I am curious about something. The area I live in has a time limit for a bracket game of 75 minutes (pool games 60-65). I was chatting with another parent who has two daughters playing college ball (the third is playing 14U TB with DD). He was telling me that every tourney they played on the West coast was a straight up 7 inning game. No time limits. Which leads me to wonder how it is in other areas of the country.
Time limits certainly change the dynamics of how a game is coached and how it is played. I think I've seen a gateway game make it to to the 5th once, but it's been about an average of three in my experience. The associations around her load up with teams and the tourneys and probably make a killing off a weekend of softball.
What has been your experience?
