Triple Crown Sports, West Va. ended a $475 tournament with no reason.
The Triple Crown Sports Baseball Tournament in Morgantown, West Va.6/25 - 6/27 2010 ended the 12U tournament early stating there was a storm coming from 150 miles out.
Each team paid them $475.00 to participate plus $3.00 entry fee per person to attend. The fields were playable as only a 5 minute shower had occurred during the day. 12 year old children do not understand why they are not allowed to play. The tournament directors only guarantee 3 games of play and only partially rebate the fee if less games are played.
This is understandable during currently occurring inclement weather. But when it is sunny and 90 degrees without a cloud in the sky it is unacceptable to cancel the remainder of the tournament. Children do not understand what a "financial racket" is.
Every 12U team was adversely affected and this is an injustice to the sport and the kids.I hope you will think twice before entering your baseball or softball team in any of Triple Crown Sports tournaments in this region.
