Illinois Class D Cash tournament

With Over Four Thousand Dollars To Be Paid Out.

AURORA: Illinois Softball Report is please to announce that they have come to an agreement with the Illinois USSSA Hall of Fame to host a Men's Class D money tournament. The tournament will be held September 10h & 11th at Harlem Community Center Complex in Rockford.
In order to ensure that only class D or E teams and their legitimate Class D or E players participate in this tournament all teams that enter will be restricted to their current frozen USSSA roster at the time of the tournament. Only those teams that played in a 2005 Illinois USSSA State Tournament will be eligible to participate in this tournament. There will be no rosters additions allowed at this tournament, only your current class D or E frozen USSSA roster will be allowed, period.
The tournament will limited to thirty-two teams using a format that is different from the normal double elimination events that most twelve inch softball players are used to using. A four game guarantee will be used with Saturday being 'Pool Play' and Sunday being a single elimination tournament (seeded by Saturday's 'Pool Play' results). A progressive payout will be used which guarantees that a minimum of 75% or 24 out of the 32 teams earn some money back. Only participating teams that go 0-4 will not receive any money back from this tournament. It is even possible (but highly unlikely) that all 32 teams will all earn some money back in this event.
On Saturday every team will play a 'round robin' (three games) within their pool of four teams. Every game will be worth $25.00 to the winning team with a one hundred dollar ($100.00) bonus to the pool champion.
On Saturday (based on 32 teams) two thousand dollars ($2000.00 - 48 games @ $25.00 per game to the winning team plus eight pool champions @ $100.00 per) will be won by the participating teams in this tournament.
On Sunday, all four teams from each pool will be spilt into four different quarter bracket of the tournament so two teams from the same pool could not meet each other again until the semi-finals or finals on Sunday. In the first round the eight pool champions would be paired against the eight fourth place finishers from Saturday's pool play. All eight second place finishers from Saturday's pool play would play the eight third place finishers from pool play in the first round on Sunday's single elimination tournament. The second round would feature eight games involving the winner's from the pool champions against the pool fourth place finishers VS the eight winner's of the pool play second place finishers against the pool play third place finishers.
Sunday's first round would be worth fifty dollars ($50.00 X 16 games =$800.00) to the winning team. Sunday's second round would be worth seventy-five dollars ($75.00 X 8 games = $600.00) to the winning team. Sunday's third round would be worth one hundred dollars ($100.00 X 4 Games = $400.00) to the winning team. Sunday's fourth round (semi-finals) would be worth one hundred fifty dollars ($150.00 X 2 games = $300.00) to the winning team. The championship game would be worth two hundred dollars to the winning team.
On Sunday twenty-three hundred ($2300.00- again based on 32 teams) will be won by the teams bringing the payout for both days to a combine forty-three hundred dollars ($4300.00) earned by legitimate Class D & Class E teams with only their sanctioned Class D or Class E roster being used in this event.
Entry fee is $275.00 and after all expenses (cash payouts, field rental, umpires, insurance, balls, tournament director's fee, and all other miscellaneous expenses) are paid the remaining balance of monies collected will go the Illinois USSSA Hall Of Fame.
The pool game times for Saturday will be {one of three time slots} 1) 9, 10 & noon, 2) 11, 1 & 3, and 3) 2, 4 & 5. Another unique thing to this tournament will be that as you enter your team into this event you will be allowed to pick which pool time you want to play in until that time slot has filled completely up. So if playing at a certain time of day on Saturday would be beneficial to your ball club be sure to enter early and have that time slot reserved.
Only USSSA Class D or Class E teams with a paid in full entry fee plus having their roster on line will be accepted into this tournament. For more information or questions contact Illinois Softball Report at (630) 375-9632 or E-mail I.S.R. at irv@ilsoftballreport.com.
