    Wizards elite 03 would like to thank the Diamond Chix for another great Pumpkin Smash. As others have mentioned, well run tournament with great competition. Well worth getting back to Toledo after midnight on Monday morning.

    We played very well this weekend, fighting through injuries and three late nights. We witnessed great sportsmanship and a lot of fun throughout the weekend. Our bats finally came to life as we enjoyed an 82-13 run differential.

    Pool Play:
    Won 19-0 over NEO Freeze
    Tied 1-1 with Pittsburgh Passion
    Won 10-3 over Sluggers 03

    Bracket Play:

    Won 9-0 over Ohio Energy
    Won 13-0 over Ohio Platinum
    Won 8-1 over Stingrays 04 (that team is going to give people fits this Summer)
    Won 9-6 over SunDogs (Williams)
    Won 13-2 over Wolfpack (Roby)

    Great tournament, our girls had a blast and gained much needed experience! We will definitely be coming again next fall! Go Stampede
     
  10. Stingrays 04 would like to thank the Diamond Chix organization for a great tournament! This was our first experience at the Pumpkin Smash and we will definitely be back. We finished with a 5-1 record and lost to the tournament champions, Wizards Elite 03. Hats off to them, a great team and very well coached!

    Ohio Monsters had a great time at the 2015 Diamond Chix Pumpkin Smash. Everything was great except for the weather (on the 2nd weekend). It was the 1st tournament for 4 of the 5 Monsters Teams, and we look forward to seeing many of you in upcoming tournaments!

    Any word on the young lady sliding into 3rd from Sundogs Gray? She hurt her ankle during the game against the Sapphires. Hope she is ok.

    Why was there only one umpire on Saturday?
    Was that a VSP thing because they lost money on gate due to weather?

    I asked the umpires and they said the Tournament Director wanted to save money. One umpire instead of two umpires saves the Diamond Chix about $45 per game. I think all teams should get a partial refund because there was some bad calls made due to only one umpire and it is a lot of pressure on that lone umpire when tensions get strained. TBH I think it was pretty cheap for them to do that during the pool games.
