Steve, I know they have the screens...I was talking about the satellites to beam the full games to us. If YOU don't know about the terrible showing of the 2 Chinese teams in the Jr.'s play in South Africa, then you might not also know the excellence of our team. Our "best Pitcher" was there, and played, but as it turned out, she wasn't really the Best on those days. But we had several more options for "the Best" pitcher to step up...and she did...You would think you could get a DVD of the South African Home and Hosting team... (stands packed ) playing Team USA. When you see what it takes to get one, you'll find the problem....Well I can't argue that completely, but I will say this. There are TV's there, even big flat screens in Russia. But the biggest difference was the quality of umpiring.
I understand your world view.... Glad you are working your end of it. I think in this time of suspension, we should develop a even more prestigious event, World Showcase, that is annual. The Women's World Series. Open to all. The USSSA Pride, or any combo of pro's and any combo of pro's and college players thru to 16 and over. And not genetically altered players.... Just unlimited teams. Lets see who is the best in the world that week. Dreams change almost every night. It would be awesome to see a new Dream team every year.
