Thank you very much to all of the volunteers that worked so hard on the fields this morning to try to get the fields into playable condition. We wouldn’t be NAGAAA without you!

    Are we still able to register at fields? Driving in from Houston now along with 3 of my players

    • From a post yesterday afternoon at the Austin 2016 Facebook page: “Tuesday ONLY registration has moved to the Hilton Hotel 4th floor Governor’s Ballroom from 9am-6pm.”

    Hey guys please update the link we are not able to read anything for minute to minute info

    • Jeff — What kind of info are you seeking? The latest update is that we’re trying to get a revised potential schedule out by about 8pm CT?

      • Hello, I got alerts on my phone, including “all pool play games cancelled” and yet when I check this site there are no updates or details refecting the alerts.

  3. I’m sure this has already been discussed but I think there are turf softball fields in Austin that I’m sure holds off the water better if they are available but I’m not positive. Just a thought

    • And also if anyone knows anyone with a helicopter that would be willing to come to the fields to blow all the rain off that would be great

  4. Question…so is the A division still having pool play games? Or is elimination starting Thursday for them as well? I’m asking because Dallas family wants to come for the day and can’t decide on when would be best for them to come.

    • In an effort to provide an equal tournament across divisions, ALL pool play games for ALL divisions are being cancelled. We’ll go directly into Double Elimination when we’re able to get the tournament started.

      • Thank you! So is it going to be random seed or by team rating? And when can we expect to see schedule.
