Our team played in this event last year and it was very disappointing. There were a lot of promises that were not kept such as, Opening ceremonies for the kids (no pin trading)- we were told just to pin trade when we could, no dragging/prepping of fields during the day. We were told there were going to be all of these teams from out of town and that they would have full divisions, only to get there and find out divisions were combined and the out of town teams never showed. This is just another tournament and you pay double for it. I would not recommend this tournament for those thinking about it. A lot of the teams that played last year felt the same way.

I would agree with Stix, but I would add one additional note. This seems to be the case with all tournaments at Legacy from my experiences.

Specific complaints include:

*No split gold and silver brackets as promised.  
*No field maintenance (drag) between games as promised
*x2 on the travel teams not showing-last year teams were penciled in then at last minutes loads of team cencelling after we already paid
*Pin trading an opening ceremonies were just kind of scrapped. This is a big issue as teams spend hundreds of dollars for pins and need some type of official function to trade them. There is not time before or after games
*Not having new game balls for several games as well. We supplied our own the 1st 2 days
*Pool structure to make sure every parent/family member pay gate fees everyday.
*Inexperienced umpires having trouble making calls and keeping control of the field (Im sure there are a lot of good umps at this event but the two we had for most of our games were knuckleheads)

Maybe this year will be better?

Agreed 100%...also if you played on the lower level they had no bathrooms at all for 4 baseball fields going all day. You had to walk to the top. This year we will be going to Liberty. You have to make an impression in this business. BASEBALLS were junk and any coach coaching could see that. Both teams at one point agreed to switch balls but umpire would not allow.

I coach a 9AA team and was considering this tournament but I have heard alot of bad comments outside of this chain as well about this WS.

Is anyother AA teams considering going to Omaha instead for there USSSA WS and if so have you heard any comments from that good or bad?

I have to say.  In spite of the negative reviews here, our team participated in this tournament.  I think it was a mistake.  The bottom level concession stand closed early daily.  So if you were the late games, you had to go up to the top.  MANY of the umpires were questionable at best.  They didn't know rules, etc.  The scheduling was not great.  Some teams had double headers, some had to come down for 1 game per day. (Likely to push daily entry fees)  The lack of opening ceremonies, etc is not good.  The players were trying to trade pins before and after games.  To me, it took away from the whole experience.  Now...they did drag the fields after some of the games....I would not recomend participating in this tournament again.  Lesson learned!

This year was the 2nd time we participated in this tournament and it will be our last. We are an 11u AA team and there were some issues that they could have fixed/made right but didn't. We had an 11u A team from Kansas (0-10 in USSSA play) in our division that brought in 7 AAA/major players to stack their roster. These kids all played league ball in Lee's Summit so everyone knew them and who they actually played for. Of course they went on to win it all...undefeated. After our game with this team I brought it up to the tournament director. He told me it is ok to bring in players but they should be A/AA players and that he would talk to the coach. He wished he had time to check everyones roster but it just cant happen. Bracket play starts and no changes. He is using the same kids. I talked with another team and they were told by the director that he didn't find out until too late. I call BS because the director knew after the 1st pool game. You want to stack your roster because your kids did not play to your expectations...great then play to the level of talent you brought in. I am just glad we were a local team and didn't travel from Oklahoma or Arkansas for this to happen to us.
