I am curious to hear what other locations look like for number of ASA teams, specifically 14u teams. A friend of mine and I counted 16 different 14u teams that currently exist in our area. I am from the Moline, IL area with a population of around 380,000. Last year I could only name 10 or so, but this year there are several new teams that popped up. I think it is great that we have this many girls in the area that want to play the game of softball, but what I fear is that there is going to be a bunch of so-so teams that have 2 or 3 good players and a bunch of rec players that don't know what is coming their way. This will lead to folding of a bunch of teams (like ours did last year BTW).
So, how many teams does your area support?
