    Decent size complex but doesn't seem like nearly enough fields to host with the current format. Must be splitting it into septate weeks I guess. Most of the complexes by where we play now are 12 plus fields. Tyger river sc has 13.

    As they did it in turf they have 14 field they can use. Easy enough to turn a baseball turf field into a softball configuration. So expect them to use at most 2 locations.It has been a two week event for many years anyway (8-12U one week, 14U-18U the other week). There are plenty of good complexes nearby to make it viable.

    Last few years they have only been using 4-6 fields at Disney and then using the same at the fields at Fortune Park and Osceola Park.

    Yes that's different. When we were there we only had 3 or 4 playable days because of rain and used every field they could find.
