a friendly, right?

    CarMad stated it well....

    Not sure revert back does anything for anyone except create situations of "what if". I get the stay on time stuff, but in the sprit of the game finish the inning with the home team. This way there is no question. Just my .02. We are not talking about 3 inning ITB's. and hard luck loss? Not sure anything was on the line except for the poll? This event was a premier event with some great teams. I enjoyed seeing folks I had not seen since last summer, seeing the sun, and watching 12u softball!

  20. Thunder Elite 04 definitely went through the meat grinder this weekend as the only true 04 team at the Thunder Elite friendlies. The scores and outcomes of our games definitely do not indicate the great experience and reps we had over the weekend. It truly was awesome being on the same field as some of these teams. It was great for my girls to see where we want to be in a year. We had some good innings and we had some very bad innings on the weekend. The bottom line is these girls did not give up, they played with heart and got better.

    We were 1-6 on the weekend.

    Loss vs. LIDS Indy Deams 03
    Loss vs. Michigan Batbusters 03
    Win vs. WV Diamond Express
    Loss vs. Central Ohio Vipers 03
    Loss vs. Ohio Hurricanes 03
    Loss vs. Lasers Black
    Loss vs. Ohio Outlaws

    Thank you to all teams in attendance and for being class acts for my team to look up to. We will be at the Breast Cancer Shootout this weekend!
