The NAGAAA Board and the Austin Host Committee 2016 are working together to develop a plan of action for the completion of the 2016 GSWS.
We are exploring all options and resources with Austin Sports Commission, Austin Convention and Visitors Bureau, Austin Parks and Recreation, and Austin local government to provide a solution.
The options include play at Krieg, SE Metro, Havins and playing around-the-clock. Obviously, we can’t give any updates until we assess all complexes in the morning.
With that, the NAGAAA Board has decided the following:
all games in progress will be completed under the format in which they were started
then, we will go to a one-pitch, no new inning after 30 minutes format
The goal is to resume the regular tournament format for the trophy games on Saturday.
In order for us to complete the GSWS, we may have a call for volunteers to assist ground crews to get fields ready for play. We wouldn’t have gotten this far in this tournament without the hundreds of volunteers that have already worked on the fields alongside the Krieg staff.
“In all my years, I have never seen an organization volunteer to this extent. I know you guys are serious about softball. Our team is just as committed to this as NAGAAA.” — Ashley McLerran, Athletics Program Supervisor at Krieg,
