1) On behalf of the entire Chris Caron Golf Tournament Committee; I wanted to take a moment to thank you for posting Information pertaining to the Tournament on the League Website. The Tournament was held yesterday-August 2nd – at Pequabuck Golf Club. From all accounts, everyone who attended had a great time.
Everyone that attended the event received Gift Bag Items and a Golf Towel that featured a Tournament Logo designed around Chris’s # 6. Not sure if you believe in the power of Numbers – when the dust settled (I kid you not) we ended up raising $6,000.00 Thank you for your support of the Tournament.
2) My name is David Berry, and I’m a freelance videographer in the Westchester/Putnam/Fairfield area. Among the many services I provide, I video sports events for individuals, i.e. for college recruitment, and teams, usually sectional games. I’d like to offer my services for the CTSBL post season games coming up soon.
Usually, for baseball, I shoot with three cameras, edit in graphics for scores, and slow-mo replays where appropriate. This gives a superior production than a single straight-shoot video. I then offer the games on DVD.
Typically, for school and community leagues, where the videos are for personal use, I offer two options. #1, for $20/DVD, the organization would take the orders and fees. I would then bulk ship the DVDs to the organization, who would then distribute them. Or option #2, since your league’s players come from all over the area, for $30/DVD, orders can be placed on line and DVDs shipped directly to them. You can see how this would look at www.dcbvideo.com/ssspa.
I looked at the playoff schedule on your web page. Unfortunately, if there is interest in having the final series (best of 3) recorded, I can only commit to the third game (if necessary) on August 25. I’m already committed to another league on the 21st, with the 22nd as a rain date. I could be available for game 2 on the 22nd, but I wouldn’t know until the 21st. If there is interest by teams for the earlier rounds, I am available for most dates.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reply here, or call (845) 940-4027, or my cell, 914-960-8493
Thank you for your time, and I hope to hear from you.
3)Eddie, I want to share a quick story with you that tells a little bit about how far the Tri-State League has come. I covered the Connecticut Collegiate Baseball League championship game Monday for my newspaper. It was Southington against Tobacco Valley. Southington won 7-1 on the strength of Ben XXXXXXXXXX two run homer. He also closed out the ninth inning throwing gas with two ks. The league is for current and former college players ages 18-25. Ben is 24. I talked to him after the game. “Next year is my last year,” he said. “I love playing. After that, I’m going to play in Hartford Twilight or the Tri-State League.” I was sort of shocked. Southington is a very good baseball town and he’s well aware that Hartford and Tri-State are considered the upper echelon. It made me feel good, as someone who has always loved the league and considered playing, coaching and running it to be some of the best years of my life. I miss the good old days, especially come state tourney and playoff time. Go Tri-State.
The following represents the 2010 Playoff Brackets. Changes to last year’s playoffs include:
- The addition of a clause whereby two teams may not play each other twice in the playoffs until a possible rematch in the championship game. If two teams meet for a second time in the loser’s bracket, all the remaining teams in the loser’s bracket will be paired up whereby the highest seeded team is pit against the lowest seeded team remaining.
- CONSOLATION PLAYOFFS CANCELLED due to lack of committment from participating teams.
