Share your experiences with the Palatine Angels Summer Fastpitch Softball Tournament below Back to event details page.
Be very careful when registering for any Palatine HS affiliated tournaments. The tournament director is also the coach and several questionable things happened.
1) Drop dead of 1hr 25min. Personally drop dead is a bad rule but in this case when playing the host team they decided at 1hr 25min that we would keep playing. Of course his team was trailing and the umpires allowed it because he (Jeff) was the tournament director.
2) Changing game schedule (opponents) without notice. This happened several times to several teams. And the change always seemed to favor the hosting team.
3) Brackets were never published and even after being asked to see the brackets we weren't allowed to. So you are in bracket play but you don't know who you play if you win, only the tournament director knows.
4) Games were starting at 7:30am (minor problem but only tournament that I've ever seen do this).
This is a very poorly ran tournament, stay away!!!
